Lyrics:
Listen to the song here in my heart
a melody I start but can't complete

Listen to the sound from deep within
Its only beginning to find release

Ohh the time has come for my dreams to be heard
They will not be pushed aside and turned
Into your own, all 'cause you won't listen

[chorus]
Listen
I am alone at a crossroads
I'm not at home in my own home
And I've tried and tried
To say whats on my mind
You should have known
Now I'm done believing you
You don't know what I'm feeling
I'm more than what
You've made of me
I followed the voice, you gave to me
But now I've gotta find my own
You should have listened

There was someone here inside
Someone I thought had died
So long ago
Oh I'm screaming out
And my dreams will be heard
They will not be pushed Aside or turned
Into your own

All 'cause you won't listen

[chorus]
Listen
I am alone at a crossroads
I'm not at home in my own home
And I've tried and tried
To say whats on my mind
You should have known
Now I'm done believing you
You don't know what I'm feeling
I'm more than what
You've made of me
I followed the voice, you gave to me
But now I've gotta find my own
You should have listened

I don't know where I belong
But I'll be moving on
If you don't, if you won't

Listen to the song here in my heart
A melody I start, but I will complete

Now I am done believing you
You don't know not what I am feeling
I'm more than what you've made of me
I followed the voice you think you gave to me

But now I got to find my own - my own

This is already one of my favourite songs ever, and I've heard Charice sing it before, I just cannot wait 'til she performs it on the show now. It'll be breathtaking!

I have purposely not been listening to the versions on Youtube of Charice singing this song..
I want to be surprised when I listen to it for the first time after Glee releases it. I have only heard the song once a long time ago so it should be good. Can't wait.

Here is Charice singing 'Listen'.
Charice sounds better live so it was not unexpected that her castmates (bleacher pic) were amazed at her singing.

Now that the Mother of All Spoilers has been posted, it makes sense why this song was chosen for Sunshine's audition.


Her being a foreign exchange student,

"I am alone at a crossroads
I'm not at home in my own home"


Sunshine on Rachel's deception


"Ohh the time has come for my dreams to be heard
They will not be pushed aside and turned
Into your own, all 'cause you won't listen...
Now I'm done believing you
You don't know what I'm feeling
I'm more than what
You've made of me
I followed the voice...
But now I've gotta find my own
You should have listened."

Completing her audition in spite of everything,

"Listen to the song here in my heart
A melody I start, but I will complete"

Sunshine going off to join Vocal Adrenaline,

"But now I got to find my own - my own"

Great analysis!

The lyrics combined with it being a "belter" song is why I foretold it was gonna be her audition over a month ago wink.gif.. "pats himself on the shoulder"

Charice is a really talented singer and I respect her a lot but WHY MUST SHE GROWL IN EVERY SONG SHE SINGS. it's annoying and distracting.

Hmmm Growl ? What growl do you speak of? I have listened to a lot of her vids, and I have never heard her growl. In fact, this is the first time I have read such a comment on her singing. Perhaps you could articulate yourself are little bit more clearly, as your comment is a little bit confusing blink.gif

Actually, I have heard Beyonce live and as much as I respect B, I have to defer to Charice on this one. She kills this song like no other. Just my preference biggrin.gif

I have the same thing in mind too. What do you mean by growling? Better yet, give us the specific times so we would understand what you mean.
