And on the day that she was born
The angels came with bitter disappointment
A lost lamb in the lion's den
To be vicarious was her anointment
And sister sweet and daddy dear
Had that kind of spark that makes you weary
And so she sat in 'I love you land'
And her hopes grew small and her optimism bleary.

'Cause they all said "Wow"
They all said "What a shame"
"You're so different... Who's to blame?"
And she said:

"Why don't you let me just
Shine my own way?
Why don't you let me just
Shine my own damn way?
Just let me shine."

And when she grew, she ran away
Far from shadowlands and suffocation
To normal life and normal friends
And she never ever spoke
About her shiny fine relations
Just in case.

They all said "Wow"
They all said "What a shame"
"You're so different... Who's to blame?"
And she said:

"Why don't you let me just
Shine my own way?
Why don't you let me just
Shine my own damn way?
Just let me shine."
