Let You Shine
Lyrics by Jack Charles

You are not a girl. You’re not a boy.
You’re not a pearl. You are not a toy.
You’re not the chemistry or the therapy.
You’re not unable to join the harmony.
You’re not your father. You’re not your mama.
You are a note in the chord of family karma.
You’re not a brand, a gland or prey.
You are a star in every way.

Don’t let circumstance hold you in its trance.
Don’t let your light be shaded by chance.
From this day on hold on to the notion to let you shine.

You are not alone. You precious freak.
You’re not a drone. Although you’re sleek.
You’re not a breakdown or your hometown.
You’re not the loon shooting up the playground.
You’re not your face. And you’re not your place.
You’re not the mouse trampled in the rat race.
You are what’s left when you set everything astray.
You are a star in every way.

Don’t let circumstance hold you in its trance.
Don’t let your light be shaded by chance.
From this day on hold on to the notion to let you shine.

Anything — absolutely everything comes from stars.
So if you’re anything—a diamond ring, a scar,
Then you are something riding on a beam of light come from afar.

So don’t let circumstance hold you in its trance.
Don’t let your light be shaded by chance.
From this day on hold on to the notion to let you shine!
Let you shine. Let you shine. Let you shine.
