“Shine”

and affected by the tragic shooting at
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School

“Shine”

Music by: Andrea Peña
Lyrics by: Sawyer Garrity

You, You threw my city away
You tore down the walls
and opened up all the gates

And you, you ruined this town
you burned all the bridges
and you slowly let us drown

But you’re not gonna knock us down
We’ll get back up again
You may have hurt us
but I promise we are stronger and
We’re not gonna let you win
We’re putting up a fight
You may have brought the dark
but together we will shine the light

and woah oh we will be something special
woah oh we’re gonna shine

We, we’re gonna stand tall
gonna lift up our voices
so we never ever fall

We’re done with all your little games
Tired of hearing that
we’re too young to ever make a change

Cause you’re not gonna knock us down
We’ll get back up again
You may have hurt us
but I promise we are stronger and
We’re not gonna let you win
We’re putting up a fight
You may have brought the dark
but together we will shine the light

We can hug a little tighter
We can love a little more
Laugh a little harder
We can stand up and roar
If we all come together
We will be alright
Stand up for one another
And we’ll never give up the fight

 

(There is a break in the song for spoken word.

• We refuse to not be heard by those who will not listen
• Reach out to your congressmen
• Mail, call and tweet
• Be the voice for those who don’t have one
• The smallest of words can make the biggest difference
• Together we have the power to change the world around us
• We have the right to feel safe in our own schools
• The time for change is now!

you’re not gonna knock us down
We’ll get back up again
You may have hurt us
but I promise we are stronger and
We’re not gonna let you win
We’re putting up a fight
You may have brought the dark
but together we will shine the light

you’re not gonna knock us down
We’ll get back up again
You may have hurt us
but I promise we are stronger and
We’re not gonna let you win
We’re putting up a fight
You may have brought the dark
but together we will shine the light

and woah oh we will be something special
woah oh will shine
