Still Listening

I heard this song today while I was savasana-ing after this practice and it made me smile uncontrollably as my eyes filled with happy tears.  The lyrics are so simple, but they effortlessly articulate the reason why I practice, to let distractions melt away and really listen to whatever it is I need to hear.

"Still Listening" - Lucky Brown

Do you hear voices in your head?
That talk and sing to you in bed?
And do those voices give you thoughts,
'bout what is good and what is not?
[Well I heard some things, but I'm still listening I'm still listening]

Do you hear a voice that makes you laugh?
Or one that knows your secret past?
Is it sure or does it doubt?
Does it whisper, does it shout?
[Well I heard some things but I'm still listening. I'm still listening.]

Do you listen for the voice?
Or is it drowned out by the noise?
It's just the voice that you listen to,
But don't always do what it tells you.
[Well I heard some things, but I'm still listening. I'm still listening.]

It's the voice you hear everyday and sometimes wish, would go away.
But if that voice should ever fall silent,
Be quiet 'til you hear it again.
[Well I heard some things, but I'm still listening. I'm still listening.]
