lyrics

See me turn and put the wall back up
See me turn and put the wall back up
Even when I’m trying it never seems enough
See me turn and put the wall back up

And I am sorry now for what I do
I am sorry now for what I do
Oh my heart grows tired even when my soul is true
I am sorry now for what I do

And I am sorry too for all I’ve done
Oh I am sorry too for all I’ve done
My heart will always love you but I fear that fear has won
I am sorry too for all I’ve done

But here’s hoping you are not that far
Oh here’s hoping you are not that far
Always in my memory but still outside my walls
Here’s hoping you are not that far

And sometimes I think of being done
Sometimes I think of being done
With all the pain that was and all the pain to come
Sometimes I think of being done

But you’ll never see me tear the wall back down
No you’ll never see me tear the wall back down
Now you are gone and I can wear my coward’s crown
You’ll never see me tear the wall back down

No you’ll never see me tear the wall back down
Cause I’ll only tear it when you’re not around
Now that you are gone I can wear my coward’s crown
You’ll never see me tear the wall back down

His songs build on a foundation of lovingly broken-in acoustic guitar and instantly familiar vocals, delicately layering on subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle) textures to create a truly unforgettable sound. ... more
