Listen to the song here in my heart
A melody I start but can't complete


Listen to the sound from deep within
It's only beginning to find release

Oh the time has come for my dreams to be heard
They will not be pushed aside and turned
Into your own, all 'cause you won't listen

[Chorus]
Listen
I am alone at a crossroads
I'm not at home in my own home
And I've tried and tried
To say what's on my mind
You should have known oh
Now I'm done believing you
You don't know what I'm feeling
I'm more than what
You've made of me
I followed the voice, you gave to me
But now I've gotta find my own
You should have listened


There was someone here inside
Someone I thought had died
So long ago
Oh I'm screaming out
And my dreams will be heard
They will not be pushed aside or turned
Into your own
All 'cause you won't listen

[Chorus]
Listen
I am alone at a crossroads
I'm not at home in my own home
And I've tried and tried
To say what's on my mind
You should have known oh
Now I'm done believing you
You don't know what I'm feeling
I'm more than what
You've made of me
I followed the voice, you gave to me
But now I've gotta find my own

I don't know where I belong
But I'll be moving on
If you don't, if you won't

Listen to the song here in my heart
A melody I start, but I will complete

OH now I am done believing you
You don't know not what I am feeling
I'm more than what you've made of me
I followed the voice you think you gave to me

But now I got to find my own
My Own

    This song is not just a simple song to me. This is my fave song. When you hear this you will feel that no one can help you except your self. It taught me to stand up on my own. Listen is inspirational to people. If you listen very well,you will feel what the song says to you. It says that every person have their own lives. I mean people have to listen what someone says. It told me how people can live their own. I don't know what everyone thinks,but for me it is inspirational.

    the song was very inspiring, simply because it inspires me so so much plus the fact that beyonce has a very powerful voice. I like really like it.

    It sounds like shes trying to get the attention of her lover but it wont get though to him that she is trying her best to get him to notice her. I think she wrote this song because shes not her self because of her lover... Maybe he should listen to what she has to say to him.
