I’LL BE LISTENING

I’LL BE LISTENING

WORDS AND MUSIC BY HENRY GROSS ©2009 ACHTUNES, ASCAP

 

PEOPLE SAY SHE’S BEEN GONE AWHILE
WHEN I HEAR ‘EM TALK IT ALWAYS MAKES ME SMILE
‘CAUSE TO ME IT SEEMS LIKE SHE’S NEVER BEEN AWAY

EVERYWHERE I GO I SEE HER FACE
THE MEMORY OF HER STYLE AND GRACE
IS WITH ME NIGHT AND DAY

IF IT RAINS OR IF IT SHINES
I FEEL HER PRESENCE DEEP INSIDE
THAT SHE’S STILL PART OF ME CAN’T BE DENIED

I NEVER GIVE UP THINKING I’M IN LUCK
THOUGH WE SHARED A LOT IT WASN’T NEARLY ENOUGH
BUT THERE’S NO USE IN CRYIN’

WAY UP HIGH ON THE MOUNTAIN OF LOVE
YOU CAN SEE ‘TILL FOREVER
SO I KNOW THAT SHE’S THERE UP ABOVE
SENDING DOWN HER LOVE 

PEOPLE SAY GOTTA LOSE THE BLUES
GOTTA BE HERE NOW, GOTTA GET BACK IN THE GROOVE
FIND A MATCH WHO’LL COME AND LIGHT MY FUSE

I’M ALONE BUT IT’S NO GRIND
GOOD COMPANY’S NOT HARD TO FIND
SHE’S IN MY HEART AND MIND

WAY UP HIGH ON THE MOUNTAIN OF LOVE
THERE’S AN ANGEL WHO’S SINGING
WHEN THE BELL RINGS AND SHE GETS HER WINGS
I’LL BE LISTENING, I’LL BE LISTENING

THE LESS YOU KNOW THE MORE YOU’VE GOTTA BELIEVE
IN THINGS YOU SENSE BUT CANNOT SEE
SO I’LL BE LISTENING

FADE CHORUS

IN THE SOUNDS OF THE CITY
IN THE PATTER OF THE RAIN
IN THE RUMBLE OF THE WHEELS ON A MIDNIGHT TRAIN

IN THE CRYING OF THE WOLVES
IN THE CHIRPING OF THE BIRDS
IN THE LYRIC OF A SONG, IN THE SPOKEN WORD

IN THE WHISTLE OF THE WIND
IN THE OCEAN’S ROAR
I’LL BE LISTENING FOREVERMORE
