Are you ready?
It's your girl Estelle
This album's for my people
Gonna be a struggle
But ya know what
**** it
We're gonna have fun tonight
You feel me?

Oh this is my song
I'm just like you
I gotta fight to stay strong
Just cause it clears
It don't mean that it's over
I'm a shine
While my lights on

[Chorus]
I'm a shine
I'm a shine
I'm a shine
While my lights on
I'm a shine
I'm a shine
I'm a shine
While my lights on

When the lights go down
What you know about me?
What you know
Is what I choose to let you see
But I'm from London
Call me the Big Ben
I grew up in west
Specifically West Kendall
Now let me slow it down
A little bit so you can feel me
Cause where I'm from there
Wasn't **** to do
No not really
Who'da thought
That it would happen
This London chick start rappin'
Now American boys are chattin'
All about me with my wicked accent
And yes I stays on my grind
You go get yours I'll get mine
Don't worry bout it
I'm fine
Cause I'm a shine
Say it

Oh this is my song
I'm just like you
I gotta fight to stay strong
Just cause it clears
It don't mean that it's over
I'm a shine
While my lights on

[Chorus]

Ya don't know
What my hate is baby
9 kids in the yard
It was kinda crazy
Still
No kids thus far myself
I'm scared of the pain
I might not do well as a mom
Still the work gets done
Yes I worry bout bills
But a change gonna come
I wanna play rapper
Rock the bells
But I only gotta stack
For the little Estelza
You don't wanna know
Bout them days that go
I got pain overload
You don't wanna know
About the things I know
I just can't take no more
Most of the time
Though I gotta stay on
I gotta stay real
I gotta stay strong
You know I'm heavy
Cause I roll with gem
So I'm gonna be fresh
When the lights come on
Come on

Oh this is my song
I'm just like you
I gotta fight to stay strong
Just cause it clears
It don't mean that it's over
I'm a shine
While my lights on

[Chorus]

Everybody's watching tonight
It's my time
While the lights on
Everything I wanted is mine
Imam shine

Oh this is my song
I'm just like you
I gotta fight to stay strong
Just cause it clears
It don't mean that it's over
I'm a shine
While my lights on

[Chorus]

I'm a shine
I'm a shine
I'm a shine
I'm a shine
I'm a shine
I'm a shine
While my lights on
