  C/G/D/Em   C/G/D  C/G/D/Em  C/G/D

Em D  G
Sharing with us what he knows
Em D  G
shining eyes are big and blue
Em D  C
and all around him water flows
Am
this world to him is new
C
this world to him is new

to touch a face
to kiss a smile
new eyes see no race
the essence of a child
the essence

C   G
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

true love it is a rock
smoothed over by the stream
and no ticking of the clock
truly measures what that means
truly measures what that means

and this thing we call our time
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

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 of this that can surround me
I know it all as being mine
but she kisses me and wraps herself around me
she gives me love, she gives me time
and I feel fine

hey, yeah, hey hey yeah
I feel fine

but time I cannot change
so here's to looking back
you know I drink a whole bottle of my pride
and I toast to change
to keep these demons off my back
just get these demons off my back

cause I want to shimmer, I want to shine
I want to radiate
I want to live, I want to love
I want to try to learn not to hat
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
