Joy Oladokun – taking the heat

https://youtu.be/cwtDBrcFZ_o

I know what it’s like to think about everybody else
and wonder if anybody else is thinking about me

I know what it’s like to hold a weight so deep in yourself you wonder if anybody else could ever carry

The pain of it
The rage of what
It takes to just be awake

Nobody ever wonders how the strong stay strong
They get what they want and then they move along
Never think twice about what could be

Does anybody wonder when the legends die young
If there’s anything that we could have done
To stop a strong one
From taking the heat

Know what it’s like to keep it all in my head
Until my worries like a knife in my chest
Split me open while i’m lying in bed
What else am i gonna have to lose
What other magic tricks will i have to do
Until I finally have nothing left to prove

The pain of it
The rage of what
It takes to just be awake

Nobody ever wonders how the strong stay strong
They get what they want and then they move along
Never think twice about what could be

Does anybody wonder when the legends die young
If there’s anything that we could have done
To stop a strong one
From taking the heat
