"Walls" as written by Chad Everett Gilbert and Lisa A. Loeb....
Fifteen hours I've been staring at these walls,
waiting for the call that never comes
I thought I had it figured out
Giving you the benefit of doubt

[CHORUS] Every day you build the wall
and I'm trying to break through
Brick by brick I'll tear it down
until I reach the other side and you
You made us prisoners
and I'm trying to set us free
But the final stones between us
could be the very ones placed there by me

Fifteen months I've been staring at the wall,
waiting for the day that never comes
I placed my faith in someone else
What did you promise to yourself?
It's turned to dust
Did you build it just to see
who cared enough to try to tear it down?

Fifteen years I've been trapped behind this wall,
waiting for the change that never comes
Still I try to open up the door,
but it's been oh so long, I can't recall the other side anymore
I'll be waiting
I will wait for you
I'll be waiting
I'll still be waiting

    General CommentIt's about communication issues within a relationship. The longer you let it go, the more difficult it becomes to fix it. Eventually you reach a point where you can't even remember what it was like when it was normal.

    Outstanding tune, perhaps my favorite song by these guys. What a bass line.
