Is it the same old conversation that made you so complacent?
Are they listening to every word, even though it's so absurd?
I think all you need to be given is just the time of day
Just for you speak, to hear a little bit of what you say

I been listening to what you need
I been listening to what you need

I come from the department of conversation baby
I'm diggin what you're saying, what you're saying to me

I hear you talking babe I'm looking in your eyes
But when my mouth is moving all you hear is lies
I watch you walking baby, can't take my eyes away
But when it comes to something real I leave you out to dry

I been listening to what you need
I been listening to what you need


Been listening
Been listening
Been listening

Every word from your lips puts a picture in my mind (won't you stop)
Don't carry on we're wasting too much time
I've been listening all night long you know what I came to do
Hang on baby where you running to?
