Let It Shine – Timi Dakolo

 

VERSE

If I told you how I came this far,
And all the things that I’ve been through.
Need I tell you that I, been to hell;
I’ve seen it all and done it all.
Growing up as a child wasn’t easy,
Had to work twice as hard
I was busy
Grandma was my inspiration
Everyday there was words for situation.
Shoes no laces
Bread no tea
But I kept on coming strong
But that’s when I looked to the mirror
And I told myself these words

CHORUS

This little light o’ mine
I’m gonna let it shine
And I say
This little light o’ mine
Oh yeah
I’m gonna let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine

VERSE

Let me tell you how I got this far
And all the pain I had to bear
We used to sleep five to a bed,
3 at the top, 2 at the bottom
Life’s so unfair
That’s how it is
Hopeless and useless
That’s what they said
Grandma used to tell me;
No room for failure
Every day a new drama
As I sit back and reminisce on the trauma
We used to have
Shoes no laces
Bread no tea
That was how it used to be
Story’s different now
And I’m a witness to a better life
And I am saying

BRIDGE

I know you don’t feel you have a reason to
Shine
You’re giving up because of what you’re going through
Shine
There’s no better way to explain to you
Than to tell you the world has a place for you
Shine
I know you’re a star and you were meant to
Shine
Tell all your neighbors and friends too
Shine
It won’t take long
Listen to this song
Spread love to another
You can’t go wrong

I’m gonna let shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine
