Lyrics

You take this all for granted

No you don’t have a clue

You sit there with your stupid grin

Is that all that you can do

 

You take this love for granted

And I’m starting to believe

There’s not much left to hold me here

I think it’s time to leave when I

 

Stare out the window

Turn on the news

Act like my paradise is nothing you can use

Turn on the radio and

Tune you out

I may be whispering but you should hear me shout

 

Listen

Listen to me

You don’t listen

Listen to me

 

You never pay attention

When I’m screaming to be heard

Do I have to spell it out for you

Do you need to see the words

How long can we sit here

In completely separate rooms

With your attention somewhere else

Do you hear me call the tune when I

 

Stare out the window

Turn on the news

Act like my paradise is nothing you can use

Turn on the radio and

Tune you out

I may be whispering but you should hear me shout

 

Listen

Listen to me

You don’t listen

Listen to me

 

Dirty windows, empty visions

Do you see the bind that I’m in

Cross the border to the threshold

Heavy with the tears and then there’s

You that sits apart in silence

Never quite aware and science

Can’t explain to me why you look

Somewhere else when I

 

Stare out the window

Turn on the news

Act like my paradise is nothing you can use

Turn on the radio and

Tune you out

I may be whispering but you should hear me shout

 

Listen

Listen to me

You don’t listen

Listen to me
