"Walls" as written by and Ryan Adams....
These are the walls
Walls are empty as me
And this is the storm
Looks like it's gonna hold
Yeah, nobody knows
Who they are around here anymore
Cigarettes and some beers
Then it's back in the car [???]

Ain't it funny how we forgot who we were through the years
Put your fist through the wall cryin' television tears
Maybe I had something nobody saw
Blame it on the wall

Well the rain's gonna come
Come and wash away all of our sins
And if the damn doesn't break
Go and we'll wash it away with some gin
Cause they got money to make
And I've always got a reason to go
Sheets don't move from the bed
My head don't move from the floor

Ain't it funny how we forgot who we were through the years
Put your fist through the wall cryin' television tears
Maybe I had something nobody saw
Blame it on the wall

Ain't it funny how we forgot who we were through the years
Put your fist through the wall cryin' television tears
Put your fist through the wall cryin' television tears
Put your fist through the wall cryin' television tears
Put your fist through the wall cryin' television tears
Put your fist through the wall cryin' television tears
Yeah . . . yeah . . . yeah
Oh . . . oh

    General CommentThis song is great. A Song about looking back at life, finding out that you should have been more open about who you were, being to reserved."Maybe I had something nobody saw,Blame it on the wall"

    Lyric CorrectionA few corrections:

    These are the walls
    "Walls our emptiness made"
    "Yeah, and this is the storm"
    Looks like it's gonna hold
    Yeah, nobody knows
    Who they are around here anymore
    Cigarettes and some beers
    "Then it's back in the car to the store"

    Ain't it funny how we forgot who we were through the years
    Put your fist through the wall cryin' television tears
    Maybe I had something nobody saw
    "Blame it on the walls"

    Well the rain's gonna come
    Come and wash away all of our sins
    And if the damn doesn't break
    "Going to wash it away with some gin"
    Cause they got money to make
    And I've always got a reason to go
    Sheets don't move from the bed
    My head don't move from the floor

    Ain't it funny how we forgot who we were through the years
    Put your fist through the wall cryin' television tears
    Maybe I had something nobody saw
    "Blame it on the walls"

    Ain't it funny how we forgot who we were through the years
    Put your fist through the wall cryin' television tears
    Put your fist through the wall cryin' television tears
    Put your fist through the wall cryin' television tears
    Put your fist through the wall cryin' television tears
    Put your fist through the wall cryin' television tears
    Yeah . . . yeah . . . yeah
    Oh . . . oh
