Shine - The Used

How long was I sleeping?
Did you wake me?
Didn't feel like all that long.
Do I see the morning?
No it can't be
Happened to me.

I've been stuck in the quicksand, more the pavement colours black and white too long
I could black out completely, but I made me, make my way back slowly.

It's my time to shine, do it my way cause it's my time baby
It's my time to burn, start a fire, be the one and only
I said it
I meant it
I never will forget it
Change never happens by itself
It's my time to burn, my time to shine.
Time to make it for myself.

How long was I buried?
Couldn't find me, laid to rest, my heart beats on.
Kept track of the symptoms, could've killed me but you will see
I'm not broken, I could be. Yeah you would be but my heart is much too strong
Never thought it was easy, but I made me, I made me slowly....

It's my time to shine, do it my way cause it's my time baby
It's my time to burn, start a fire, be the one and only
I said it
I meant it
I never will forget it
Change never happens by itself
It's my time to burn, my time to shine.
Time to make it for myself.

Don't be sad, I know you will. It's just the way it has to be.
I can never stay the same (never stay the same)
It's always high or always low, and almost never in between.
There is no one left to blame (no one left to blame)
I can't stay.
I have to change.

It's my time to shine, do it my way. It's my time baby
It's my time to burn, start a fire, be the one and only
I said it
I meant it
I never will forget it
Change never happens by itself
It's my time to burn, my time to shine.
Time to make it for myself.

Make a choice, shine on, shine on
Do it your way, shine on, shine on
Make a choice, shine on, shine on
Do it your way, shine on
