Bright

Album: You Should Be Here (2015)
  • Little girl, watching her reflection
    As she parts her curls into four sections
    She says, I don't look like them, I don't look like her
    and I don't want what's on my head
    But baby girl don't be mislead
    Yeah, yeah
    Young woman reading magazines
    Thinking to herself, nobody looks like me
    Oh I've got all these curves, all this nerve
    Why can't I keep a man?
    But baby girl if you love yourself you can

    Can't nobody love somebody that do not love themselves
    You are what you choose to be
    It's not up to no one else
    So be great, be kind
    Don't let them dim your light
    A woman like a sun should always stay bright

    Little boy sitting in the bleachers (ha)
    Staring at, at his dirty sneakers
    Thinking my shoes don't shine
    Money is tight, I would never get a date
    But baby boy that's not what it takes (ooh)
    Young man, always at the center
    Finding ways to make his arms look bigger
    Saying, you see those guys?
    They get all the girls, I just want to be like them
    But baby boy, you're spreading yourself thin

    'Cause can't nobody love somebody that do not love themselves
    You are what you choose to be
    It's not up to no one else
    So be great, be kind
    Don't let them dim your light
    'Cause a man like a sun should always stay bright (ooh)

    Yes you are like the sun so always stay bright Writer/s: Geoffrey Patrick Earley, Kehlani Ashley Parrish
