"Something Is Calling You" as written by and Jesse Harris....
Don't tell them, they'll only drink your tears
Don't do it, not in a hundred years
You know it
You feel it, I do too
Just listen
Something is calling you

What difference do you think that it makes
If you give, or if it's you who takes?
I know it
I feel it, you do too
Just listen
You'll hear it calling you

What difference do you think that it makes
If you give, or if it's you who takes?
I know it
I feel it, you do too
Just listen
You'll hear it calling you

    General CommentThough this is my favorite song of Norah Jones in terms of music and the emotion/atmosphere that it carries, I am not entirely certain what this song really is about. I've seen people post some very insightfull things at lirics here. Does anyone have a clue on what this lyric is about?

    General CommentI'm not sure but I think- with the background- this song is about just forgetting everything else and listen or feel the world around you. Being in touch with your surroundings- seems very hippyish but there's nothing wrong with that

    General CommentI love this! I think it's about a guy (It's written by Jesse Harris) saying to the woman he likes, others will judge the relationship, but as long as they love each other, does it matter?

    General Comment"Don't tell them, they'll only drink your tears"
    don't express you feeling's to them, they'll just get off on your emotions and use you
    "Don't do it, not in a hundred years" don't no matter what
    "you know it, you feel it, I do too. Just listen, something is calling you"
    get in touch with you INSTINCT , GUT FEELING
    it will tell you and let you know what's wrong and right
    and that "something is calling you" someting is trying to let you know that something doesn't add up
    "What difference do you think that it makes?if you give, or if it's you who takes?"
    don't try so hard and obsess over what you are offering in return to the world, it doesn't matter. there's no scale for things given and taken...

    i think she is trying to warn him about a group of people who will use him since he is tries so hard to win them by being giving and she tells him to trust his instinct to push them away and notice them " the people who tries to take advantage of him" amongst the public
