shine lyrics – ugly kid joe

whatever makes you shine
whatever makes you happy
there’s a star in the line
but it’s starting to fade out lately
and i’m missing it baby
and all the places that you’ve been
and all the things that you’ve done
don’t seem to make much difference
don’t seem to make you happy anymore

–chorus–
always searching
always wanting more
why don’t you take it
why don’t you make it
don’t stand there
looking for excuses
cause you won’t get them
no you won’t get them
from me

you got this dead-end job and you hate it
you want to quit the sucker everyday
you wanna tell your boss to kiss your *ss
in a most poetic way
but you don’t know if you can
you’re afraid of what you are
but you could be so bright
you could shine just like a star

–chorus–
always searching
always wanting more
why don’t you take it
why don’t you make it
don’t stand there
looking for excuses
cause you won’t get them
no you won’t get them
from me

whatever makes you shine
whatever makes you happy
whatever makes you glow
that’s the way it should be
whatever makes you shine

–chorus–
always searching
always wanting more
why don’t you take it
why don’t you make it
don’t stand there
looking for excuses
cause you won’t get them
no you won’t get them
from me

whatever makes you shine
whatever makes you happy
that’s the way it should be?
that’s the way it should be?
that’s the way it should be?
