Lyrics:
♬Let’s go out and do something we’d never do
‘Cause I feel like I can do anything
My head is spinning and my feet off the ground
When I can’t stop dancing like no one’s around
And yeah, I think we were born to shine
‘Cause the stars are dull when they’re compared to you and I
And if people don’t like it they can close their eyes

You and me
Me and you
We will shine
‘Cause the stars are dull when they’re compared to you and I
And if people don’t like it they can close their eyes
Cause’ we’re not the same and we don’t have to try
We’re brighter than fireflies, we’re gonna light the sky

Ooh, oh, oh
Ooh, oh, oh oh
Ooh, oh, oh
Ooh, oh, oh oh
Light the sky♬
