Hands Against The Wall – Matthews
From the album ‘Slow’ Julie Matthews

I’ve been watching you, building a wall
Inch by inch, strong and tall
Keeping me out, Keeping you in
But the wall won’t keep you from the enemy within

Chorus
All I want is tear the big wall down
Break the chains that keep you bound
Just one crack and it might fall
You might see if you look inside your heart
You built a prison not a fort
You’re fooling me the least of all
I’ve got my hands against the wall

You tell yourself, you’re safe inside
That nobody sees the things you try so hard to hide
But I have seen, I’ve been shown
I touched the beating heart that you encase in stone
Chorus


So turn away, close your eyes
Can’t bear or dare to see what’s there in mine
But a storm is coming, a hurricane
And when it breaks the wall you built won’t stand the strain

Chorus
All I want is tear the big wall down
Break the chains that keep you bound
Just one crack and it might fall
You might see if you look inside your heart
You built a prison not a fort
You put it up without a thought
You’re fooling me the least of all
I’ve got my hands against the wall
