LISTEN TO ME

Written By: Douglas & Suzanne Knight

Well look who’s staggering in
from another night out
I’ll put the coffee on
just sit yourself down
I been thinking lately
thinking ‘bout us
Something’s going on here, boy
but nothing I’d call love
Heard excuses, listened to lies
Allegations and the alibis
Heard it all, it’s the last straw definitely

Now you’re gonna LISTEN TO ME
Gonna hear me out
Let it all sink in ‘fore you scream and shout
Wanna live right in the life I dreamed
I’ve listened to you
Now you LISTEN TO ME
You’re gonna LISTEN TO ME

Now all I hear is the happiest years are to come
But it’s pretty clear the good times are over and done
Not talking ‘bout mansions and furs- don’t need no rings
We’re makin’ no connection so man- just keep all those things
Need someone looking deep in my eye
Feel a heart beating right in time with mine
Wanna hear truth and I want it to set me free

Want someone to LISTEN TO ME
And hear me out
Let it all sink in ‘fore you scream and shout
Wanna catch sight of the life I dreamed

I’ve listened to you
Now you LISTEN TO ME

All those lonely nights- I’m cashing them in
It feels so good just to say it again

You’re gonna listen
LISTEN TO ME
Hear me out
Let it all sink in ‘fore you scream and you shout
It’s a far sight from the good life I dreamed
I’ve listened to you
Now you LISTEN TO ME

(You’re gonna) LISTEN TO ME (repeat)

(She Makes Me) Humble

Written By: Douglas Knight

Well I'd seen her around for a coupla months
When a funny feeling hit me all at once and
My friends agreed I just hadn't been myself
She was a mystery about five foot ten
With a history of an effect on men and
Most definitely she was affectin' my mental health

Now I’m the kind a guy’s pretty wild and free
Find me out on the floor every night of the week
Seems I built a reputation as a smooth talkin’ ladies’ man
Till that little tornado blew in one night
My head spun round from the left to the right
When she said “hi” lookin’ deep in the eye I said
Uhhh …puh puh …pleased to meet ya m’am!

AWW SHE MAKES ME HUMBLE
WHEN SHE WALKS BY I'M ALL TONGUE TIED
I CAN BARELY MUMBLE
I'M ALL THUMBS I'M STRUCK DUMB AND
MY MIND'S A JUMBLE (I tell ya)
SHE REALLY MAKES ME HUMBLE

A few nights later I was out with the guys
Just havin’ a laugh and tellin’ some lies
When I saw her again and thought this time I'll throw a real touchdown
So I summoned my strength and I slinked her way
All the time still thinkin bout what I'd say
I was almost there but didn’t see that chair and
I flipped like a rodeo clown

AWW SHE MAKES ME HUMBLE
WHEN SHE WALKS BY I'M ALL TONGUE TIED
I CAN BARELY MUMBLE
I'M ALL THUMBS I'M STRUCK DUMB AND
MY MIND'S A JUMBLE (I tell ya)
SHE REALLY MAKES ME HUMBLE

Well she helped me to my feet
And said “I like your moves”
I grinned ear to ear then I spilled my beer
On her pretty little snakeskin boots

AWW SHE MAKES ME HUMBLE
WHEN SHE WALKS BY I’M ALL TONGUE TIED
I CAN BARELY MUMBLE
I’M ALL THUMBS, I'M STRUCK DUMB AND
MY MIND'S A JUMBLE (I tell ya)
SHE REALLY MAKES ME HUMBLE

SUDDENLY I'M WEAK I GOT TWO LEFT FEET AND I TRIP AND STUMBLE
MY QUARTERBACK HAS A PANIC-ATTACK
AND MY RECEIVER FUMBLES (I tell ya)
SHE MAKES ME HUMBLE
