Track Name: RATHER BE
RATHER BE:

You could lose an arm
you could lose a leg
you could find your way
or you could get ahead
but i would rather be
playing with the two of you
for theres nothing else
that id rather do

But i would rather be
busking on a street with no-body listening
Rather be giving it up when we get it for free
Rather be, giving it up for the people on the TV
Id rather be....free....id rather be free

I hope you get that job
I hope you save that leg
you could get that job
I hope you get ahead.......

But i would rather be
busking on a street with no-body listening
Rather be giving it up when we get it for free now
Rather be, giving it up for the people on the TV
Id rather be....free....id rather be free

HEATHER:

She wore a blue jacket and her silver hair and by the grace of god well she stood there, she stood there.
Hey with a short story of a long past, spoken with a smile from somewhere, from somewhere...

So with her blue jacket and her silver hair and by the grace of god well she stood there, she stood there…hmm she stood there.

She had an Irish papa that she never knew, a German husband and they raised quite a few, they had a brew...

She had a bunch of great kids but they went away, not by choice they were taken from her one day...stolen away...

So with her blue jacket and her silver hair and by the grace of god well she stood there, she stood there...
…hmmm…she stood there…

She wore a blue jacket and her silver hair and by the grace of god well she stood there, she stood there...

SHINE:

He say’s wait, I think I’m ageing, don’t feel like changing, not any more no no...
Not right now, not just yet..
And he says time, it’s like a window, it’s like a mirror that you leave behind you know I, I’m
not ready yet.....

CHORUS 1:

You can Shine...shine a person on the inside but you cannot, you cannot polish every stone..
And you can Shine...shine a person on the outside but you cannot, you cannot polish everything…….….you can’t polish every stone

Intro Progression: 1 Time

G/D/Em7/Asus*/C-down to B-/D

VERSE 2:
G/D/Em7/Asus/C-down to B-/D

And so you look into the mirror, and you are more now than what you see so much more, than just your history...
You are growing you are glowing, you are stronger than you feel, and maybe now, maybe
now’s your time to shine....

CHORUS 2:

You can Shine...shine a person on the inside but you cannot, you cannot polish every stone
And you can Shine...shine a person on the outside but you cannot, you cannot polish everything…….….you can’t polish every stone…

SOLO:
Em7/G/D walk down..(* hold last time *)

CHORUS 3:
C/G/D/Em7/D C/G/D....

And you can Shine...shine a person on the inside but you cannot, you cannot polish every stone
And you can Shine...shine a person on the outside but you cannot, you cannot polish everything……….you can’t polish every stone...
