Speak, speak your mind
Your always telling me I need to open mine
And wait, wait your turn
Then shut me out cause you've got nothing left to learn


Oh, you say there's nothing wrong with being proud
So tell me what you love and say it loud
Now here's the dose that you've been dishing out
If you're listening this is how much it hurts
If you're listening this is how much it hurts

Oh, I'm wrong
I'm wrong again
But not because of where I stand but where I've been
And it burns
Oh, you know it burns like hell

To know there's nothing I can do but wish you well

You say there's nothing wrong with being proud
So tell me what you love and say it loud
I've been good enough to stay and hear you out
But you're wrong
You're never wrong

Oh, you say there's nothing wrong with being proud
Ya, so tell me what you love and say it loud
I've been giving you the benefit of the doubt

If you're listening this is how much it hurts
If you're listening this is how much it hurts
If you're listening this is how much it hurts
If you're listening this is how much it hurts

    General Commentthis song isn't by john mayer... don't be fooled by john mayer's myspace. It's actually by a band called Just Off Turner, he's just trying to promote new/good but no well-known artists.

    General Commentwho cares? It's still a great song, the artist's name doesn't degrade a song, or make it better for that matter. I could write a song and even though nobody knows me, that wouldnt stop people from commenting on it, because the content's what matters.
