lyrics

Why Won’t You Listen to Me?
by David Hedrick

You say, “Be safe” when I’d rather be free.
It’s done you no good. Why won’t you listen to me?
You say, “Fit in” when I’m weird as can be.
It’s done you no good. Why won’t you listen to me?

You may be right. It may be a phase,
a passing mental disease.
But here’s a plan, I’ll give you the cure.
Why won’t you listen to me? To me?

You’re pushing ties, when I’m wearing tees.
It’s done you no good. Why won’t you listen to me?
You’re buying suits; I’m trying on jeans.
It’s done you no good. Why won’t you listen to me?

You may be right. It may be a phase,
a passing mental disease.
But here’s a plan, I’ll give you the cure.
Why won’t you listen to me? To me?


Was there a time when you felt just like me,
an outcast and so incomplete?
Well, here’s a clue since you’re too blind to see:
Why won’t you listen to me?

You say, “Be safe” when I’d rather be free.
It’s done you no good. Why won’t you listen to me?
You say, “Fit in” when I’m weird as can be.
It’s done you no good. Why won’t you listen to me?

You may be right. It may be a phase,
a passing mental disease.
But here’s a plan, I’ll give you the cure.
Why won’t you listen to me? To me?
