Heathers- The Musical - Shine a Light (lyrics)

Lyrics

[PAULINE FLEMING]
Deep inside of everyone there's a hot ball of shame
Guilt, regret, anxiety
Fears we dare not name
But, if we show the ugly parts that we hide away
They turn out to be beautiful by the light of day
Why not

[COMPANY]
Shine, shine, shine a light

[PAULINE FLEMING]
On your deepest fears

[COMPANY]
Let in sunlight now

[PAULINE FLEMING]
And your pain will disappear

[COMPANY]
Shine, shine, shine

[PAULINE FLEMING]
And your scars and your flaws

[COMPANY]
Will look lovely because you shine

[PAULINE FLEMING]
You shine a light

[COMPANY]
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light

[STONER CHICK]
Everyday's a battlefield when pride's on the line

[PREPPY STUD]
I attack your weaknesses and

[NEW WAVE GIRL & PREPPY STUD]
Pray you don't see mine

[BELEAGUERED GEEK]
But if I share my ugly parts

[NEW WAVE GIRL, BELEAGUERED GEEK, PAULINE FLEMING]
And you show me yours
Our love can knock our walls down and unlock all our doors

[PAULINE FLEMING]
Go on!

[COMPANY]
Shine, shine, shine a light

[PAULINE FLEMING]
On your deepest fears

[COMPANY]
Let in sunlight now

[PAULINE FLEMING]
And your pain will

[COMPANY]
Disappear!

[PAULINE FLEMING]
Who wants to share what's in their heart?
No volunteers?
Fine, I'll start
My name's Pauline
I live alone
My husband left
My kids are grown

In the 60's love was free
That did not work out well for me
The revolution came and went
Tried to change the world
Barely made a dent

I have struggled with despair
I've joined a cult
Chopped off my hair
I chant, I prayed, but God's not there
So Steve!
I'm ending our affair!
And I faked it
Every, single time

Woo!
It feels fan-freaking-tastic!
1, 2, take me home kids!

[COMPANY]
Shine, shine, shine a light

[PAULINE FLEMING]
On your deepest fears!

[COMPANY]
Let in sunlight now

[PAULINE FLEMING]
And your pain will disappear!

[COMPANY]
Shine, shine, shine

[PAULINE FLEMING]
And your scars and your flaws

[COMPANY]
Will look lovely because you shine
Ahh, ahh, ahh

[PAULINE FLEMING]
You shine
You shine a light!

[COMPANY]
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine a light

[PAULINE FLEMING]
Yeah!
