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

"Friends In Low Places" by Garth Brooks was written by two Nashville songwriters after a meal in a local restaurant. One of them forgot his money, but said not to worry, "I have friends in low places. I know the cook."
The lyrics for Lesley Gore's "It's My Party" were based on actual events relating to his daughter Judy's sweet 16 party. The teenager threw a tantrum and burst into tears when her mum and dad insisted that her grandparents had to be invited.
