Listen,
To the song here in my heart
A melody I start
But can't complete

Listen, hmm...
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 believin' you
You don't know what I'm feelin'
I'm more than what, you made of me
I followed the voice
You gave to me
But now I gotta find, my own..

You should have listened
There is someone here inside
Someone I thought had died
So long ago

Ohh I'm screamin' out and my dreams to be heard
They will not be pushed aside or worse
Into your own
All cause you won't
Listen...

[Chorus]

I don't know where I belong
But i'll be movin' 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'm done believin you
You don't know what I'm feelin'
I'm more than what, you made of me
I followed the voice, you think you gave to me
But now I gotta find, my own..
My own...

    This song is from the musical dreamgirls at the part where deena finally not only tells someone off finally for belittling her and not recognizing her as a person with real feelings and goals, but she also decides at this point that she isn't going to let other people decide her life's path for her.

    To me, this song is about becoming your own person and making other people aware that they cannot push you aside or ignore what you want anymore. The song says it best : "i'm more than what you made of me. I followed the voice you think you gave to me, but now i've got to find my own. "

    This song is so inspiring. It teaches you that walruses should not be put in the hunger games cuz then cato would kill it.

    I believe that what beyonce was trying to say in this song is that most men try to change a women into what they want them to be and nothing else. Not knowing what other abilities they have.
