  • How long was I sleeping? did you wake me? didn't feel like all that long.
    Do I see the morning? no it can't be happen to me.

    I've been stuck in the quicksand, more the pavement colours black and white too long
    I could black out completely, but I made me, make my way back slowly.

    It's my time to shine, do it my way cuz it's my time baby
    It's my time to burn, start a fire, be the one and only
    I said it
    I meant it
    I never will forget it
    Change never happens by itself
    It's my time to burn, my time to shine.
    Time to make it for myself.

    How long was I buried? couldn't find me, laid to rest, my heart beats on.
    Kept track of the symptoms, could've killed me but you will see
    I'm not broken, I could be. yeah you would be but my heart is much too strong
    Never thought it was easy, but I made me, I made me slowly

    It's my time to shine, do it my way cuz it's my time baby
    It's my time to burn, start a fire, be the one and only
    I said it
    I meant it
    I never will forget it
    Change never happens by itself
    It's my time to burn, my time to shine.
    Time to make it for myself.

    Don't be sad, I know you well. it's just the way it has to be.
    I could never stay the same.
    It's always high, always low, and almost never in between.
    There is no one left to blame.
    I can't stay.
    I have to change.

    It's my time to shine, do it my way. it's my time baby
    It's my time to burn, start a fire, be the one and only
    I said it
    I meant it
    I never will forget it
    Change never happens by itself
    It's my time to burn, my time to shine.
    Time to make it for myself.

    Make a choice, shut up shut up.
    Do it your way, shut up shut up. Writer/s: DANIEL WHITESIDES, EVAN TAUBENFELD, JEPH HOWARD, QUINN ALLMAN, ROBERT MCCRACKEN
