"Listen" as written by and Omari Grandberry Jayshawn Smith....
Listenin to strange fruit, Jay root and beirut
Tryin to listen to Jesus its hard as fake boobs
At times I stay tuned hear the bread break
And grape juice and grey goose gospel
Prelude let it play through
I'm listenin to Mr J Medeiros and Nicolay
While I'm hearing drips of rain
Hit against the window pane
Hits on tape, hit parade 1968
When it plays I hear the bullets penetrate
MLK, soul levitates
When the plane starts to escalate
Top gun, take my breath away
Its time to press and play
Drop the needle then step away
Hear whats said off the record
Before there's nothin left to say

(I hear a song in my heart, song in my heart)

In my room listenin to sermon Gershwin,
Earth, wind, and fire
Listenin to persons I admire
Searchin for higher learnin like Ice cube
On I-tunes, listenin to grown men
Rappin like it's high school
Listenin to friends talk, hearin my pen stop
Used to write first, now I try to listen then jot
Listenin to pop like Reddenbachs
City to the boondocks
Can't you hear the games like a jukebox?
Cause you gotta pay to play
And theres no lay-away
Hearin from folks caught in real snares, no 808
Real talk, my vocals goin straight to tape
I say it straight and never twice
No fake delay
Listen with the volume down, push the sound back
If every life's a movie all our soundtracks
Sound like sound clash
All our sound's bleeding in
To each other no sound reasonin
Stop, breathe again, listen

(I hear a song in my heart, song in my heart)

Music is a great way to heal
And a safe place to feel
Trapped in this fake world
A gateway to real
It's a great way to heal
A safe place to feel
Trapped in this fake world
A gateway to real
Wasn't given much wisdom
My only lesson was listen
Here, lyricism
We live and share the same rhythm
So synchronism of your life
And your right tenses therefore are
You should care for
But be prepared for warfare
From here forth
Cuz this song is a sword of sorts
The one of rare force

Dear Lord, please keep and protect me
I'mma make some changes
If the people elect me
Listen

(I keep a song in my heart, I keep a song in my heart)
