"Build That Wall" as written by Jon Brion and Aimee Mann....
She's been a long time on the phone
Courtin' disaster in an undertone
She's feelin' nostalgic
And feelin' that fall
How could anyone ever fight it?
Who could ever expect to fight it
When she builds that wall

Maybe it's one where time will tell
Maybe it's one where it's just fare thee well
I hear her comin'
As she walks down the hall
How could anyone ever fight it?
Who could ever expect to fight it
When she builds that wall

I know the choice is made
I can tell I said
By your guilty face
And I never was one to fight it
How does anyone ever fight it?
(Ooh ooh oo oo oo ooh)
How does anyone ever fight?

You couldn't pin this one on me
You knew my thoughts so far as I can see
Ohh I say it's hopeless
But you make the call
'Cause I never was one to fight it
And if given the chance I guess
I'll learn to build that wall

Aaa aa aa aa ha ha ha ha
Ahh ah ah ahh ha ha
(Ooh ooh ooh)
Aaa aa aa aa ha ha ha ha
Build that wall
Aaa aa aa aa ha ha ha ha
(Ooh ooh ooh)
Build that wall
Aaa aa aa aa ha ha ha ha
Build that wall
(Ooh ooh)
Aaa aa aa aa ha ha ha ha
(Ooh ooh ooh)
Ooh ooh oo oo oo ooh
(Aaa aa aa aa ha ha ha ha)
Build that wall
(Build that wall)
Aaa aa aa aa ha ha ha ha
(Ooh ooh oo oo oo ooh)
Build that wall
Aaa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aaa
(Ahh aa aa aa)
Build
That
Wall

    General CommentSomeone you love just builds a wall around themselves so you can't talk any more. In this case she is reacting to a warning: "Don't ring that guy, it's only going to hurt you" but once she's made the call there is nothing you can do...or so it seems. (I am new to this: give me a chance!)
