Shine On
by Joshua Luke Smith

Album: Shine On - Single


Intro
Ooh, na-na
Ooh, na-na

Pre-Chorus
Oh my Lord, can You hear me now? (Ooh, na-na)
Oh my Lord, man, I've been so down
I be waitin' for my time, I be waitin' for my shine (Ooh, na-na)
But the night is always darkest before the sunrise so

Chorus
Shine on, we've been waiting all night long, uh (Ooh, na-na)
Shine on, we believe that the light will come, yeah (Ooh, na-na)
Shine on, we've been waiting all night long, yeah (Ooh, na-na)
Shine on, we believe that the light will come (Ooh, na-na)

Verse 1
Fighting like a Titan, writing hooks like Mike Tyson
What I'm rhyming's getting violent
Walter White with the ricin
Tell the devil I'ma fight him
Sick of being silent
War paint on my face, out here looking like a Viking
Pillage the village, poetic realness with the lyrics
So much vision in my spirit, make a blind man see an image
Painting pictures with my pain
Nothing left to lose
Pay for every word I'm formin', I got nothing left to prove

Pre-Chorus
Oh my Lord, can You hear me now?
Oh my Lord, man, I've been so down
I be waitin' for my time, I be waitin' for my shine
But the night is always darkest before the sunrise
Oh my Lord, can You hear me now?
Oh my Lord, man, I've been so down
I be waitin' for my time, I be waitin' for my shine
But the night is always darkest before the sunrise so

Chorus
Shine on, we've been waiting all night long, uh (Ooh, na-na)
Shine on, we believe that the light will come, yeah (Ooh, na-na)
Shine on, we've been waiting all night long, uh (Ooh, na-na)
Shine on, we believe that the light will come (Ooh, na-na)

Verse 2
They keep asking 'bout the accent, like I'm actin' when I'm rappin'
I was born in London, raised by Himalayan mountains
? the same, I've been movin' like a train of the tracks
And sat back of the bus, rappin' untamed
I was actin' like I was hard, deep down when I was scared to death
Thought of sittin' behind bars like a treble clef
I been in prison with these men, they ain't got nothing left
They told me live without regrets and thank the Lord for every breath

Pre-Chorus
Oh my Lord, can You hear me now?
Oh my Lord, man, I've been so down
I be waitin' for my time, I be waitin' for my shine
But the night is always darkest before the sunrise
Oh my Lord, can You hear me now?
Oh my Lord, man, I've been so down
I be waitin' for my time, I be waitin' for my shine
But the night is always darkest before the sunrise so

Chorus
Shine on, we've been waiting all night long, uh (Ooh, na-na)
Shine on, we believe that the light will come, yeah (Ooh, na-na)
Shine on, we've been waiting all night long, uh (Ooh, na-na)
Shine on, we believe that the light will come (Ooh, na-na, we believe that the light will come)

Bridge
After all the things we've been through
All the heartache and the hardships
After all the things we live through
Man, we're only getting started
After all the things we've been through
All the heartache and the hardships
After all the things we live through
Man, we're only getting started
After all the things we've been through (Ooh, ooh)
All the heartache and the hardships (Ooh, ooh)
After all the things we live through
Man, we're only getting started
After all the things we've been through (Ooh, ooh)
All the heartache and the hardships (Ooh, ooh)
After all the things we live through
Man, we're only getting started (One, two, three, four)

Chorus
Shine on, we've been waiting all night long, ayy (Ooh, na-na)
Shine on, we believe that the light will come, uh (Ooh, na-na)
Shine on, we've been waiting all night long, yeah (Ooh, na-na)
Shine on, we believe that the light will come, one more time now (Ooh, na-na)
Shine on, we've been waiting all night long (Ooh, na-na)
Shine on, we believe that the light will come (Ooh, na-na)
Shine on, we've been waiting all night long (Ooh, na-na)
Shine on, we believe that the light will come (Ooh, na-na, we believe that the light will come)
