Josh Groban – Children Will Listen / Not While I'm Around lyrics

Careful the things you say
Children will listen
Careful the things you do
Children will see
And learn

Children may not obey
But children will listen
Children will look to you
For which way to turn
To learn what to be
Careful before you say
"Listen to me"
Children will listen

Careful the wish you make
Wishes are children
Careful the path they take
Wishes come true
Not free

Careful the spell you cast
Not just on children
Sometimes the spell may last
Past what you can see
And turn against you

Careful the tale you tell
That is the spell
Children will listen
Listen

Nothing's gonna harm you
Not while I'm around
Nothing's gonna harm you
No sir, not while I'm around

Demons are prowling
Everywhere nowadays
I'll send them howling
I don't care, I got ways

No one's gonna hurt you
No one's gonna dare
Others can desert you
Not to worry, whistle, I'll be there

Demons will charm you
With a smile, for a while
But in time
Nothing can harm you
Not while I'm around

Not to worry, not to worry
I may not be smart
But I'm ain't dumb
I can do it
Put me to it
Show me something
I can overcome
Not to worry now

Being close and being clever
Ain't like being true
I don't need to
I would never hide a thing from you
Like some

No one's gonna hurt you
No one's gonna dare
Others can desert you
Not to worry, whistle, I'll be there

Demons will charm you
With a smile, for a while
But in time
Nothing can harm you
Not while I'm around
