Shine a Light

MS. FLEMING

Deep inside of everyone
There's a hot ball of shame
Guilt, regret, anxiety
Fears we dare not name
But, if we show the ugly parts
That we hide away
They turn out to be beautiful
By the light of day!

Why not-

COMPANY

Shine, shine, shine a light!

MS. FLEMING

On your deepest fears!

COMPANY

Let in sunlight now

MS. FLEMING

And your pain will disappear!

COMPANY

Shine, shine, shine

MS. FLEMING

And your scars and your flaws

COMPANY

Will look lovely because you shine!

MS. FLEMING

You shine a light

COMPANY

Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light

STONER CHICK

Everyday's a battlefield
When pride's on the line

PREPPY

I attack your weaknesses

STONER CHICK & MS. FLEMING

And pray you don't see mine

BITTER GEEK

But if I share my ugly parts

BITTER GEEK, GOTH GIRL & MS. FLEMING

And you show me yours

BITTER GEEK & GOTH GIRL

Our love can knock our walls down

BITTER GEEK, GOTH GIRL, STONER CHICK, PREPPY & MS. FLEMING

And unlock all our-

BITTER GEEK, GOTH GIRL, STONER CHICK & PREPPY

Doors!

MS. FLEMING

Go on-

MS. FLEMING & COMPANY

Shine, shine, shine a light

MS. FLEMING

On your deepest fears!

COMPANY

Let in sunlight now

MS. FLEMING

And your pain will-

MS. FLEMING & COMPANY

Disappear!

MS. FLEMING

Who wants to share what's in their heart?
No volunteers? Fine, I'll start
My name's Pauline
I live alone
My husband left
My kids are grown
In the 60s love was free
That did not work out well for me
The revolution came and went
Tried to change the world
Barely made a dent
I have struggled with despair
I've joined a cult
Chopped off my hair
I chant, I prayed, but god's not there
So Steve! I'm ending our affair!
And I faked it, every single time
Woo, that feels fan-freaking-tastic
1, 2, take me home kids!

COMPANY

Shine, shine, shine a light

MS. FLEMING

On your deepest fears!

COMPANY

Let in sunlight now

MS. FLEMING

And your pain will disappear!

COMPANY

Shine, shine, shine

MS. FLEMING

And your scars and your flaws

MS. FLEMING & Company

Will look lovely because you shine!

MS. FLEMING

You shine, you shine a liiiiiiiiiiiight

COMPANY

Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light

MS. FLEMING

Yeah!

MS. FLEMING & COMPANY

Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine a light! YEAH!
