  • Sharing with us what he knows
    Shining eyes are big and blue
    And all around him water flows
    This world to him is new
    This world to him is new

    To touch a face
    To kiss a smile
    New eyes see no race
    The essence of a child
    The essence

    He's born to shimmer, he's born to shine
    He's born to radiate
    He's born to live, he's born to love
    But we'll teach him not to hate
    True love it is a rock

    Smoothed over by a stream
    No ticking of a clock
    Truly measures what that means
    Truly measures what that means
    And this thing they call our time

    Heard a brilliant woman say
    She said you know it's crazy
    How I want to try to capture mine
    I think I love this woman's way
    I think I love this woman's way she shimmers, the way she shines

    The way she radiates
    The way she lives, the way she loves
    The way she never hates
    Sometimes I think of all of this that can surround me
    I know it all as being mine

    But she kisses me and wraps herself around me
    She gives me love, she gives me time
    And I feel fine I feel fine
    But time I cannot change
    So here's to looking back

    You know I drink a whole bottle of my pride
    And I toast to change to keep these demons off my back
    Just get these demons off my back
    'Cause I want to shimmer, I want to shine
    I want to radiate

    I want to live, I want to love
    I want to try to learn not to hate
    Try not to hate

    We're born to shimmer, we're born to shine
    We're born to radiate
    We're born to live, we're born to love
    We're born to never hate Writer/s: SHAWN MULLINS
