 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, I turned the radio on, 
Iturned the radio up 
And this woman was singing my song 
Lovers in love and the other's run away 
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" 
Oh 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 know you're just so 
Scared to lose 

And you say, 
You say 
I only hear what I want to
