"Jericho" as written by and Joni Mitchell....
I'll try to keep myself open up to you
That's a promise that I made to love
When it was new, "just like Jericho" I said
"Let the walls come tumbling down"
Said it like I finally found the way
To keep the good feelings alive
I said it like it was something to strive for

I'll try to keep myself open up to you
And approve your self-expression, 'cause I need that, funny, too
I need your confidence, baby
And the gift of your extra time
In return I'll give you mine, sweet darling
It's a rich exchange, seems to me
It's a warm arrangement

Anyone will tell you
Just how hard it is to make and keep a friend
Now, maybe they'll short-sell you
Or maybe it's you
Judas, in the end
When you just can no longer pretend
That you're getting what you need
Or you're giving off anything for them to grow and feed on

I'll try to keep myself open up to you
It gets easier and easier to do
Just like Jericho
Let the walls come tumbling down now
Fallin' on the ground
And all the dogs go running free
The wild and the gentle dogs
Kenneled in me
