Itís not that Iím not listening
When my eyes seem far away
Iím listening to everything about you
Except for the words you say
The who did what when where with whom
Those details never stick
But how you feel lodges in my heart
And I hear what makes you tick
If youíd rather I remember
About your uncleís cousinís girl
Or your neighborís dog-sitter
Or that movie about the squirrel
Iíll take notes Ė Iíll learn the details
But YOU are the friend I want to read
I canít get enough of your forest
But donít care much about the trees
So, sorry if Iím weak on the setting and the plot
Characters are always where I focus all my thought.
