Brother Ali – Own Light (What Hearts Are For) [Official Video]


Greetings to all of you in the language of love. The universal language. Beauty is the splendor of truth. Use your hearts for what your hearts are for. Fill them with light. Do not fill them with darkness. The light of the human heart, when it’s given faith, if it were opened up, it would blind the world. May this message give us eyes with which to see, ears with which to hear and hearts with which to love each other, to love the world, and to do good. You’re not using your heart for what hearts are for. They’ve been trying to shut us down our whole life. I thank God for healing. You ain’t got to get me lit, I’ve got my own light Thank God for listening. Listen, You’ve been trying to build me up my whole life. I thank God for building. You ain’t got to get me lit, I’ve got my own light. I thank God I’m living. Sometimes I feel like a stranger. Maybe I ain’t from here. World going crazy, how could that be unclear? Know that I’m a soldier, hearts are my battleground. Sword in the holster, had to come back around. I ain’t trying to hide away, I just had to meditate. I ain’t got a lot to say, but the ancestors may. Speaking to the whole globe, numbers don’t occur to me. You can listen solo, ’cause you’re the whole world to me. I jump in with both feet, nothing low key. You can find me where I’m s’posed be, where my folks be. If you listen very closely you know who chose me. Nothing that I own owns me and so I’m so free. I remember being hungry, needing groceries. Night time getting no sleep ‘Till my nose bleed. Got a message to the police, “You’re not using your heart for, what hearts are for.” They’ve been trying to shut us down our whole life. I thank God for healing. And you ain’t gotta get me lit, I got my own light. Thank God for listening. Listen, You’ve been trying to build me up my whole life. I thank God for building. You ain’t got to get me lit, I’ve got my own light. I thank God I’m living. Not for one second I believe what you’re telling me. I know you invent the disease and sell the remedy. Universe is sending me centuries of memories. So the very breath that I breathe is all I ever need. I got that Muhammad Ali up in my pedigree. Yes, I’ll be speakin’ my peace up in my seventies. Ain’t worrying about you threatenin’ me, I’m just being honest. I ain’t buying fear just ’cause that’s all you got left. We just want to make love till we wake up. I believe Whoever made us envisioned greatness. And you know they want to paint us with the same brush. Wanna inter-chain us ’till we fill our grave up. Alright, okay, but… When it’s all said, and it’s all done, and I look back at the trophies I’ve won, I will only count one: I’m using my heart for what hearts are for. They’ve been trying to shut us down our whole life. I thank God for healing. You ain’t gotta get me lit, I’ve got my own light. Thank God for listening. Listen, You’ve been trying to build me up my whole life. I thank God for building. You ain’t got to get me lit. I got my own light. I thank God I’m living. And I know who I am. I know Whose I am. On Your wings I fly. In your shoes I stand. I’m animated by love, I don’t move by chance Any stage I touch, or any place I stand There y’all land. Livin’ in the world as it is. Cracked vessel I am. No more and no less than a man. Any possessions that I have are just in my hand. I balance them the best that I can I’m not making no claims, but… I’m using my heart for what hearts are for. All the beauty in this whole life. I thank God for healing. And you ain’t gotta get me lit, I got my own light. Light I thank God for listening. Listen, You’ve been trying to build me up my whole life. I thank God for building. You ain’t got to get me lit, I’ve got my own light. Light I thank God I’m living. Just reflecting all the beauty in this whole life.

  1. So worshipping idols is what Islam teaches? WTF Ali? What kind of goofi Sufi shit is this man… Lol get on that Ahlul Sunnah, showing half naked bitches doing yoga? Man you ain't repping real Islam Homeboy

  2. If I were to date a man or marry one it would be one like this. A good person, with a good message, attempting to do better. Not some Nazi creep at a bar. Gross.
    Have respect for others!!!

  3. Thank you for this song, Ali. So powerful. I hope one day our paths cross as I would love to chat with you about the beauty surrounding us.

  4. Peace be unto you, Brother. A little "joke" I've stumbled on, I think you'll appreciate it.

  5. Complete Bullshit – Islam is still based on it's first conception – Kill the infidel. I stopped the video at about 45 seconds in. This is what you want to showcase? How about the asshole who just stabbed 8 to 10 people on the London bridge, until he was shot down? Christianity had its reformation, Judaism had it's reformation, Buddhism had its reformation – Islam >? – No you are all infidels, and by its work, you are all enemies… So what the fuck is the point of trying to defend these morons and their Jihad- And don't go making a mockery of the truth- if you cannot accept it, you are cattle to the slaughter. They hate you, they hate me – Read their – Holy book, and please – make sense of it. You will realize the lies of their religion.

  17. Been a Brother Ali fan for 10 years and this is the one track that I will never get tired of hearing, or sharing with others. His music got me through some dark times. Homelessness, addiction, depression. All the beauty in this whole life. The most powerfully positive message delivered only the way Ali can.

  18. I donโ€™t judge but I do speculate that he is a religious dude. As catholic as I am, I can say he spreads a good message.

  19. I know you invent the disease and sell the remedy ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

    Ainโ€™t that the truth brother
