"Listen" as written by and Louis Knox Barlow....
I hung around even after I found
There are things I can't change that I hate
Slurring and mean
Like a broken machine
Repeating itself on and on

I'll try, I'll ask you again
To slow down but you won't listen

When I'm under the gun and I'm drinking too much
If I'm laughing a lot, I don't care
If we're doing it wrong, the money is gone
And everything's up in the air
Still I'm wanting a love that is capable of
Rearranging me year after year
And my words are, heard
And change occurs, that isn't happening here

I'll try, I'll ask you again
To slow down but you don't listen

I need to change
So I will change
Without you knowing I'll change
I know you care
But you don't care
Enough to notice me leave
