Hoku - Listen Up Lyrics



I've been walked on
I've been pushed around
Dragged all over town
And no hope to be found
I've been caught up
In every game there is to play
Love never played out
The way it should've

And here you are telling me
You think you've got love for me

Well listen up baby
Cause the love I've got to give is so sweet
It don't come for free
Are you hearing me?
Better listen up baby
If we're gonna play
We're playing for keeps
My heart is precious property
Better listen to me

Those that have come before
They didn't see me for me
Squandered the pearls of my love
To them I was never enough
But with you, my baby
It's like a whole different song
You make me wanna sing along
Forget I've ever been done wrong

And here you are telling me
You think you've got love for me

Well listen up baby
Cause the love I've got to give is so sweet
It don't come for free
Are you hearing me?
Better listen up baby
If we're gonna play
We're playing for keeps
My heart is precious property
Better listen to me

You better listen baby
Cause I've played the fool
Broken all my own rules
And I won't let it happen again
But if you change my mind
I think we'll live to try
So don't you mess with my head

Listen up baby

Listen up baby
Cause the love I've got to give is so sweet
It don't come for free
Are you hearing me?
Better listen up baby
If we're gonna play
We're playing for keeps
My heart is precious property
Better listen to me

Listen to me
Listen up baby
If we're gonna play
We're playing for keeps

I've been walked on
I've been pushed around
Dragged all over town
And no hope to be found

    Hate to see someone this amazing be so underrated and unrecognized. Spread the word! Maybe she'll come out with another album (fingers crossed)! This song is so well-crafted - I'm learning it on the guitar and am just starting to appreciate the small details, like how the first verse is harmonized in minor and then when she starts talking about the new love it switches to major that's so smooth it's undetectable unless you're paying really close attention. And the retro-Motown production really takes the song to a higher level. Just wonderful.
