Time to shine

Amid all the excitement about “Ricki and the Flash” coming out – interviews, contests and promotional buildup to the film – I’ve been working on my newest song, which I finally finished over the weekend. Although it’s not really about RS, it was inspired by him in a sense, and the theme kind of fits with the timing of everything that’s going on, so I thought I’d post it here. (I actually recently started a different blog with non-RS content because I realize that if people are coming to this site, it’s probably as a result of a “Rick Springfield” search but I have other things to write about, too.)

Here it is:

You may be quiet on the outside
But internally
There’s a fire burning
And it’s yearning to break free

You think that nobody’s watching
You feel like nobody cares
Your dreams turned gray along the way
They were swallowed by your fears

Now is your time to shine
Find a way to make your mark
Relinquish the dark
It’s time to shine your light

We all have a limited time on this earth
No one’s sure how long it’ll last
Every day brings a new beginning
Don’t get stranded in the past

Every person has a unique role
Only they can fulfill
So find it, ignite it and share it with the world
If you don’t, nobody else will

Now is your time to shine
Find a way to make your mark
Ignite your spark
It’s time to shine your light

The world is filled with beautiful souls
But there are some who seek to smother the sun
They may darken our days with their evil ways
But we can’t let them think that they’ve won

If a tiny flame can brighten a room
We can all light up the sky
A single blaze
Illuminates for days
Bringing a glow to our lives

Now is your time to shine
Find a way to make your mark
Demolish the dark
It’s time to shine your light
Now is your time to shine
Find a way to make your mark
Emerge from the dark
It’s time to shine your light
It’s time to shine your light.
