    JUST LISTEN TO MY HEART BEAT
    By Andre Austin

    I’m so sick of the madness
    Sometimes I wish to die
    I’m wrapped up in a cage of darkness
    Wondering on the reasons why
    (Just listen to my heartbeat)
    My lover thinks I created these silly lies

    Rumors so ill
    I’m about to loose my will
    Take me away to the highest hill
    Before I have to kill

    Gotta keep fighting strong
    Until the truth will change the wrong
    This ain’t no sad song
    And I wont keep u long

    Just listen to my heart beat
    Oh yeah
    Just listen to my heart beat

    I’m reaching out for something true
    Reaching out for a love that’s new

    Just listen to my heart beat
    Oh yeah
    True love, true love is so, so, sweet

    Just listen to my heart beat

    Sounds like a "fire shut up in your bones," AA.


    I feel frustration and aggravation and wanting to scream but holding it in and wanting to hit something but trying not to explode......Or maybe that's just me. :?:


    Either way, I enjoyed this!
