LyricsEdit

Close your tired eyes, relax and then, count from 1 to 10 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 a 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.
Brighter than a shooting star.
So shine no matter where you are.
Tonight. Woah. Woah. Woah.
Brighter than a shooting star.
Shine no matter where you are. Tonight.

Gaze into my eyes, when the fire starts,
And fan the flames so hot, it melts our hearts.
Oh, the pouring rain, will try to put it out.
But not this time.
Let your colors burn, and brightly burst into a million sparks,
That all disperse 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 a 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. Woah. Woah. Woah.
Brighter than a shooting star.
Shine no matter where you are. Tonight.

A thousand heartbeats beat in 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 a 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.
Woah. Woah. Woah.
Brighter than a shooting star.
Shine no matter where you are. Tonight.
