[VERSE 1]

AM7                  Bm7

As I lay down, upon the grass,

AM7                        Bm7

To watch the stars appear,

AM7                         Bm7

The first I saw, star light, star bright,

AM7                      Bm7          E

For wishing on, it seemed so clear.

 

[VERSE 2]

AM7                      Bm7          E

I went to wish, but then another,

AM7                      Bm7              E

Peeked out from the darkening sky.

AM7                 Bm7       E

A dozen stars, glowing dimly,

AM7                                  Bm7     E

Then hundreds, thousands shining by.

 

[VERSE 3]

D                                A                F#m

As darkness fell, they shone more brightly,

Bm7        E7       Asus2              A

Until the first, I lost completely.

D                    E             A         F#m

That’s when I knew, up in the heavens,

Bm7                                        D           E

Each star was ONE among the millions.

 

[CHORUS]

A                                   D           A

So, let your light shine, shine on through,

F#m                     D             E

No-one is special quite like you.

A             A/C#          D            A

Let your light shine, shine on through,

Bm7                     Esus       A

No-one’s special quite like you.

  

[VERSE 4]

AM7                            Bm7  E

As darkness crept . . . over me,

AM7               Bm7             E

I nodded off; this was my dream,

AM7                    Bm7                  E

I became a star, among the stars

AM7                        Bm7        E

And saw what only stars can see.

 

[INSTRUMENTAL RIFF] [STRINGS UP]

 

[VERSE 5]

AM7                       Bm             E

All earth’s people, shone with light,

AM7                    Bm      E

Each one special, on this night,

AM7                       Bm7          E

Each one different, each unique,

AM7                          Bm7              E

Then I awoke, these words to speak.

 

[STRINGS AND HORNS UP]

 [VERSE 6]

D                           A       F#m

If I am special . . . so are you,

Bm7          E                   Asus2       A

Find your bliss . . .  what YOU can do.

D            E          A       F#m

Short or tall . . . big or small,

Bm7                                  D E F#

It doesn’t matter much at all.



[INSTRUMENTAL RIFF TO KEY OF B]

[CHORUS]

B                                      E           B

Just, Let your light shine, shine on through,

G#m                     E             F#

No-one is special quite like you.

B            B/D#           E           B

Let your light shine, shine on through

C#m7                           F#sus       B

No-one’s special quite like you.

 

[INSTRUMENTAL RIFF TO KEY of C#]

 [REPEAT CHORUS]                                                              

C#                            F#          C#

Let your light shine, shine on through,

A#m                     F#           G#

No-one is special quite like you.

C#          C#/F           F#          C#

Let your light shine, shine on through,

                     D#m                  G#sus       C#

[CRESCENDO] No-one’s special quite like YOU.

F#            C#            F#            C#            F#            C#

[Fade Out] Like you ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
