If only someone had listened,
Regina wouldn't have used her dad's gun,
Jorge's mom wouldn't have been driving drunk that night,
Clarence wouldn't have jumped off that bridge.
If only someone had listened,
lives could have been saved.

If only someone had listened,
Tyler wouldn't fear church,
Ann wouldn't fear intimacy,
Susan wouldn't hate her brother.
If only someone had listened,
dozens could have been saved from molestation.

If only someone had listened,
Maria wouldn't have died,
Joseph wouldn't be so mad,
Kensi wouldn't have to hide her bruises.
If only someone had listened,
thousands could be saved from abuse.

If only someone had listened,
Josline wouldn't be caught in a vicious love circle,
Carie wouldn't have killed herself out grief,
Mike wouldn't have started down his dangerous path.
If only someone had listened,
so many people could have been saved from themselves.

If only someone would listen,
dozens would speak out,
then hundreds,
then thousands.
If only someone would listen,
the world would be a better place.
