Everywhere All The Time: Listen To Me

She cried that night against his chest
He told himself start listening
Her mind's a mess at your expense
Pretty soon you'll be paying it

You're a fool to think you know where her heart wants to go
Taking for granted what she gives you every day

Listen to me, listen to me
Every lie you ride in life comes home fully
It's all out now, and you see how
You might be waking up alone any day now

Take a chance in life and love and you might find
What your holding here is better than your dreams combined
You better think - it's for her, it better be

He thought about the promises
He told himself start owning them
Her heart's broke up at your expense
Tell her now you'll be paying it

The night's alive with a reckoning
Find out if she's listening
