  1. Nobody’s Listening

Lyrics

Nobody’s listening. There’s too much noise.  I’ve never been one to raise my voice.  Nobody’s listening. It doesn’t matter what I say. Nobody’s listening anyway.

It’s not your life.  Don’t hold on too tightly. Just put it in the hand of the Almighty. Be conscious of what directs you. If my life were a movie I’d be an extra. 

People are to love, and things are to use – not the other way around. People get these things confused, when it gets too loud.

In her backyard my neighbor has a motion detector pointed at the wind.  It goes off all night.  They’re on vacation again. Guess I’m not going to get any sleep tonight.

Nobody’s listening. You should try it.  But first thing’s first – you have to be quiet. Nobody’s listening. It doesn’t matter what I say. Nobody’s listening anyway.
