This song is like a mantra for me during this time of revolutionary change. It’s a song of hope and of strength and of culmination. I changed the title from Shine to There’s A Way because of concern for it’s connotation based on an older song by the same title. I think I’ll change it back now, and continue to use the name Shine. With this new knowledge, to me in a positive way, it does somehow connect the tragedy of the past with the promise of a better future.

Key o Emin


I know there’s a way to love
and rise above the things we’ve done
I know we can drop the weight
of fear and hate and change our fate.

Cuz there’s a light inside your eyes
Same as mine And over time
We will find a way to shine beyond the color line.

I know there’s a way to hope
untie the rope that’s tied to choke
I know we can lift the weight
Set things straight it’s not too late

There’s a wound that will not mend
A hurt that’s deep and without end
We must face the facts my friends
Take time to make amends

Bridge: Shine like Hendrix, and Marvin Gaye, Cornell West and MLK, Angela Davis and Beyonce, Tamika Mallory and John Coltrane.

I know we can lift this up
out of despair and breathe new air
I know we can’t ignore
what’s come before not anymore
I know there’s a light inside your eyes
Same as mine and we will find a way to shine.
