Lyrics
Listen To Me
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 3-1-2017

I can see the footprints and I can smell the sweat
And I can still remember it, No I ain't forgot it yet
Set in motion by the twilight, pale and washed out, a little subdued
It always ends in a vision, that looks a lot like you
Well I might have been, your next of kin, a long-lost friend, gone with the wind,
you never did listen to me
Have you ever heard, a play on words, brown & serve, do not disturb?
You never did listen to me~~~~Listen to me

Well, you may never listen, so may never hear
And you may never see the light, from your fancy chandelier
And you may never know the truth, so I'll speak of it tonight
But you can only substitute, the vapors of this life
You know you should, you knock on wood, you never could, you never would
You never did listen to me
You never cried , no teary eyes, you never sighed down deep inside
You never did listen to me~~~~~Listen to me

--- Chorus ---
And I'm past the age of consent, I've seen the blessed event
I came and you went and I never paid the rent
I am the last thing you dreamt, I am still held in contempt
You came but I went and I never paid the rent
You came but I went and I never paid the rent
-----------------------------------------------
I'm gonna make it, Yeah, I'm not gonna run
I'm gonna hold my ground, I'm gonna, stick to my guns
And when I'm reminded, Yeah, takes away my breath
But nothing's gonna get me, that ain't got me yet
You know you should, you knock on wood, you never could, you never would
You never did listen to me
You never cried , no teary eyes, you never sighed down deep inside
You never did listen to me~~~~~Listen to me

-Repeat Chorus-
