Nobody's Listening

There was a time babe
You’d say “honey I’m cold”
I’d whip off my jacket
didn’t need to be told
So it hurts me to tell you now
Nobody’s listening any more

How many nights babe
did we go out with friends
you’d drop an insult
from which no friendship mends
And I’m sorry to share with you
Nobody’s listening anymore

Took me forever sweetheart
to finally catch on
You ain’t right with the world girl
Just a bubble off plumb
Now the time has come dear
For you to find your own way
I’m done cleaning up your messes
That's why I left you yesterday

So goodbye baby
I know it has to burn
Wish I could help you girl
But you know it’s what you earned
While it pains me to tell you now
Nobody’s listening any more

Took a real long time girl
till it finally took its toll
You ain’t right with the world babe
some kind of magnet for woe
Now it’s up to you dear
To find your own way
I’m done cleaning up your messes
That’s why I left you yesterday

So goodbye baby
I know it has to burn
Wish I could help you girl
But it’s only what you earned
So while it pains me to tell you now
Nobody’s listening any more
