    I agree with you wholeheartedly, since I was 14 years old I engage at lease once a month in writing versions to songs I love (both known and unknown songs) in the language I know (there are 4 I know).
    I don't do it for any profit or money, I make (barely) my living from grinding in a call centre and even though I don't like it, I survive because I know in my spare time I'm doing something meaningful and create songs that will stay long after me and in the meantime give purpose to my life.
    I'm still trying to find how to turn my dream of become a known singer so that people will hear my voice into a hobby I do just because I enjoy, I admit I have a problem 'letting go' even though becoming a singer who really makes a living out of writing and singing is almost impossible (especially for an immigrant with barely money left at the end of each month).
    But I hope in time to come with terms with the feeling I have when singing and writing and to forget about wanting more out of it.
