  • All I wanted was a record deal
    A couple dollars when I got it
    I couldn't understand why I still had all my problems
    All alone, couldn't find no help
    And the stage ain't a good place to find yoself
    So I started liftin bass, hopin if I got bigger
    My confidence would too
    Didn't work, go figure
    Big ol chest, hole in my heart
    I even bought a chain but I used to glow in the dark
    But it didnt't work though
    Interrupt my work flow
    Hear them haters talk shit
    And I took it personal
    But today I feel like someone answered my prayers
    I know it's comin out so it's cool

    Let's peel off a layer
    To what's underneath
    What makes the real me?
    I want you to see

    Ma ma ma ma my pain
    My struggle, my story, my life
    My heart, my spirit, my time, my fight
    My flaws, my errors, my God, my life
    My heart, my spirit, my time, my light

    My light (Light light light)
    (Light light light)
    Ma ma ma ma ma light (light light light)
    (Light light light)

    What is meant to be will be, all the rest we'll see
    All the rest we'll see
    Had that dream of no dreams 'cause I'm livin out my dreams
    Alright, yeah let's just say it was new beginning
    I followed my heart and now I'm winning winning winning
    Like I'm supposed to
    Like I'm made for
    Sean told me, we still the same boy
    All I know is God in me when I'm writing songs
    You could chase the wrong shit your whole life long
    But it didn't work though, interrupt yo work flow
    I was on the wrong path, spinnin round in circles
    But today I feel like someone answered my prayers
    I know it's comin out so it's cool

    Let's peel off a layer
    To what's underneath
    What makes the real me?
    I want you to see

    Ma ma ma ma my pain
    My struggle, my story, my life
    My heart, my spirit, my time, my fight
    My flaws, my errors, my God, my life
    My heart, my spirit, my time, my light

    My light (Light light light)
    (Light light light)
    Ma ma ma ma ma light (light light light)
    (Light light light)

    My light (Light light light)
    (Light light light)
    Ma ma ma ma ma light (light light light)
    (Light light light)
