"Stone wall, Stone fence" as written by and Meredith Marie Godreau....
Big open land you hold the weight of the air in your hands
Big open air you feel the tickle of the trees on your chest
And why'd you go and waste it
The things that you know are makin you a stone wall stone fence
Your stories so old you just tend to keep them
Long winding road
You got a secret but you won't share it
Big open land you hold the weight of the air in your hands
Big open air you feel the tickle of the trees on your chest
And why'd you go and waste it
The things that you know are makin you a stone wall stone fence
Your stories so old you just tend to keep them
Long winding road you got a secret but you won't share it

    General CommentThere are a few corrections that I would like to make to your lyrics:

    Big open land
    You hold the weight of the air in your hands
    Big open air
    You feel the tickle of the trees on your chest

    And why did you go and waste it?
    The things that you know are making you a stone wall, stone fence
    Your story's so old you just tend to keep them

    Long winding road
    You got a secret, but you won't share it

    Big open land
    you hold the weight of the air in your hands
    Big open air
    you feel the tickle of the trees on your chest

    And why did you go and waste it?
    The things that you know
    are making you a stone wall, stone fence

    Your story's so old you just tend to keep them
    Long winding road
    You got a secret, but you won't share it

    To me, this song is about creating a wall to keep people out in order to prevent yourself from getting hurt. But in doing so, you end up pushing people away and perpetuating your isolation. It's like a self-fulfilling prophecy for desertion and hopelessness.
