Song Description

The safety and comfort of having your "walls" up to others. A song about someone trying to break thru those walls perhaps prematurely.

Story Behind the Song

I was once part of a class where people thought no one should have "walls" and that a person should be completely exposed all the time. I had people try to push me into this thinking- this song is a direct result of that experience.

Lyrics

These Walls

These walls I’ve built are good for me
I don’t have to feel and you’ll never see
The way I feel inside
I’ve found a place to hide
I’m walkin’ tall got it figured out
How to skate above the world

But you’re catchin’ up to me after class
With your new age words and a fresh attack
Hoping for a break
For the walls to liquidate
A glimpse at what you’re dying to see
A softer and more vulnerable me

You’ll never know what I’ve had to see
You have no idea what it’s like bein’ me
I’m not some prisoner that you have to set free
I built these walls, these walls are home to me

These walls have gotten me this far
Protected me right from the start
It’s got nothing to do with you
Everything to do with you
Nothing wrong with healthy skepticism
A little defense mechanism

Chorus

I want to leave this place behind
Find a place of my own to shine
Float above the trees
Numb to everything but the breeze
Climbing higher and higher
Feelin’ lighter and ligher

Oooooo---
Oooooo---
I’m not some prisoner you have to set free
I built these walls these walls are home to me

Maybe you’re right when I get there
I’ll wonder who I am and why I feel so alone
But for now I feel safer on my own
