Nothin' Grows In Shadows

Hey you kids, bullying the kids down at your school
One of these days you're gonna grow up, be ashamed
Who gave you the right to decide who is and who ain't cool
Who could sit at your table and be on your team and play your games

[Chorus]
Let 'em shine, shine like a diamond
Give 'em time and you'll find they're a snow-covered rose
God's light shines for everybody
So get outta His way
Nothin' grows in shadows

Hey fathers, screamin' at your kids from the bleachers
Saying "Quit actin' like a sissy, suck it up and win"
Maybe you oughta stop and think about what you're teaching
Yeah you talk about a loser, I don't think it's them

[Chorus]
Let 'em shine, shine like a diamond
Give 'em time and you'll find they're a snow-covered rose
God's light shines for everybody
So get outta His way
Nothin' grows in shadows

Well I ain't sayin' I ain't been a shadow myself
A dark cloud that rained on somebody else
Well I learned a lesson that I need to tell
The doctor that saved my momma's life
Helped beat her cancer, made sure she got well
Was a kid I went to school with all my life
Man I used to give him hell

[Chorus]
Let 'em shine, shine like a diamond
Give 'em time and you'll find they're a snow-covered rose
God's light shines for everybody
So get outta His way
Nothin' grows in shadows

Oh get outta His way
Nothin' grows in shadows
