Listen to Me

Liner Notes: 

This was inspired my the prompt on the main page, suggesting to write a song about giving advice. I put the lyrics from all four songs ("Dear Abby", "Everybody's Free", "You Learn" and "You Can't Always Get What You Want") into a cut-up machine, and then created a theme from most of the random unidentifiable words.
The song represents my need for someone to confide in, especially about unrequited love and dissolution of friendships.

Lyrics: 

v1
I can't decide where to go
Naked and alone in this cold world
Would you recommend me some advice?
Would you become my guiding light?

chorus
My friend, please listen to me
Don't make my heart bleed
I know that she's left me alone
And your story is like my own

v2
Bewildered and reckless, life is expensive
But I don't really want to get offensive
I just need to vent my frustrations
Hope you'll give me a recommendation

chorus
My friend, please listen to me
Don't make my heart bleed
I know that she's left me alone
And your story is like my own

bridge
Throw the telephone at the wall
Shout obscenities in the hall
I'm a noise-maker, should I keep it down?
So you won't make complaints in the town

v3
You know I'm not really dead
You can see by the tears I've shed
I will say why I'm feeling concerned
And you can tell me what you learned

chorus
My friend, please listen to me
Don't make my heart bleed
I know that she's left me alone
And your story is like my own



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I love the line "I'm a noise maker, should I keep it down?" This is a good appeal for advice in a world where many people take advice as a personal offense.

I think people should be heard more, throw more phones in the wall and be heard. great writing on this prompt.
