Listen to the song here in my heart A melody I start but can't complete
Listen to the sound from deep within Its only beginning to find release
Oh the time has come for my dreams to be heard They will not be pushed aside and turned Into your own, all 'cause you won't listen
Listen, I am alone at a crossroads I'm not at home in my own home And I've tried and tried To say what's on my mind You should have known Now I'm done believing you You don't know what I'm feeling I'm more than what You've made of me I followed the voice, you gave to me But now I've gotta find my own You should have listened
There was someone here inside Someone I thought had died So long ago Oh I'm screaming out And my dreams will be heard They will not be pushed aside or turned Into your own All 'cause you won't listen
Listen, I am alone at a crossroads I'm not at home in my own home And I've tried and tried To say what's on my mind You should have known Now I'm done believing you You don't know what I'm feeling I'm more than what You've made of me I followed the voice, you gave to me But now I've gotta find my own
I don't know where I belong But I'll be moving on If you don't, if you won't
Listen to the song here in my heart A melody I start, but I will complete
Now I am done believing you You don't know not what I am feeling I'm more than what you've made of me I followed the voice you think you gave to me
But now I got to find my own, my own

Janie Kelly from Indianapolis,inwow oh wow, i thought the song she sang I'd rather go blind was one of the best,untill i heard this song, i never followed beyonce before closely,but she certainly has a new fan that is 65 years old, but knows a great vocalist,, i wish i would of followed earlier, but now isolated, i have a lot of time to catch up...lol..pls stay safe,and listen to a different artist, my late husband introduced tony bennett's music to me ,i was into rock lol, and many years later i introduced him to gaga, imagine that and then history was made in the music world, always try a new sound or artist...it opened up my life, janie kelly much love
Mathew from 23i love beyonces songs
Lisa from Lawrence, NyNot the biggest Bey fan here, but she knocks this one OUT OF THE PARK!!!!! To me its the "every married woman" song, her dreams are put on hold, her man just won't listen and she finally finds herself again, feels those old dreams bubbling up inside, remembers who SHE is, apart from WE, and it just goes from a light flicker to an all out EXPLOSION of emotion. I know I cry every time I hear it, like bawling, get me the whole tissue box, tears. I bring it up to my married friends and they are all like "YES! That's how I feel too!" I SO wish Bey would do more of this (this proves she has the chops to do it!) and less of the "check out my rear" stuff. She is BEAUTIFUL and can be a class act when she chooses. Not that I mind the "fun stuff" ("Crazy in Love", "Single Ladies" "Ring the Alarm"etc), but I feel like she demeans herself with the "booty" stuff. She is more than a "booty", she should respect herself, like she does here. But I guess the "fans" like the "booty" stuff, that is what pays the bills (Bills, Bills, Bills"?), so I sort of get it.
Merqury from Accra, GhanaImpeccable vocals by Beyonce on this song.
Katy from Portland, Ori can relate to this song because a lot of times i feel like my voice or opinion isn't hurt or doesn't matter. it's inspiring to me.
Michael Jackson's "Liberian Girl" opens with the South African female singer Letta Mbulu saying the Swahili phrase "Naku penda piya-naku taka piya-mpenziwe." There was some geographic liberty here, as Swahili is not spoken in the West African nation of Liberia.
