This excerpt from 'Shine-On' is also the lyrics for just one of the songs on a New CD coming out very soon!


All introductions to the lyrics/poetry of Betty Shine in 'Shine On', are written by her daughter, Janet Shine:


Ambition

Ambition is a word we all use in our vocabulary - but do we fully understand the meaning? A desire to advance ourselves, to achieve our ultimate goal - but along with ambition we can build a barrier around ourselves, not being able to see when perhaps we are treading on someone else's toes for our own advancement. Opportunities are there for us all, but not at the price of losing self respect. By all means have ambition, but know the boundaries and stick to them. You will be thankful in the end.

'Ambition' - Lyrics By Betty Shine

                  There's a river running through my mind
                     That pays no heed to tides or time
                       And when it meets an estuary
                             It flows into the sea.
                       I never know from day to day
                            Where it's taking me.
 
                            I was ripe, I'd arrived,
                     I never cared when others cried.
                         Ambition was a god to me,
                            I designed my destiny.
                        How wrong can one man be?
 
                   I've lived my life on borrowed time,
                      I couldn't wait to stand in line,
                      Enjoy the well-earned limelight -
                           A kind of shallow life.
                           Now I can clearly see
                        It's pay back time for me.
 
                          I was ripe, I'd arrived,
                    I never cared when others cried.
                       Ambition was a god to me,
                           I designed my destiny.
                       How wrong can one man be?
 
                   When I couldn't stop the course
                    I knew I had to find the source,
                           And it led back to me.
                        Only I could stop the flow,
                         So now I've finally let go
                        To stem the tides of time.
 
                          I was ripe, I'd arrived,
                   I never cared when others cried.
                        Ambition was a god to me,
                          I designed my destiny.
                       How wrong can one man be
                      When I designed my destiny?
