Baby wake up your harder days,
and let some light break through.
You have been down with older ways,
you're dying to begin.
Your heart now speaks of revolution,
but your eyes never leave the ground.
You're hard to talk to child,
the hardest yet I've found.
maybe now your heart can stay.
You're giving up, you've had enough,
you're digging for daddy's gun.
Children run out the door to play
in daffodils and sun.
You say "who need them anyway"
and I just can't say enough.
Now I'm praying for revolution rising up in your heart,
but you say you never knew me shut the shades and cry in the dark.
Now Shine on,
you will shine like the brightest star
mount up with wings as eagles and shine on.
