Response to School of Rock: If Only You Would Listen

Updated: Jan 4

Explanation: This was a response song from the parent's perspective to the song If Only You Would Listen from School of Rock


Hold On To Reality

The poets lied

The stars don’t sing

The birds don’t talk

Heart’s don’t have wings

So now I question everything

Until the morning comes

Until the morning comes


We don’t hold the whole world in our hands

I wish I could tell you we did

I wish I could say I had a plan

But the word's something I've never needed

Hold onto your hearts

Tear the whole world apart

One day I promise you’ll be free

But for now

Hold on to reality


I know right now you're hurting

But the lines of the world are always blurring

And I'm the bad guy

I know it's sad I

Wish I could tell you why


Silence is much louder when

The landed bird can’t fly

When the hopes of one who tried to love

Will never catch the light

Fiction is the place you seek

When reality appears

But the presence of your lost escape

And the truth will show your fears


We don’t hold the whole world in our hands

I wish I could tell you we did

I wish I could say I had a plan

But the word's something I've never needed

Hold onto your hearts

Tear the whole world apart

One day I promise you’ll be free

But for now

Hold on to reality
