The Roots - Shine Lyrics

(with John Legend)





[23 seconds of instrumental to open]



[John Legend]

They wait to plead their case, unknown cast aside

I love to see their face, can we spare the lie?

Are we afraid to see them, prisoners of history

These beautiful minds, trapped inside, bring them back to life

Let 'em shine, let 'em shine on

Let 'em shine, let 'em shine on



Ooooooohhhhhhhhhh

Aowwwww



So dark when I see sparks, if we don't snuff 'em out

We've gotta let 'em flame, let 'em speak their name

Let 'em reach up to the clouds

Can't eat if we don't feed 'em, can't read if we don't teach 'em

There's no light if we just hide 'em

Don't just let 'em die

Let 'em shine (yeah yeah yeah) let 'em shine on

Let 'em shine (yeah yeah yeah) let 'em shine on

Oh let 'em shine on (yeah yeah yeah) let 'em shine on

Let 'em shine on (yeah yeah yeah) let 'em shine, on



Ohhhhh sparks flicker, in the distance

Lonely out in space

They sing out, but we're not listening

Cause we don't see their face

We can't let 'em die we can't, make 'em hide

All the little miracles that live inside

Let 'em shine, ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh



Let 'em shine (yeah yeah yeah) let 'em shine on

Let 'em live (yeah yeah yeah) let 'em shine on

Let 'em be loved (yeah yeah yeah) let 'em shine on

Let 'em growwww (yeah yeah yeah) let 'em shine, on

C'mon let 'em love (yeah yeah yeah) hey

C'mon let 'em love (yeah yeah yeah) hey hey hey yeah

C'mon let 'em love (yeah yeah yeah) YEAH-HA-HEAH

C'mon, YEAH-HA-HEAH-HA-HEAHH



Hold 'em close, let 'em know

That they'll get through the night

Ordinary people could, be a hero

Don't put out the light!



Let 'em shine, let 'em shine on [2X]

Yeah

Yeayyyyeahhh

Let 'em shine on
