I'm listening

You don’t think I hear you, I do
You don’t think I see you, I do
I know what you say about me
When you think I’m not listening
I know what you think of me
What did I do to deserve the ridicule?
Why do I deserve this?
Why am I so different;
That you all hate me
I know what you think
You don’t think I do
But I was listening
I heard you
I know what you said
I see what you do
I never did anything to you
Why must you say things like this about me?
You don’t say them to me,
Only about me
What did I do?
I see you
I hear you
If only I had the strength to tell you you’re wrong
I’m not what you think
I know what you think
That’s not me
I wish I had the strength to show you
Who I really am
I don’t
So I’ll sit here and listen
Listen to you talk about me
