When We Shine (Lyrics)

written at Sangam World Centre #Arts4Change2016

 

La la la la la la, la la la la la la, la la la la la la la

VERSE 1

I used to live like I was guarded, I felt discarded, and so half-hearted.

Let go of every dream I started, I was afraid to be brave.

And then one day I broke the ceiling, the sky revealing, this love I’m

feeling,

Now my whole world is reeling with all this joy I can’t contain.

La la la la la la, la la la la la la, la la la la la la la

PRE-CHORUS

When you see me dancing, when you hear me sing

There’s a voice inside me, I will let it ring

When the world sings along, we belong,

We are strong, we are free.

When the whole world sings along, we belong,

We are strong, We are free.

CHORUS 2X

When We Shine, When We Shine,

When We Shine, When We Shine,

When We Shine, When We Shine,

When We Shine, When We Shine, When We Shine, When We Shine,

When We Shine

VERSE 2

Birds of a feather flock together, despite the weather, friends forever,

I’ll be here for you whenever you need a rainbow in your cloud.

La la la la, la la la la, la la la la, la

PRE-CHORUS

And when I see you dancing, when I hear you sing

There’s a voice inside you, let it ring

When the world sings along, we belong,

We are strong, we are free.

When the world sings along, we belong,

We are strong, we are free.

CHORUS

When We Shine, When We Shine,

When We Shine, When We Shine,

When We Shine, When We Shine,

When We Shine, When We Shine, When We Shine, When We Shine,

When We Shine

RAP

You are Amazing, You are brilliant, you are bright

Anything is possible when true friends unite!

The world needs love and care and joy

For every girl and for every boy

Be kind, considerate, respectful and true

Because what goes around comes around right back to you

Every little light, that’s yours and mine,

Gonna let it shine, gonna let it shine, gonna let it shine!

CHORUS

When we Shine, (The World is Love)

When We Shine, (The World is Love)

When we Shine (The World is Love)

When we Shine, (The World is Love)

("Shine" or "Be the Light") Spoken in different languages)

(The World is Love, The World is Love, The World is Love)
