NGĀ WHAKAMĀRAMA (About The Song)

Shine is a song that celebrates children.

It is a father’s message to his child, encouraging her to dream big and pursue any path her heart desires.

This song is for “all the kids in the world” and reminds them that they can achieve whatever they set their minds to, so long as they have the support and love of their parents and wider family.

Shine has a strong, comfortable feel that is clear and joyful, which we believe represents us truthfully.

It feels right that this song should be our first voice in the world.

lyrics

NGĀ KUPU WAIATA (Lyrics) 

You came to this world and opened my eyes 
I knew from the start you were gonna be fine, so fine 
Yes so fine 
You can do whatever the choice is yours 
When you succeed I’ll be there with applause my love 
My darling love 

Coz my baby can shine Shine shine 
My baby can shine And giving it time 
Time time 
Everything will be alright 

That sugary high keeps them running around 
And smiling faces such a joy to be found 
I know it’ll be alright 
But if you should fall I’ll pick you right back up 
Hold you closer with all of my love 
My shining light 

Coz my baby can shine Shine shine 
And giving it time Time time 
Everthing will be alright 
Coz the future is yet to be known 
The key to the worlds all yours just let yourself shine 

Chorus out
