"Do you care enough to listen?"-Marlo

Part 1:

Is it that nobody listens

Or is it that nobody cares


Part 2:

It's the fact that I'm not perfect

And have never claimed to be

My good days are bad days

And my bad days are meh

Sure, I try to work on IT

 But that doesn't mean I win


In short just be patient with me


Part 3:

And in return I'll extend my patience to you

For curiousity's sake

Who knows

Maybe you're just like me:

 Adequately confused

While lacking any fuctioning personality

But if you're not

Tell me something I haven't heard before


Part 4:

Tell me

That hypothetically

If I really spoke 

You would drink in my words successfully

And listen while I talked 

Instead of focusing all your energy on saving face


This way I wouldn't have to ask you what you would do


Part 5:

So we both can be sombodies who listen

and as such

subsequently care.
