|Why is all I asked,
and yet I got no answer.
I thought we'd might work it out
but I was really mistaken.
Oh well, I guess, as life goes on,
parading before my eyes.
It never stops, not even for me
Although I wish it'd try.
Why can't I believe in myself
and not rely on other people?
I'd just like to live for myself
Alone and safe behind, behind
My wall. I built it long ago.
I thought I'd torn it down for good,
Threw away all the bricks
But last night, they were back
Stronger than before, my bricks
My wall, it towers above my head
I cannot see out you cannot see in
but I can't even hear you calling
So don't even try, don't even bother
It's not worth the effort on your part
the bricks will appear, two-for-one
in the barrier that hides my heart.
