Lyrics Christian Tj Prodigy - Shine

Shout out to iinfynite
Yeah
It's Prodigy
This is my life story
But it's not written down, and it's not on paper
It's expressed through my music
So let's do this

Yo, turn the speakers up, this is something you wanna hear
It's been troubling my heart every day, week, year, man
Living in a town that's supposed to be home
Where I sat in my tree fort, watching deer roam, yeah
Me and papa built that, but that was yesterday
And nothing been the same since he's gone away
And I wish he coulda been here to see me on tour
But I guess all the angels just wanted him more
Even though he's past its like the days never did
Same white house, same town, same kid
Same yellow school bus, same red school
Where you walk through the doors, and you see the golden rule In big black letters, hey it's a good thought

But actions speak louder is what I've been taught
And trust me when I say I heard the fists loud and clear
So I think it's bout time for me to get outta here
It's like you build these dreams just so they can tear you down
Well I'm sick of being stepped on, pushed to the ground
Told im never gonna make it, well you can watch and see
As my rhymes and my message will change the industry
Keep bringing me down, that won't get you any higher
My dreams are a rocket, and I'm a frequent flyer
Well I'm walking from the hate, and I'll walk to the moon
So you can tell MJ, I'll be seeing him soon

It's time, for me, to shine
Let go, now take back what's mine
I'm standing tall, and I'm, gonna shine
Shine shine shine shine
So watch me shine

Thinking back now on those past days and nights
Looking back at my family, I'd say we did alright
Single mom and two kids tryna make it on their own
If my dad ever saw me he'd say "look how much you've grown"
Yeah dad I've grown, growin' up to be a man
Thought I couldn't do without you but I learned that I can
'Cause what kinda man doesn't pick up the phone?
Ask his son how he's been since he was six years old
Every choice that you made, you've made it for yourself
Never once put me first over anybody else
But that's okay dad, 'cause I'm doing just fine
While you wishin' you could turn back the hands of time
Always doing what you wanted, but never with me
I bet you didn't even know that my nickname was T
Well maybe someday you'll pick up the phone
But I'll be sending you to voicemail cause now, no one's home

It's time, for me, to shine
Let go, now take back what's mine
I'm standing tall, and I'm, gonna shine
Shine shine shine shine
So watch me shine

Ask me how I'm doing, man I'm doing just fine
'Cause I'm taking all these dreams and I'm gonna make 'em mine
So, shout out to anyone who's ever had a dream
Keep pushing through the fight no matter how hard it seems
And to all the haters, always thought you were cool
While you were picking on others and were always so cruel
Excluded me and shoved me, made me feel small
Well take a look now haters, I'm standing tall
I'm living my dreams and there's nothing you can do
You can never understand me 'till you walk in my shoes
You don't know someone's story just because you know their name
Their inside and outside may not be the same
So, shout out to the man who never really was a dad
I hope that you know you lost the best thing you had
So watch me as I backflip, it's one of a kind
'Cause I'm turning my back and I'm leaving you behind yeah!

It's time, for me, to shine
Let go, now take back what's mine
I'm standing tall, and I'm, gonna shine
Shine shine shine shine
So watch me shine

It's time, for me, to shine
Let go,now take back what's mine
I'm standing tall, and I'm, gonna shine
Shine shine shine shine
So watch me shine

It's time, for me, to shine
Let go, now take back what's mine
I'm moving on, and I'm, gonna shine
Shine shine shine shine
So watch me shine
