about

“Listen” is the second single from the album GOLDEN by Chris Assaad. Rich in sounds instantly reminiscent of vintage R & B and soul classics, the song's lyrics journey from the pain of not being heard to the exhilarating exhalation of finally expressing long-suppressed truths and parts of ourselves. Grounded in a groove that’ll make you want to move, "Listen" invites listeners to reclaim their own voice with the unbridled permission to be fully heard, accepted and loved.

lyrics

Have you heard a word I said?
Or are you all up in your head, now?
Thinking about what’s coming next
So we keep on disconnected

Can you let the feeling rise?
Without the need to run or hide
Just allow the bloody mess
Hold the space and take a breath

All I’m asking
Is for you to listen
Til’ there’s nothing left to say
And I don’t need to change a thing

I’ve been waiting my whole life
For you to wake up and realize
What loving really is
Embracing and accepting

I can understand your pain
And why you did what you did
Now i’m ready to forgive
So let’s start over again

All I’m asking
Is for you to listen
Til’ there’s nothing left to say
And I don’t need to change a thing

Won’t you listen, now?
Won’t you listen?

(Won’t you listen?)
(Won’t you listen?)

All I’m asking
Is for you to listen
Til’ there’s nothing left to say
And I don’t need to change

Won’t you listen?
Won’t you listen?

All I’m asking
Is for you to listen
Til’ there’s nothing left to say
