lyrics

LISTENING

I did it again. I’m sorry, I interrupted.
you were telling me about you
I’m trying to listen but I get distracted
I’m hearing those voices saying they know what’s true… for you

and then I forget to hear you and you feel disrespected.
I think you think you know it all and I’m clinging to what I expected…

can we remember to love more?
it’s the only thing on this earth we are here for
can we remember who we were before?
can we remember to love more?

you did it again and now I must let go
of the idea that you always listen to me
we need forgiveness, I admit, I reacted
to what I was afraid of what I think you think you might see…..

and you feel whatever you feel
and we both feel lost and lonely
caught in this circle of fear and despair
saying over and over… “if only….”

can we remember to love more?
it’s the only thing on this earth we are here for
can we remember who we were before?
can we remember to love more?


I see where this goes
I see how we all have responsibility in this world
what do we choose to take in or exclude?
we all require air… love… light… water… and food…

and as one world together, we can turn from fear and greed
as one world, we listen to what everyone everywhere needs

can we remember to love more?
it’s the only thing on this earth we are here for
can we remember who we were before?
can we remember to love more?
