lyrics

If You Wanna See 'Em Shine

You're like a treasure chest
I can see the gems sparkle when you do your best
You're filled with life, you're filled with life
And if you wanna see 'em shine
Be what you were made to be
And if you wanna see 'em shine
Don't be afraid to be free
And if you wanna see something fine
Be the best you can be

You're like an art museum
The thing you got, they’re gonna cry when they see 'em
You got soul, Oh, baby baby you got soul
And if you wanna see 'em shine
I hope you do what you love
And if you wanna see 'em shine
Listen to the voice from above
And if you wanna see something fine
Do what you're proud of

You're like the weather in the sky
They can ask you any question and you sure won't lie
You tell the truth, with your life you tell the truth
So if you wanna be sincere
Live by your heart and your hand
And if you wanna be sincere
Speak so that I understand
And if you wanna be sincere,
You can!

We're all like the moon in the night
All the beauty we possess comes from the sun's light
The sun is Love
The sun is Love
And if you wanna feel it shine
Open up your heart
And if you wanna feel it shine
Open up your heart
And if you wanna feel it shine
Be a work of art!
