Shining Star
Yeah, hey, hey

When you wish upon a star
Your dreams will take you very far, yeah
But when you wish upon a dream
Life ain't always what it seems, oh yeah

What you see on nights so clear, hey
In the sky so very dear, yeah?

You're a shining star
No matter who you are
Shining bright to see
What you could truly be
What you could truly be

Shining star come into view
To shine its watchful light on you, yeah
Give you strength to carry on, yeah
Yeah, make your body big and strong, yeah

Born a man-child of the sun, yeah
Yeah, saw my work had just begun
Yeah, found I had to stand alone, yeah
Bless it now, I've got my own
Oh yeah, oh yeah

So, if you find yourself in need
Why don't you listen to these words of heed
Be a giant or grain of sand
Words of wisdom, yes I can

You're a shining star
No matter who you are
Shining bright to see
What you could truly be

You're a shining star
No matter who you are
Shining bright to see
What you could truly be

You're a shining star
No matter who you are
Shining bright to see
What you could truly be

Shining star for you to see
What your life can truly be
Shining star for you to see
What your life can truly be
Shining star for you to see
What your life can truly be
