The Walls

Written By: Marva Holiday

The Walls
By Marva Holiday - Copyright 2005

I’ve reached an age now
Where one tends
To gaze back on the past
It’s not that I have not known love
I’ve not known love to last

Chorus:
And I built up walls within my heart
Each time I was rejected
When love hurt, I’d build more walls
So I would feel protected
For lies, betrayal, shattered trust
More walls, with each emotion
A wall for pain, a wall for tears
A wall for lost devotion

The day that you walked in my life
I wanted you to stay
I longed to share the love I stored
Behind my walls of clay

Chorus:
But, I’d built up walls within my heart
Each time I was rejected
When love hurt, I’d build more walls
So I would feel protected
For lies, betrayal, shattered trust
More walls, with each emotion
A wall for pain, a wall for tears
A wall for lost devotion

I felt so trapped behind those walls
Locked in my private cell
And I prayed that I would be released
From those walls of hell

Bridge:
And ever oh so gradually
While looking in your eyes
And ever oh so gradually
Imagine my surprise
And ever, oh so gradually
Without making a sound
And ever, oh so gradually
The walls came tumbling down

Dreams would elude and seclude me
But little did I realize
That I would not truly dream dreams
Till now, Till Now
Would not truly dream dreams
Till Now

Loss would haunt me and taunt me
But little did I realize
That I would not truly sense loss
Till now, Till Now
Would not truly sense loss
Till Now

Death would mock me and rock me
But little did I realize
That I would not truly see death
Till Now, Till Now
Would not truly see death
Till Now

Hate would astound and confound me
But little did I realize
That I would not truly glimpse hate
Till now, Till Now
Would not truly glimpse hate
Till Now

Strength would reject and neglect me
But little did I realize
That I would not truly gain strength
Till Now, Till Now
Would not truly gain strength
Till Now

Life would elude and seclude me
Haunt me and taunt me
Mock me and rock me
Astound and confound me
Reject and neglect me
But little did I realize
That I would not truly live life
Till Now, Till Now
Would not truly live life
Till Now
