Close your tired eyes, relaxing them
Count from one to ten and open them
All these heavy thoughts will try to weigh you down, but not this time

Way up in the air, you're finally free, and you can stay up there, right next to me
All this gravity will try to pull you down, but not this time

When the sun goes down, and the lights burn out,
Then it's time for you to shine
Brighter than the shooting star, so shine no matter where you are
Fill the darkest night, with a brilliant light,
'Cause it's time for you to shine
Brighter than a shooting star, so shine no matter where you are, tonight

Whoa, whoa, whoa
Brighter than a shooting star,
Shine no matter where you are, tonight

Gazing into my eyes, when the fire starts,
And fan the flame so hot, it melts our hearts
All the pouring rain, will try to put it out, but not this time

Let your colors burn, and brightly burst,
Into a million sparks, but all dispersed and illuminate a world,
That'll try to bring you down, but not this time

When the sun goes down, and the lights burn out,
Then it's time for you to shine
Brighter than the shooting star, so shine no matter where you are
Fill the darkest night, with a brilliant light,
'Cause it's time for you to shine
Brighter than a shooting star, so shine no matter where you are, tonight

Whoa, whoa, whoa
Brighter than a shooting star,
Shine no matter where you are, tonight

A thousand heartbeats beating time, and makes this dark planet come alive
So when the lights flicker out tonight, you gotta shine

When the sun goes down, and the lights burn out,
Then it's time for you to shine
Brighter than the shooting star, so shine no matter where you are
Fill the darkest night, with a brilliant light,
'Cause it's time for you to shine
Brighter than a shooting star, so shine no matter where you are, tonight

Whoa, whoa, whoa
Brighter than a shooting star,
Shine no matter where you are, tonight
