Broadjam Member Reviews

This is a great example of a well-constructed recording. The arrangement is first class. The recording is clean. The vocals are seated just right and the vocal performance is great. The instrumentation is a solid professional delivery supportive of the song. Very soulful!

    - Sam Cooper

This is a nice empowering song! Beautiful lyrics and instrumental!

Lyrics

SHINE
A little girl in a thrift store sweater
(With) Last year's shoes and a smiling face
Tears open the invitation
To the fancy party at the fancy place

Then she looks at her sleeve with the yarn unraveling
Thinks of all the presents at a birthday bash
Remembers the time she arrived with nothing
Crumples up the card and throws it in the trash

Then a voice inside whispers 'til her spirits lift:
"Your love is your gift..."
So SHINE...
SHINE...
God has a plan for you in mind
So SHI-I-INE...
SHINE...
SHINE...
Just be yourself and you'll be fine
Yeah SHI-I-INE
Just SHINE...



All alone in the school library
Typing words that could blow the Nobel Prize away
A teen completes her winning essay
And dreams about the speech she'll make

Then she hears the boys laughing right behind her
"She thinks she's so smart but she's just a freak"
Feels the rejection welling up inside her
Highlights all her work and hits "DELETE"

Then the voice whispers 'til it starts to roar
Don't be less... BE MORE!

SHINE...
SHINE...
God has a plan for you in mind
So SHI-I-INE....
SHINE...
SHINE...
Just be yourself and you'll be fine
Yeah SHI-I-INE
Just SHINE...



Bridge:
Ladies we can light this world
When things seem dark- don't pay no mind
Teach 'em by example, girls...
Be yourself and SHINE
Love yourself and SHINE
SHINE

SHINE...
SHINE...
God has a plan for you in mind
So SH-I-INE
SHINE...
SHINE...
Just be yourself and you'll be fine
SHI-I-INE
Just SHINE...
