  • I've been trying to find the right words
    But they always seem to hit the page wrong
    You see I tend to fight words
    You breathe 'em into life, and they're gone
    I need some louder speaking actions
    They do what letters could never do
    You see, you are my addiction
    I need more than words to show you

    So listen to me, so listen
    Listen to my heartbeat

    I'd like to think you understand me
    But I never really like to assume
    So you never have to ask me
    I'mma let my actions tell you the tru-hu-huth

    For you-hu-hu-hu
    There is nothing I wouldn't go through-hu-hu-hu
    And if you need some proo-hu-hu-oof
    You can find it in what I do-hu-hu-hu

    Listen to me baby
    And I could tell you everyday
    Just how much I want you
    I-I-I-I I've never been good with words
    But I went and wrote this song for you

    So listen to me, so listen
    Listen to my heartbeat
    So listen to me, so listen
    Listen to my heartbeat

    Ba-ba-baby I need you to listen, open up your ears
    Pay attention, let go of your fears
    I'm not trying to be that dude that got these people in your business
    I'm just trying to love you, can I get a witness? Oh
    Le le le le le let the church say amen! (amen)
    'Cause I know that you need a man! (a man)
    And I'm gon' do whatever I can
    So stop with all the dissin'
    Get to the kissin'
    Baby you know whatchu missin'!

    So listen to me, so listen
    Listen to my heartbeat
    So listen to me, so listen
    Listen to my heartbeat
    Listen to my heartbeat
    Listen to my heartbeat Writer/s: CODY SIMPSON, FAHEEM NAJM, JACOB LUTTRELL, JUSTIN FRANKS, MIKE CAREN, SHAWN CAMPBELL, TAYLOR ROSS
