Song Lyric Sunday – Listen by Beyonce

I’m assuming someone else will choose this one as well, but I just couldn’t not post this one. As soon as I came up with the theme, this song started playing in my head. I just finished listening to it, and I have the chills. It is such a powerful song and Beyonce is masterful in her craft, to say the least.

I didn’t realize how powerful the lyrics were until I just read them. Wow. I’ve been that person who was told they weren’t good enough. It is such an empowering place when you finally realize your worth and walk away from the person who was holding you back.

I do hope you enjoy!

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Listen to the song here in my heart
A melody I start but can’t complete
Listen to the sound from deep within
Its only beginning to find release
Oh the time has come for my dreams to be heard
They will not be pushed aside and turned
Into your own, all ’cause you won’t listen
Listen, I am alone at a crossroads
I’m not at home in my own home
And I’ve tried and tried
To say what’s on my mind
You should have known
Now I’m done believing you
You don’t know what I’m feeling
I’m more than what
You’ve made of me
I followed the voice, you gave to me
But now I’ve gotta find my own
You should have listened
There was someone here inside
Someone I thought had died
So long ago
Oh I’m screaming out
And my dreams will be heard
They will not be pushed aside or turned
Into your own
All ’cause you won’t listen
Listen, I am alone at a crossroads
I’m not at home in my own home
And I’ve tried and tried
To say what’s on my mind
You should have known
Now I’m done believing you
You don’t know what I’m feeling
I’m more than what
You’ve made of me
I followed the voice, you gave to me
But now I’ve gotta find my own
I don’t know where I belong
But I’ll be moving on
If you don’t, if you won’t
Listen to the song here in my heart
A melody I start, but I will complete
Now I am done believing you
You don’t know not what I am feeling
I’m more than what you’ve made of me
I followed the voice you think you gave to me
But now I got to find my own, my own

  1. Wow, chills all over! What a powerful song. I like Beyonce, but I’ve never heard this one before and I admit, i haven’t seen the movie yet, either, even though I want to – I tend to put off movies I know are going to gut me emotionally, and as dumb as it sounds, I just don’t want to think of Jamie Foxx in that kind of a role, either. LOL I know, they’re weird quirks. Anyway, great, great, fantastic song pick, thanks for sharing! ♥
