"Listen" as written by and Rob/reidell Tabachka....
An all year summer fling.
A midsummer night's daydream.
How can I say in three words what I don't understand?
It's gonna lose it's beauty if I don't shut up.

I'm gonna find my voice when I finally stop. it's only words - too many words.
"don't waste my words," she said, "they're all I have".
This song is about my tendency to over-explain everything (isn't this ironic?).
It's very difficult for me to minimize, but I think that it's important.

Solitary metaphors and simple lines can leave more room for interpretation and communication,
But I have to reconcile that with my need to be understood.
