NEWSBOYS


Shine Lyrics

Dull as dirt, you can't assert the kind of light

That might persuade a strict dictator to retire

Fire the army, teach the poor origami

The truth is in, the proof is when

You hear your heart start asking

"What's my motivation?"


And try as you may, there is no a way

To explain the kind of change

That would make an Eskimo renounce fur

That would make a vegetarian barbecue hamster

Unless you can trace this

About face to a certain sign


Shine

Make 'em wonder what you've got

Make 'em wish that they were not

On the outside, looking bored


Shine

Let it shine before all men

Let'em see good works and then

Let 'em glorify the Lord


Out of the shaker and onto the plate

It isn't Karma, it sure ain't fate

That would make a deadhead sell his van

That would make a schizophrenic turn in his crayons

Oprah freaks and science seeks a rationale

That shall excuse this strange behavior


When you let it shine, you will inspire

The kind of entire turnaround

That would make a bouncer take ballet

Even bouncers who aren't happy

But out of the glare with nowhere to turn

You ain't gonna learn it on, "What's My Line?"


Shine

Make 'em wonder what you've got

Make 'em wish that they were not

On the outside, looking bored


Shine

Let it shine before all men

Let'em see good works and then

Let 'em glorify the Lord


Shine

Make 'em wonder what you've got

Make 'em wish that they were not

On the outside, looking bored


Shine

Let it shine before all men

Let'em see good works and then

Let 'em glorify the Lord


Shine

Make 'em wonder what you've got

Make 'em wish that they were not

On the outside, looking bored


Shine

Let it shine before all men

Let'em see good works and then

Let 'em glorify the Lord


Shine

Make 'em wonder what you've got

Make 'em wish that they were not

On the outside, looking bored


Shine

Let it shine before all men

Let'em see good works and then

Let 'em glorify the Lord

Shine
