Why is it so very hard
To stop and real­ly listen
My mouth’s engaged before my brain
I don’t see what I’m missing

Two good eyes can’t help me here
My sens­es search for meaning
Illu­mi­na­tion slow­ly comes
A glimpse of what I’m gleaning

I need to lis­ten with my heart
And keep my mouth at bay
Now tell me what you real­ly feel
I now hear what you say.
