"Four Walls" as written by Cheyenne Kimball, Scott Cutler and Anne Preven....
These four walls
They whisper to me
They know a secret
I knew they would not keep
It didn't take long
For the room to fill with dust
And these four walls
Came down around us

Must have been something
Sent me out of my head
With these words so radical
And not what I meant
Now I wait for a break in the silence
'Cause it's all that you left
Just me and these four walls again

It's hard now to let you be
I won't make excuses
I've made my peace
It didn't take long for me to lose the trust
'Cause these four walls were not strong
Enough

Yeah, it's difficult
Watching us fade
Knowing it's all my fault
My mistake
Yeah, and it's difficult
Letting you down
Knowing it's all my fault
You're not around

    General CommentI think sometimes it's intimidating to be the first one to talk about what the song means, but here's my shot at it.

    I think it's how a relationship she had fell apart.

    They had a fight in the room (or a lot of fights), and she said things that she didn't mean, and that came out wrong. Then, the room was filled with silence, because the person left.

    She blames herself for the person leaving. She knows she has to move on, but it's hard for her to just let them be. The four walls of the room failed her. She lost trust in the walls because they weren't able to keep the person in the room.

    I also look at it as she made some kind of huge mistake that let someone else down. The walls held the secret, but eventually, the other person found out about it. So, because of her, they left.
