Listening lyrics

#1 Post by vincenzosz » Fri 04 Jan 2013, 10:16 am

Hey there,

Can anyone help me out with the "I will listen to..." bit at the end of Listening? I can't make out exactly what Neil is saying

Please and thank you

Same here, Neil delivers the lines so fast. I hear "I will listen to your hopes, I will listen to your dreams...". I can kind of hear some bits and pieces of the next lines but not enough to form coherent sentences.

In the "original" songs by Morten Harket (I know it's weird to talk about "original" here when in fact it was written by PSB) these lines are as follows:

I will listen to your hopes
I will listen to your dreams
Anything you want to be
Believe me

I will listen to you now
then again and all the while
I wanna see you smile again
Tyrants and kings both meet the same fate, strung up at your city gate.

Pet Shop Boys version I think says this;

'...I will listen to your hopes
I will listen to your dreams
Anything you wanna be
I will help you to achieve
All the way, please believe
I wanna see you smile again

Oh yeah....'


Thats what I hear anyways, the last verse is a bit difficult to decipher.
Listen without prejudice

Thanks everyone. Appreciate that.

I'm sure the lyrics will be added to the OS soon.

Too bad Neil doesn't sing "Believe me", I really like that.

Not specific to the lyrics, but I just wanted to mention that I'm loving the PSB version to the extent that I actually decided to buy the Morten Harket CD just to get the "original".

Retro. :)
