Listen


I prefer to stand in the background
Where no one can see me
There's no point to stand on the foreground
'Cause no ones gonna listen to me

I'm that small quiet shy girl
That acts and talks differently
I'll stay in my shell like a sacred pearl
'Cause no ones gonna listen to me

If I tried to speak or get a word in
No one would ever hear my plea
So I choose not to try and begin
'Cause no ones gonna listen to me

I'm hiding in the sand like a clam
While everyone judges to some degree
There's no need to tell them who I am
'Cause no ones gonna listen to me

There's no one standing by my side
No friend to help me grow like a tree
I stay small and short and attempt no stride
'Cause who's gonna listen to me

Why should I tell you how I feel
If it will never make me happy
Why should I rely on others to help me heal
If no ones gonna listen to me
