Heathers: The Musical Cast - Shine A Light Lyrics




[MS. FLEMING:]
Deep inside of everyone
There's a hot ball of shame
Guilt, regret, anxiety
Fears we dare not name
But, if we show the ugly parts
That we hide away
They turn out to be beautiful
By the light of day!

Why not...

[COMPANY:]
Shine, shine, shine a light!

[MS. FLEMING:]
On your deepest fears!

[COMPANY:]
Let in sunlight now

[MS. FLEMING:]
And your pain will disappear!

[COMPANY:]
Shine, shine, shine

[MS. FLEMING:]
And your scars and your flaws

[COMPANY:]
Will look lovely because you shine!

[MS. FLEMING:]
You shine a light

[COMPANY:]
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light

[STONER CHICK:]
Everyday's a battlefield
When pride's on the line

[PREPPY:]
I attack your weaknesses

[STONER CHICK & MS. FLEMING:]
And pray you don't see mine

[BITTER GEEK:]
But if I share my ugly parts

[BITTER GEEK, GOTH GIRL & MS. FLEMING:]
And you show me yours

[BITTER GEEK & GOTH GIRL:]
Our love can knock our walls down

[BITTER GEEK, GOTH GIRL, STONER CHICK, PREPPY & MS. FLEMING:]
And unlock all our..

[BITTER GEEK, GOTH GIRL, STONER CHICK & PREPPY:]
Doors!

[MS. FLEMING:]
Go on..

[MS. FLEMING & COMPANY:]
Shine, shine, shine a light

[MS. FLEMING:]
On your deepest fears!

[COMPANY:]
Let in sunlight now

[MS. FLEMING:]
And your pain will..

[MS. FLEMING & COMPANY:]
Disappear!

[MS. FLEMING:]
Who wants to share what's in their heart?
No volunteers? Fine, I'll start
My name's Pauline
I live alone
My husband left
My kids are grown
In the 60s love was free
That did not work out well for me
The revolution came and went
Tried to change the world
Barely made a dent
I have struggled with despair
I've joined a cult
Chopped off my hair
I chant, I prayed, but god's not there
So Steve! I'm ending our affair!
And I faked it, every single time
Woo, that feels fan-freaking-tastic
1, 2, take me home kids!

[COMPANY:]
Shine, shine, shine a light

[MS. FLEMING:]
On your deepest fears!

[COMPANY:]
Let in sunlight now

[MS. FLEMING:]
And your pain will disappear!

[COMPANY:]
Shine, shine, shine

[MS. FLEMING:]
And your scars and your flaws

[MS. FLEMING & Company:]
Will look lovely because you shine!

[MS. FLEMING:]
You shine, you shine a liiiiiiiiiiiight

[COMPANY:]
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light

[MS. FLEMING:]
Yeah!

[MS. FLEMING & COMPANY:]
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine, shine, shine a light
Shine a light! YEAH!

  1. weeb trash

    This sounds....funky? idk I like

  2. Garfield

    God I love Fleming

  3. A_little_Evellyn k

    I liked this version too, but to be honest, I liked the original more, 'cause I just can't catch this amount of feelings Fleming is singing in the lyrics in this song. I'm sorry but I just can't.

    MaskuMasked

    I agree. I really like the original better 😊

  4. Fiona Caceres

    Am I the only one who not only prefers but actually LOVES the original version and the way it sounds???

    Pearl Taylor

    Sucktastic :D I agree. I prefer the original and I loved Miss Fleming’s voice 🤷‍♀️

  5. Shuichi Saihara

    the fact that this song is slower threw me off but its so damn FuNkY that i cant be angry

  6. Kelwyn YNWA

    I'm not sure why but I prefer this version to the original. It's the only song that I prefer the UK version of. No idea what the difference is, but this version works for me in a way the other didn't.

  7. AmityRavenclawElf

    So this is good, obviously. @1:00 "unlock all our doors", their accents returned in a big way. I always find it fascinating, which vowels are the most tenacious at reverting, and I find for the English to American or American to English, it always seems to be the nasally "ah" vowel or lack thereof. Like, often an American person will forget to round out some of their "ah"s or a British person will keep theirs too round. But I'm not an expert.

  8. ClaraFreesky

    WOW, I LIKE THIS ONE MUCH BETTER

  9. Little miss Hufflepuff 8000

    Saw this live and honestly this song was absolutely fantastic, especially the dialogue half way through 😏 For those of you who have seen it 😂

  10. MoonlightPotato

    Glad they got rid of the fire-alarm Fleming screech

  11. Oswin Altava

    This was always the one song I just couldn't like on the original, but I love this version!

  12. Mallery

    Miss Fleming soundin like a choir teacher with her proper punctuation and diction. I enjoyed this seeing it live because it seems like they had less of an issue just having fun. Tbh it still doesn't sound like she's getting her frustrations out? Could of used more power. But overall had not many problems with this song.

  13. legolas

    I like Fleming's lower tone. The other version was unbearable for me lmao

  14. Lili Jennings

    I like this waaaaaaaayyy better than the original soundtrack even though it was lowered and slower.

  15. trashmouth

    *so steve.. I'M ENDING OUR AFFAIR*

    Josh G

    trashmouth And I faked it... Every. SINGLE TIME!

  16. Rosescribbs

    did they slow down the tempo and lower the pitch??

  17. Heather Shaye

    Love this omg what a good cast recording

  18. Rosey Dight

    What a bop
