Lyrics

LISTEN by Mary Shapiro

I was drivin’ south on 61 a busted tire made the biker use his thumb
And when he got in here is the tale that he shared:
“I’m a fire fighter in forests black with smoke charred and empty yet I someday hope
to go back there and see the meadows I have planned (just like God’s hand)”

CHORUS
Yes he’s someone who cares
And he has dreams to share
Yes there is hope out there
If I stop to listen

At the party I met a senior girl all excited to get out and see the world
And her eyes shone as she shared her plans for life:
“I’m off to college is bio-chemistry then on to med school in neurology
but in between terms I’ll heal and dance in Africa”

CHORUS
Cuz she’s someone who cares
And she has dreams to share
Yes there is hope out there
If I stop to listen

When I’m tired and I’m feelin’ low only bad news everywhere I go
I remember the tales of strangers I have met

Yes there are folks who care
And they have dreams to share
Yes there is hope out there
If I stop to listen

If I stop to listen

If I stop
