Shine The Light

I was watchin’ the news today
So many struggle to live
We’re all in this world together
There’s so much I can give

So lets raise up the curtains
And focus the light
On our brothers and sisters
And do what is right

There are people out there who do more than their share
They reach out a hand, lift up their fellow man
Let the world see their fight, they’re turnin’ wrong into right
Lets all take a cue from the unselfish work that they do
And then let’s shine the light
Shine the light (x 2)

There is so much that we can do
Its not as hard as it seems
Find a way to help others live
Help find someone’s dreams

So lets raise up the curtains
Refocus the light
On the whole human family
And do what is right


It’s not impossible
To change this world
Just start with you and me
Every man woman boy and girl
