Listen to me

(David Foster, Will Jennings / Linda Thompson)

Father, listen to me I'm a lot like you
I must live my life and give it true
Like you said you have to do

Mother, listen to me there's so much to tell
It's some words of love to listen well
When the pain is coming through

Lover, life is closing in from everywhere
There's so little time to show we care
Say the words that show our hearts

Won't you listen to me
Knowing how we fall
Listen to me
Knowing love is all

I am in you and you are in me
Through each other's eyes we see
Listen to me

Hold me
I will hold you
Listen to me while I speak my heart
You can talk to me
We're all looking for a place to start
Where we tell the truth again
Tell the truth again

Love me
Listen to me
Life is not that long
And we don't have the time to get it wrong
Let's believe and let's begin
Let's begin

Won't you listen to me
For we know how we fall
Listen to me
Knowing love is all
I am in you and you are in me
Through each other's eyes we see
Listen to me

Listen to me
For we know how we fall
Listen to me
Knowing love is all
I am in you and you are in me
Through each other's eyes we see
Just how good our lives could be
Through each other's eyes we see
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me
