 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

You say I only hear what I want to 
 And you say I talk so all the time-so 

 And I thought what I felt was simple
 And I thought that I don't belong
 And now that I am leaving
 Now I know that I did something wrong cause I missed you
 Yeah, I missed you

 And you say I only hear what I want to
 I don't listen hard
 I don't pay attention to the distance that you're running or to
 Anyone, anywhere
 I don't understand if you really care
 I'm only hearing negative, no no no - bad

 So I turned the radio on I turned the radio up
 And this woman was singing my song
 The lover's in love and the other's run away
 The lover is crying cause the other won't stay
 And some of us hover when we weep for the other who
 was dying
 Since the day they were born well
 Well this is not that
 I think that I'm throwing but I'm thrown

 And I thought I'd live forever but now I'm not so sure
 You try to tell me that I'm clever but that won't take me anyhow
 Or anywhere with you 

 And you said that I was naive
 And I thought that I was strong
 I thought "hey I can leave, I can leave"
 But now I know that I was wrong cause I missed you
 Yeah I missed you

 You said "you caught me cause you want me 
 And one day I'll let you go"
 You try to give away a keeper or keep me cause you're know
 just too scared to lose

 And you say, "stay" 
 You say I only hear what I want to.
