I sat by my window tonight
And I saw a lone star
Twinkling bravely against the sky.
And I felt it winked at me
As if to say,
?If I can shine on like this,
Why can?t you, why won?t you??
I thought of you
What you?ve been through
The dreams you start to spin
And the endless ?could?ve-beens?.
I saw a stream that would go on
While Frisbees fly without wings
And I?m reminded of you?
Said to myself:
?Why can?t you, why won?t you??
Sure, success is hard-earned
Not even stars get out so sparkling
In just one night alone
After it was born.
You start again? and go on
Behind hardwork is a secret
Consistency, is God in it?
Success, like stars, bring brilliance
In God?s perfect chance
I thought of you (who is me),
And said to myself (who is you)?
?Why can?t you? why won?t you??
