Sharing with us what he knows

Shining eyes are big and blue

And all around him water flows

This world to him is new, this world to him is new

To touch a face

To kiss a smile

New eyes see no race

The essence of a child, the essence...

He's born to shimmer, he's born to shine

He's born to radiate

He's born to live, he's born to love

But we'll teach him not to hate

True love it is a rock

Smoothed over by a storm

No ticking of a clock

Truly measures what that means, truly measures what that means

And this thing they call our time

Heard a brilliant woman say

She said you know it's crazy

How I want to capture mine

I think I love this woman's way,

I think I love this woman's way

Way she shimmers, the way she shines

They way she radiates

The way she lives, the way she loves

The way she never hates

Sometimes I think of all this that can surround me

I know it all as being mine

But she kisses me and wraps herself around me

She gives me love, she gives me time

Yeah... and I find, I'm fine

But time I cannot change

So here's to looking back

You know I drink

A whole bottle of my pride

And I toast to change

To keep these demons off my back, to keep these demons off my back

Cause I want to shimmer, I want to shine

I want to radiate

I want to live, I want to love

I want to try to learn not to hate, try not to hate

We're born to shimmer

We're born to shine

We're born to love, we're born to love

We're born to never hate
