Talk hard and
Force your voice to be heard,
Because everyone's ears are stopped up with earbuds,
And somethings need to be heard, but are missed.
I will blast your voice so loud my earbuds explode, if that's what it takes for you to feel heard.
I know how it feels to have no voice,
To be screaming everything out in your head but you mouth is shut.
I will listen to you,
you will be heard.
Everybody knows the same stories
but sometimes, you're the one who can phrase it in a way that's just right.
So open up and speak.
I want to hear it.
I love to listen. Your voice was meant to be heard.
So here I am encouraging you,
jump on it.
Talk Hard - Stan Ridgway
Everybody Knows - Leonard Cohen
