THE WORLD SHINES
By Olivia Gao

Ambrosia, the Thirteen Treasures
The Golden Fleece, the Griffin’s feathers
The glass slipper and the prince
The nightingale’s song, the kiss

Dreams may flicker but never fade
Sleeping silently in the heart but never dying away
But it’s time to wake up
And let our dreams be heard
So let’s raise our voices
And shout out these words:

Sing to the flickering stars
Break through the bars
That separates us from the impossible
The dreams that seemed so distant, so far
Will be within our reach, our grasp
All we have to do is reach
Reach and reality will be in our hands

The world is hearing our call
Open your eyes and see
The light of the world upon you and me
As we walk down this road together
Our paths intertwining forever
We’ll soar high, high above the world
I’m not afraid ‘cause you’re by my side
Let’s go together and change our lives

The road may be long, the journey harrowing
But all it takes is one step forward
And one more
And one more
And one more and more and more
Til we reach the end of the rainbow
Greeted by that pot of gold
Glittering and gleaming as ancient tales told

Destined for greatness
One step at a time is too slow
We’re restless
We’ll dance forward and take great leaps
As the road grows brighter before our feet
We’re soaring
We’re soaring high
High above the world

So let’s sing our songs to the flickering stars
Break through the bars
That separates us from the impossible
The dreams that seemed so distant, so far
Will be within our reach, our grasp
All we have to do is reach
Reach and reality will be in our hands

I’m not afraid ‘cause you’re by my side
Let’s go together and change our lives

Dreams used to seem so far away
Not anymore
Raise your voice
Sing your song
Be heard and
Break through the flickering stars
