I've been tryin' to make a living, but I haven't got a life
Chasing dreams with tunnel vision, I'm running out of time
Somewhere I lost what I've been missing
I look but never find
I never find

Stopped long enough to pray for wisdom
And I waited for an answer
Opened up my heart to listen
What is it I'm here for
And in the noise of all my questions
I finally heard a whisper
A still, small whisper

Don't waste your life
Wishing, hoping, waiting for a better day
You know that would be a shame
Shine, shine your light
Bigger, brighter, for the whole world to see
Play your part in history
Don't waste your life

So I'm making this my mission
I've made up my mind
Even I can make a difference
One story at a time
When I forget what I've been given
I can always find
A lesson in these lines

Don't waste your life
Wishing, hoping, waiting for a better day
It would be a crying shame
Shine, shine your light
Bigger, brighter, for the whole world to see
Play your part in history
Don't waste your life
Don't waste your life

In every choice that you make and every chance that you take
Don't waste your life
In every prayer that you pray and every "I love you" that you say
Don't waste your life
And when you find yourself afraid, just repeat this simple phrase

Don't waste your life
Wishing, hoping, waiting for a better day
Trust me, that would be a shame
Shine, shine your light
Bigger, brighter, for the whole world to see
Play your part in history
Don't waste your life
Don't waste your life
