‘Who Will Listen To What I Say?

Who Will Listen To What I Say? (Chapter 5) by fathersofwesternthought12

Lyrics

Are you thinking of her today?
There’s more out there for me.
Who will listen to what I say?

I have to go away
Her beauty makes you free.
Are you thinking of her today?

It’s now too late to pray
Or bow down on one knee.
Who will listen to what I say?

To Europe come what may
What will be will be.
Are you thinking of her today?

The future looks okay
We’ll have to wait and see.
Who will listen to what I say?

No more friends to betray
Or staring out at sea.
Are you thinking of her today?
Who will listen to what I say?
