Listen To Your Fears

Story

A bit Elton John, perhaps a bit John Mayer, this song, through its poetic imagery, begs the question: why do we let our doubts and fears control us and keep us from doing all that we’re capable of?          

Lyrics

The silly things we tell ourselves
Just gentle poison pushin’ through
Only time is gonna tell if they’re from heaven or from hell
And if they’re telling you the truth

Why do you listen to your fears
Those evil friends you know so well
They’re hanging ‘round and tying you down you can’t be found
You’re hiding from yourself

In your head you’ll find a story left untold
Identified with a gallery of things to come
There’s been a changing of the guard
And a healing sound inside my soul
And all this time I thought the sun won’t shine on me
and having hope was just like singing harmony alone

Don’t say a word just close your eyes
Decide which way your mind will go
Is it some exotic dream or is it just a silent scream
And will you ever really know

Now don’t you listen to your fears
Those evil friends you know so well
They’re hanging ‘round and tying you down you can’t be found
You’re hiding from yourself
