Carrio Xanders – Can’t Stop The Shine Lyrics

[Intro]
Not sorry
No, no don’t judge me

[Verse 1]
Would rather fall in love than be in the streets and on the run
Life got me in a one on one
But we made it, momma we made it
I just really wanna know why me
You put me through the fire just to refine me
Came out shining like a diamond
West Africa is where you find me
This is not a party, it’s a carnival
It’s a celebration, it’s the maddest ting
Remember the name like I’m Socrates
But the pain hits differеnt when you’re the son of a king
Man I know what it’s likе to rise up from the grave
Metaphorically, thunder struck out on my cave
Now I’m out, the world better prepare for my greatness
I waited for so long, now don’t test my patience

[Chorus]
You don’t know my story, you cannot stop my shine
You may try to knock me, but I will still turn out fine
If you don’t know me, then don’t judge me
Try to stop my shine, but I’ll still get what’s mine
[Verse 2]
When I reminisce, I hear him telling me, “forget it, G”
How do you show penitence for the misery of your enemies, now tell me please

Well, the rundown was a come up
No distractions, never caught up
When you’re a winner, you’re a winner
And you say “pretty damn sure”, never say “sort of”
They ask me, well the story was a wild one
I see them pagans waiting for an outcome
But I went from a zero to a thousand
I swam through the oceans, I crossed many mountains
Hits different when you’re a son of a Reverend
Like there was never a time when I was panicking
I made my peace knowing it’s nothing but a predicate
To the biggest things I’m about to experience

[Chorus]
You don’t know my story, you cannot stop my shine
You may try to knock me, but I will still turn out fine
If you don’t know me, then don’t judge me
Try to stop my shine, but I’ll still get what’s mine
You don’t know my story, you cannot stop my shine
You may try to knock me, but I will still turn out fine
If you don’t know me, then don’t judge me
Try to stop my shine, but I’ll still get what’s mine
