Editor’s note: I have updated this post to include the name of the group behind the song and where you can find out more about them. Please see below.

Here are three German students exemplifying what it means to SHINE as they surprise a homeless man. Their act of kindness is very moving, but their song is what really hugs my heart.

I am normally guilty of rushing and not looking around. This morning all the kids were at camp and I was out running errands and having very zen time of it all and noticed that I was more aware of those around me. Because I was aware, I gave an elderly person my parking stub that still had 45 minutes left on it. I’m certainly not changing the world by doing that, but someone did that for me a few weeks ago and I felt like it was really thoughtful and I wanted to pay it forward.

So if you were looking for something to restore your faith in humanity and brighten your day, then have a look.  My promise to myself and the world around me, less rushing, more looking.

Some of the song lyrics from the video:

Another Chance by bejapy e.V.

Your headphones on like a shield to the silence
But what would be if you had taken a look?

Another chance to change is gone.
There will be new ones but first you have to find them.

This is the day, don’t look away, from the wings of humanity today.
This is life, life, life.
Life is too short to waste a chance.

    Hi Sarah,

    Did you find these lyrics typed out somewhere, or did you just figure them out by listening? I’d really like to learn the full lyrics to this song but can’t find them anywhere.

      Hi Michelle, I just figured them out by listening to it. They may not be perfect, but I think they’re pretty close. Great song though isn’t it? Have a great day, Sarah

    I wish this song was available – by these three young people. I found where someone else listened over and over and seems to have gotten the words pretty close:

    Re: Another Chance –

    Some usual day
    Everything seems okay
    Lights in the move a perfect forward
    Your headphones are like shields in a silence
    Why would be if you would take it a look

    Woaaahhhh another chance to change a song
    There will be new once took first youll have to find them
    This is the way
    To show look away
    From the wings of humanity today
    This is life life life life is to show in the way a chance

    Every evening you watching tv
    There’s another misery
    Only pictures and numbers you see
    Cause you dont mind

    Everyday
    Close your eyes and go to bed
    Why would be if you would take it a look

    Woaaahhhh another chance to change a song
    There will be new once took first youll have to find them
    This is the way
    To show look away
    From the wings of humanity today
    This is life life life life is to show in the way a chance
