Wish That You Would Listen

Everyone wants to be heard, no one wants to really listen.

Wish That You Would Listen
by Michael Romani

You come on strong
But you got it all wrong
And I wish that you would listen
Just wish that you would listen

You say you have it all worked out
And that you've removed all doubt
But I wish that you would listen
Just wish that you would listen

Telling me that I'm all wrong
I guess listening takes to long
You only want to be heard telling
Seems it's always you doing the yelling

Telling me that I am addicted to lies
Girl, I think it's time you open your eyes
No man in his right mind puts up with this
Unless it's a man who knows what he misses

Telling me that I offer nothing but fake
You know that's really hard to ever take
Especially from someone who said she loved me
Especially from someone who I know saved me

You come on strong 
But you got it all wrong
And I wish that you would listen
Just wish that you would really listen

You say you have it all worked out
And that you have removed all doubt
But I wish that you would maybe listen
Just wish that you could maybe listen

My story is one that's a hard luck story
Striking out every time that I try for glory
You say that you've seen that I've loved before
So how in the world could I really love any more

You act like you're the only one who knows
But I see your insecurity and it truly shows
Yes, I know better than most of my heartbreaks
I have felt the fire of the cold dawn soul shakes

You come on strong
But you got it all wrong
And I wish that you would listen
Just wish that you would listen

You say that you have it all worked out
And that you have removed all doubt
But I wish you could maybe listen
Just wish that you would maybe listen

It should be evident I always put you first
Trying so hard to give what might quench your thirst
You hand me things to read and I happily read them
You tell me who you want me to be and I try to be him

You know we used to joke about needing your own way
Every time you broke up, I'd let you back that day
When you said you wanted me to learn to speak compassionate
I put aside my needs for feelings more passionate

You come on strong
But you got it all wrong
And I wish that you would listen
Just wish that you would listen

You say that you have it all worked out
But that's truly something that I doubt
I pray to God that you might listen
Knowing that you never ever listen
