Listening
by Lights



Please excuse me, I'm not thinking clear
It must just be stress
But I likely shouldn't be here
I'm such a mess

I never really ever know what to say
When all of my emotions get in the way
I'm just trying to get us on the same page
I always get it better right afterwards
When all the wrong impressions are said and heard
How come I can never get the right words?
I need to convey, Wish I could explain

The things that I have to work out
I don't feel right
What has come over me, I'm about to lose my mind

I never really ever know what to say
When all of my emotions get in the way
I'm just trying to get us on the same page
I always get it better right afterwards
When all the wrong impressions are said and heard
How come I can never get the right words?
I need to convey, Wish I could explain

Can I let the trees do the talking?
Can I let the ground do the walking?
Can I let the sky fill what missing?
And can I let my mouth do the listening?
The listening

I never really ever know what to say
When all of my emotions get in the way
I'm just trying to get us on the same page
I always get it better right afterwards
When all the wrong impressions are said and heard
How come I can never get the right words?
I need to convey, Wish I could explain what I mean to say
