    Track 14 from Protoje's Sophomore album ' The 8 Year Affair' (2013)

    I'm just making music from my heart
    Not music for the charts, no
    No, I won’t get caught up in all of the things dem woulda start
    To stray I from I path
    Wont fall victim to dem conduct
    I'm making music from my heart
    Not music for the charts, no, no
    With all the things dem coulda start
    To stray I from I path
    Won’t, won’t

    Now I see what is my responsibility
    The blessings I’ve received, I must do my best to lead then
    ‘Cause when people they stand in front of me with them ears attentively
    Well then I do my best to reach them
    For if I am making music from my soul and know my role
    Well then it cannot get depleted
    So divine when these energies align, thoughts flow from mind
    So I know that I

    [CHORUS]

    Mommy, if I never win a Grammy don't you ever cry for me
    No billboard up in the sky for me
    If I never get to put a plaque on Don's wall
    I'll appreciate the fact that even one sold
    Daddy, do you see yourself when you look at me
    I look at you and feel like that is what I've got to be

    When I write, it’s truth and rights incite in every drop
    Represent for all the younger ones that’s coming up
    And show them love
    No competition, it’s not “I,” it’s “us”
    See, for all our times will come and go
    When there’ll be no more lights, and there’ll be no more shows
    And no more interviews, and no more people saying they loving you
    I'm telling you, and then we'll know

    [CHORUS]

    No, no
    Yeah, yeah
    No, hey, hey
    Music from my heart
    Music from my heart
    No, no, no, no, hey
    So I give thanks for the ones that before us, you know?
    And for the ones that forward, you know
    Treat the music with respect
