Intro: C Am F G

Verse:
C
Close your tired eyes relax and then
Am
Count from one to ten and open them
F
All these heavy thoughts will try to weigh you
G
Down, but not this time.
C
Way up in the air you're finally free
Am
And you can stay up there right next to me
F
All this gravity will try to pull you
G
Down, but not this time.

Chorus:
C
When the sun goes down and the lights burn out
Am
Then it's time for you to shine brighter than a
F
Shooting Star. So shine no matter
G
Where you are
C
Fill the darkest night with a brilliant light
Am
'Cause it's time for you to shine brighter than a
F
Shooting Star. So shine no matter where you are tonight.
C
Whoa, Whoa
Am
Whoa. Brighter than a
F
Shooting Star. Shine no matter
G
Where you are tonight

Verse:
C
Gaze into my eyes when the fire starts
Am
And fan the flames so hot it melts our hearts
F
All the pouring rain will try and put it
G
Out, but not this time.
C
Let your colors burn and brightly burst
Am
Into a million sparks that all disperse
F
And illuminate a world that'll try to bring you
G
Down, but not this time

Chorus:
C
When the sun goes down and the lights burn out
Am
Then it's time for you to shine brighter than a
F
Shooting Star. So shine no matter
G
Where you are
C
Fill the darkest night with a brilliant light
Am
'Cause it's time for you to shine brighter than a
F
Shooting Star. So shine no matter where you are tonight.
C
Whoa, Whoa
Am
Whoa. Brighter than a
F
Shooting Star. Shine no matter
G
Where you are tonight

Bridge:
Am
a thousand heart beats beat in time
G
It makes this dark planet come alive
Am
So when the lights flicker out tonight
G
You gotta shine

Chorus:
C
When the sun goes down and the lights burn out
Am
Then it's time for you to shine brighter than a
F
Shooting Star. So shine no matter
G
Where you are
C
Fill the darkest night with a brilliant light
Am
'Cause it's time for you to shine brighter than a
F
Shooting Star. So shine no matter where you are tonight.
C
Whoa, Whoa
Am
Whoa. Brighter than a
F
Shooting Star. Shine no matter
G
Where you are tonight
