She Just Listened (Written by Jef Joslin)

VERSE
The other night she came home
About six bottles deep
And I climbed out from under
My imaginary trash heap
And I told her how I felt
About this and about that
How I lay beneath the heaviness
Of the weight of life itself
And somewhere in the middle
Of this drunken rambling on
I looked up from my complaints
And half expected her to be gone

CHORUS
She just listened
With a giggle and smile
And she just listened
No she didn’t bat an eye
And she just listened
And her eyes they glistened
And she just listened
Anyone else would have shaken their head
And made me feel small
But she showered me with grace
And she looked at me with love
And she just listened

VERSE 2
The other day I heard a shout
From inside my glass of wine
And the shame and guilt of yesterday
Came flooding through my mind
So I started to confess
All the things that I had done
Every slimy bit inside my soul
That might cause a girl to run
I filled the room with tears of blood
Till I drained my body dry
And she waded through all my regrets
With forgiveness in her eyes

BRIDGE
She didn’t cry
She didn’t ask me why
She didn’t try to give me answers
She didn’t need to tell me lies
She just welcomed all my pain into her eyes
