  • And its strange how soon you forget
    That you’re like stars
    They only show up when it’s dark
    Cause they don’t know their worth
    And I think you need to stop following misery’s lead
    Shine away shine away shine away
    Isn’t it time you got over how fragile you are
    We’re all waiting
    Waiting on your supernova
    Cause that’s who you are
    And you’ve only begun to shine
    Anna Nalick, Shine
