"Up Against The Wall" as written by and Patricia Lynn Rothberg....
He's trying hard to keep control and lead the way.
He's finding all the perfect things to say to me.
I climb the stairs with only one thing on my mind.
To kick the habit of lost opportunity.

It's only natural to want what doesn't come.
I swiped away all of the pawns under my thumb.
But like the ending of a one-act play,
The curtain closes and the actors run away, and I'm

Up against the wall.
Wondering why I came at all
Yes I'm up against the wall.
Trying to disappear.

I look around and watch the world as it goes by.
Wondering how small, how small am I.
He makes a gesture to distract me from the thought.
It goes against most everything that I've been taught.

It's when you wake up and you can't got back to sleep.
It's when you wonder 'bout the company you keep.
It's when you wake up in the middle of your life.
You just can't cut it with the dull end of the knife, and I'm

Up against the wall.
Wondering why I came at all
Yes I'm up against the wall.
Trying to disappear.

You know they way you're rockin' makes you seem larger than life.
As you turn the key to your door, you're turning me on.
And my mind spins high above the world.
That's the way I feel!

It's only natural to want what doesn't come.
I swiped away all of the pawns under my thumb.
But like the ending of a one-act play,
The curtain closes and the actors run away, and I'm

Up against the wall.
Wondering why I came at all
Yes I'm up against the wall.
Trying to disappear.
Trying to disappear.
Trying to disappear.
