Morten Harket – Listening lyrics
See the tension in your face
Feel the nerves when we embrace
What emotions do you hide?
All those years of silent thought
Betrayed by those whose help
You sought
Exiled, lost and forced inside

If you want me
I will listen to your words
The dreams you have deferred
The battles fought
If it helps to
Take me to those dark extremes
The meaning of your dreams
The way you've thought
Just talk
I'm listening
Just talk

I know your tastes in food and wine
But never really what's on your mind
What's going on inside your head?
I hear you say what you can or can't
I'm never sure what it is you want
There's always something left unsaid

We ride the waves of joy and fear
I see you on the brink of tears
I never know how you'll react
Then the sudden laughter rings
The sun is shining, life begins
Happiness could be a fact

I will listen to your hopes
I will listen to your dreams
Anything you want to be
Believe me

I will listen to you now
Then again and all the while
I wanna see you smile again
Oh, yeah
I'm listening
