This ain't for the money, this is for the love This is sweatin' through my shirt before the sun's up Thought that I was shook, thought that I would stop And now I got 'em waitin' for the other shoe to drop Ooh, I'm a flame burning bold in a world that's so cold ❄️ I'm just gettin' started, I been makin' moves before the dawn Cuttin' through the darkness, pray nobody say I don't belong I'll be the first shot heard, then you run for cover Take my world, ain't no water Now I'm just gettin' started And I can go on, and on, and on, and on, and on ⚡️
"It's been a good, good week. Something that I've learned about Aloe Blacc is that he's very poetic in his approach to songwriting. Me, myself, I'm kind of more about the melodies, but he knows exactly where the song is supposed to go. Something that I wish I would have known when I got into songwriting is that you're going to get turned down hundreds and hundreds of times. People will think the song is good, but not for them. That's hard to get used to. I was so excited to be a part of #Songland because songwriters don't have the voice that they need. The singers get the light, the songwriters get pushed to the back. Here, you see the creative process. You see how the song is born and how it turns into something totally different because of the producer. Because of the songwriter." ( @willyechomusic).
Here's a twist for you: @aloeblacc is recording a song to go on the Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw soundtrack. 🤭💽 #HobbsAndShaw #FastFurious #Songland
We were good 'til it wasn't 'Til it all fell apart Every tear wasn't worth it So I had to move on We were done from the get go I wouldn't say we were friends But I ain't easy to let go You don't have to pretend 🎶 You're acting like a child now Trying to take your anger out Well, get my name out of your mouth If you're just gonna tear me down 💪 Don't be so bitter, how 'bout we keep it sweet? No need to talk to me like we're enemies No, you were never worth all my energy And just 'cause you're hurting don't mean you get to hurt me Don't be so bitter, how 'bout we keep it sweet? No need to talk to me like we're enemies No, you were never worth all my energy And just 'cause you're hurting don't mean you get to hurt me. 🍭 #songland
"Music has just always been a part of my life. I was pretty ostracized in middle school. I didn't have a lot of friends. I felt really, really isolated and music was the thing that I turned to to get me through those years. I write because I want to get something stuck in your head. I'm usually pretty quick with songs. I can write full ones in sessions, in an afternoon, in a couple of hours. For me, it really never ends, because I'm always going back in and tweaking and refining the songs. My biggest takeaway from all of this is that I shouldn't doubt myself as a songwriter or as an artist. I want to do both. I think it's something I'm going to be pushing harder for." ( @kolesongs).

“My mom always said, ‘You’re able to do anything your heart desires.’ So that’s how Able Heart came about. I never would have found music if not for the simple fact that I lost what I loved so much in this world. Skateboarding and snowboarding were a big part of my life. Around age 15, I injured my back. It definitely more so felt like it was throwing that life away, but it was a blessing in disguise, because writing and lyrics were a huge play in my recovery. A well-written song can save somebody’s life.” ( @ableheart)

"Songs are received differently to every pair of ears that hears them. Every person has completely different experiences. But a well-written song can cut through ALL of those experiences. As a writer, I can be really hard on myself, so a thing that I'll do to cope with that is I'll take a walk. I've written a lot of songs, but it took a lot of years to believe in myself. There's a lot of parts that culminated to have this amazing experience, but I think my favorite was meeting these writers, meeting new people, and then standing in front of people who I've looked up to for many, many years and hearing them LIKE IT."

On @tebbysworld's lyrics: "I really felt that. The change in mood made a big difference. The verses are super conversational and mournful. It's the song that made the biggest journey from where it was to where it is now. It really gave me chills." - @johnlegend
