Only Thing I Hear

This song is by Skylar Grey, features Travis Barker and appears on the Spotify edition of Don't Look Down (2013).

My parents say that you'll never amount to much
They say that I should be careful 'cause you're bad luck
When I try to ignore them, they say,
"Listen up, this is how it will be."

I get so tired of listening to everyone
Tell me what should I be feeling, what I should want
So I try to ignore them but it never stops
I just can't get any peace

As I wander to your side of town each day
Where the windows are barred
And hopeless lays on the street,
All the noise disappears
You're the only thing I hear

What they don't know is that I am a lot like you
It doesn't matter that we have an ocean view
Though it's all picture perfect, unlike me and you
They just fight all the time

And I get so tired of listening to everyone
Tell me I have everything that a girl should want
Because under the surface this place is corrupt
I just can't get any peace

As I wander to your side of town each day
Where the windows are barred
And hopeless lays on the street,
All the noise disappears
You're the only thing I hear

When there's thunder in the sky (you're the only thing I hear)
And the sirens blare at night (you're the only thing I hear)
When there's gunshots in the street (you're the only thing I hear)
There's no place I'd rather be (you're the only thing I hear)

As I wander to your side of town each day
Where the windows are barred
And hopeless lays on the street,
All the noise disappears
You're the only thing I hear
