Shawn Mullins - Shimmer Right lyrics

Sharing with us what he knows
His 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
And 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 how to hate

And true love it is a rock
Smoothed over by a stream
And no tickin of a clock
Truly measures what that means
Truly measures what that means

And this thing called our time
I heard a brilliant woman say
She said "You know it's crazy
How I want to try to capture mine"
I think I love this woman's way
I think I love this woman's

The way she shimmers
The way she shines
The 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 she wraps herself around me
She gives me love
She gives me time yea yea
And I, I feel fine
Hey hey I feel fine

But time I cannot change
So here's to looking back
You know I'd drink a whole bottle
Of my pride and I'd toast to change
To keep these demons off my back
Just get these demons off my back

Cause I
I want to shimmer
I want to shine
I want to radiate
I want to live
I want to love
I want to try and learn how not to hate
Try not to hate

We're born to shimmer
We're born to shine
We're born to radiate
We're born to live
We're born to love
We're born to never hate
