I've been down on my luck
I've been shadowed with trouble and sorrow
But I ain't givin' up
'Cause I know there is always tomorrow

There are no guarantees
Life is always a hit or a miss
But I truly believe
I won't always be feelin' like this

I'm gonna shine like the sun
When these clouds roll away from my door
When it's all said and done
I won't be at your mercy no more
I will prove my own worth
Heal the damage and hurt that's been done
And when the cryin's all done
Well, I'm gonna shine like the sun

I've been thinkin' here lately
What all I can do to improve
Though I've suffered greatly
I know just what I have to do
I have to move forward
Cut losses, break loose and move on
And i have to swim shoreward
Lest I should drown out here alone

I'm gonna shine like that sun
When these clouds roll away from my door
I won't crawl I can run
I'll be at no one's mercy no more
I'll be swinging on sunbeams
So proud that I finally won
And when the losin's all done
Well, I'm gonna shine like the sun

I'm gonna shine, I'm gonna shine
I'm gonna shine like the sun
When these clouds roll away from my door
And when it's all said and done
I won't be at your mercy no more
I'll be off chasin' rainbows
Rejoicin' and havin' my fun
And when the cryin's all done
Well, I'm gonna shine like the sun

When the cryin's all done
When the tryin's all done
When the lyin's all done
There'll be nothin' but sun
When it's all said and done
Well, I'm gonna shine like the sun
Shine like the sun, shine like the sun
