Beyoncé – Listen lyrics

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.

    I can really relate to this song because its like I wanted so many people to listen to me but its like nobody wanted to listen not even my own family but then I song this song nd start getting emotional nd the people I tried to get to listen finally seen something in me like I was crying out for help and support so they started coming around and paying attention more and the main person I tried to get to listen nd notice me finally pain more attention to what I was trying to tell him but of course it was to late for him because I walked away and just kept my distance from him.

    In beyonce mtv, it's like someone who is just mature enough to go on her own. Informing it to the mentor that she'll not be a student anymore, even if the story background tells of someone who was restricted under the manager. Maybe due to being mature people, she did not express much emotion about being suppressed.
    While in charice mtv its like a struggling person who was always restricted in doing things her own way. Her action tells all the emotion she wants to relay. Anger and the longing to be free to do what she wants. This makes it more emotional for the song.
    The second mtv made me cry which I think had expressed what I can relate to.

    I think this song means she have dream but her boyfriend didn't listen what she say. Maybe he just hear what she say. She really poor woman. She facing all the trouble in her dream just alone. Her boyfriend don't care what her mind. Until she find her way without his attention. This song really stating the woman's voice in this world. Really amazing.
    I think this song for man. Try to care and listen to your woman.

    This song is truly inspirational, it was written for the movie dream girls as a reflection of ms. Jones' life. I believe that beyonce like ms. Jones had enough by the time this song was written. This song is about a woman that didn't know who she was or what she was worth. She lives her life following other peoples direction then one day all that changed she grew strength and became to stand up as a strong woman.
