"Barriers" as written by Steve Mc Ewan, Stephen Alan Kipner and Wayne Wilkins....
Hey, Mmmm

Well I don't know how to say this right
And the words got me choking
I keep hitting this wall
It's never gonna fall
And we're still broken
This mountain we've been trying to climb
It's never ending
Just can't do nothing, gotta do something
'Cause if we don't open up our eyes
We're just pretending

Well there's a time for giving up
Didn't wanna have to say it
All we're doing is building walls
And now there's too many barriers

Here we are lying here
It's our last final goodnight
Just because it feels so good
We're used to pretending we're alright
Too many locks (locks), too many cries (cries)
Too many tears (tears), too many lies (lies)
Too many barriers (barriers)
Oh, just too many barriers

Now we've been draggin' this whole thing out
But I can't wait any longer
Our love's burnin' down
Creepin' in the doubt, we're not gettin' any stronger
I hear you say that we're doin' okay
But, baby, I don't think so
Just can't do nothin'; gotta do somethin'
'Cause if I don't get into my car
I won't go very far
Well, there's a time for givin' up
Didn't wanna have to say it
All we're doin' is building walls
Now there's too many barriers

Here we are, lyin' here
It's our last final goodnight
Just because it feels so good
We're used to pretending we're alright
Too many locks (locks), too many cries (cries)
Too many tears (tears), too many lies (lies)
Too many barriers (barriers)
Too many barriers
Just too many barriers

That we keep running into
Been tryin', but we just can't break through
I know I'm gonna keep wishin' I was with you
But we just gotta stop...

Here we are, lyin' here
It's our last final goodnight
Just because it feels so good
We're used to pretending we're alright
Too many locks (locks), too many cries (cries)
Too many tears (tears), too many lies (lies)
Too many lies
In a hurry to get somewhere
And the road's tryin' to block ya, block ya (too many barriers)
And you feel like you're nowhere
'Cause the world's tryin' to stop ya, stop ya (too many barriers)
In a hurry to get somewhere
And the road's tryin' to block ya, block ya (too many barriers)
And you feel like you're nowhere
'Cause the world's tryin' to stop ya, stop ya (too many barriers)

    General Commentarchuletta has dome it again

    just one of those songs you could listen to over and over and never get tired of it
    <33

    welll in my opinion it sounds like this song is about a couple who broke up before eaither of them were ready. now they wanna get back together but don't know how, they "can't do nothing; gotta do something" and theres "no use pretending they're all right" and now that they've put it off for so long, its gonna be hard getting bak together because now there's "too many barriers" they've created between each other

    General Commentamazziiinngg song :)

    i think its about david in a relationship where theres to many barriers in their lives together and too many issues. David wants to break up but the girl thinks they are doing fine....but "just cant do nothing gotta do something if we dont open up our eyes we're just pretending. well theres a time for giving up...".
    also their relationship isnt growing or getting ay stronger and they are both just holding each other back.
    thats how i interepret it :) haha
