Lyrics to "Shine" by Jan Krist

She buries the problems
but they grow and bloom again
No one need see them
She will deftly pretend
Playing her high cards
Best foot forward every time
For who will love her
if she does not shine?

Hopelessness dogs her
but she will not give in
She will reason fear away again
A full and leaky vessel
She hides the cracks behind
For who will love her
if she does not shine?

She tries to pull herself
from difficult requests
Works to be satisfied
with just doing her best
'Til someone doubts her courage
and she struggles with resign
For who will love her
if she does not shine?

She tries to pull herself
from rejection's debris
And the more she pulls
the less she seems to be free
When did this all begin?
Was there one point in time?
And who will love her
if she does not shine?

Who will love her? Shining
Who will love her? Shining
Who will love her
if she does not shine?
