Lyrics

Shine by Kiya Heartwood

I put my hand to my heart
And I sing out loud
For this land of many colors
Many dreams
We have the right
To speak our minds
Whether we’re cruel or kind
Its that kind of free

I believe in second chances
Full voting lines
Mississippi bus riders
Uncrossed picket lines

Shine on me
Shine liberty
Shine on me
Don’t pass away

We’re the hungry and tired
So many left behind
Ellis Island
The Rio Grande
If you need me
I will stand by you
Together we’ll make it through
When trouble comes
Sandbags to the levees
We carry the signs
Our water protectors
Straight allies

Shine on me
Shine liberty
Shine on me
Don’t pass away

We are one
A people of light
Imperfect
Endowed with the right
To make some mistakes

Shine on me
Shine liberty
Shine on me
Shine on me
Shine liberty
Shine on me
Don’t pass away
Don’t pass away
Don’t pass away
Don’t pass away

Love Everybody. Write Great Songs. Raise Hell.
