Listen


Close the windows and lock the doors
Don't listen to the knock
Close your eyes and make believe
You don't hear the ticking of the clock
Block out all the shouts
Cover your ears tight
Pretend there is no sound
To break the silence of the night
Rock slowly back and forth
To the beat of your own drum
Don't ever let them know
Where the sound is coming from
Make yourself smaller
Hope the just don't see
The shadow that you were
With your head on your knee
Love again with all your might
Hope the next will be true
Nobody should be left in a closet
Waiting for a soul to renew.
