Stop and listen

I've been laying wake all night long
This old mind ain't leaving me alone
I've got trouble with an aching heart
It's you who's been tearing it apart
The good times they are long gone
And I do my best to barley hold on
But you don't seem to care that much
You're just busy doing your own stuff

But if you don't stop and listen
Take what's been given
Some day soon I won't be around
And if you don't stop and listen
I'll break out of this prison
I'm getting sick of waiting around

I've been alone aching all night long
Hoping for you to come along
But you don't seem to find your way home
You rather stay out dancing till the dawn

So tell me tell me what did I do wrong
I thought our love was so strong
I give you every little bit of my heart
But you just keep on tearing it apart
