Lyrics[]

Yeah, ooh

When you wish upon a star
Your dreams will take you very far
But when you wish upon a dream
Life ain't always what it seems, oh yeah
What you see so nice so clear, yeah
In the sky so very dear, oh yeah

You're a shining star
No matter who you are
Shining bright to see
What you could truly be, what you could truly be

Shining star coming into view
Shine its watchful light on you
Give you strength to carry on, yeah
Make your body big and strong, oh yeah

Born a man-child of the sun, yeah
Saw my work had just begun, yeah
Found I had to stand alone, yeah
Well, bless it now I've got my own, oh yeah, oh yeah

So, if you find yourself in need
Why don't you listen to these words of heed?
Be a giant grain of sand
Words of wisdom, yes, I can

You're a shining star
No matter who you are
Shining bright to see
What you could truly be

You're a shining star
No matter who you are
Shining bright to see
What you could truly be

You're a shining star
No matter who you are
Shining bright to see
What you could truly be

Shining star for you to see
What your life can truly be
Shining star for you to see
What your life can truly be
Shining star for you to see
What your life can truly be
Shining star for you to see
What your life can truly be
