"Four Walls" as written by and Calab Nott Joel Little....
You walked in and said, "I've got some news
I didn't say all I wanted to
You know I told you that I wasn't scared. Well, I lied."
You told me, "Babe I only think of you."
And I said, "All I've got is a bunch of sad stories."
And I told them all before the night was through
And we cried, oh, but we're here now
And I'm trying hard to make you love me but I don't wanna try too hard
And I'm trying hard to take it lightly but we're here now

Those four walls now are the only place that I can breathe out
And those four walls now are home
Those four walls now are the only place that I can feel
Those four walls now are home

I wanna make you feel how I feel when I'm listening to love songs
I wanna take you to the peak of everything that you are
You're everything I need tonight
And I'm trying hard to make you want me
But I don't wanna try too hard
I was thinking you got what you came for
But you're here now

Those four walls now are the only place that I can breathe out
Those four walls now are home
Those four walls now are the only place that I can feel
Those four walls now are home

Falling at the hand of a perfect man
Falling at the hand of a perfect man

Those four walls now are the only place that I can breathe out
Those four walls now are home
Those three words now are the only thing that came to save me
Those three words now are home

Falling at the hand of a perfect man

    General CommentWhen the song starts out he's just told her that he loves her or some version of the depth and intensity of his feelings for her. Maybe they started off as a casual thing? It sounds like they has a conversation about their relationship and he assured her that he wasn't afraid but couldn't bring himself to say exactly how deeply he feels for her. He finally gets the courage and tells her how he feels.
    You walked in and said, "I've got some news
    I didn't say all I wanted to
    You know I told you that I wasn't scared. Well, I lied."
    You told me, "Babe I only think of you."

    She explains she feels the same way and admits that she's scared too because of her past relationships. She goes on to say that she doesn't want to pressure him but she also wants him to love her. She's willing to let it evolve.

    And I said, "All I've got is a bunch of sad stories."
    And I told them all before the night was through
    And we cried, oh, but we're here now
    And I'm trying hard to make you love me but I don't wanna try too hard
    And I'm trying hard to take it lightly but we're here now

    To chorus to me, is about the four "walls" or chambers of his heart. That is where she can exhale. They have come to be a home for her. Their love is where she found her home.

    Those four walls now are the only place that I can breathe out
    Those four walls now are home
    Those three words now are the only thing that came to save me
    Those three words now are home

    She wants to tell him how much she feels for him. She's falling for him. Again, she reiterates she doesn't want to try too hard or force him, but she loves him too. She recalls the early days of their relationship "you're everything I need tonight" and "I was thinking you got what you came for" meaning she was trying to keep it light because she was unsure if it was just a physical thing with him. She didn't want to be the first one to say how she felt. She's relieved he did.

    I wanna make you feel how I feel when I'm listening to love songs
    I wanna take you to the peak of everything that you are
    You're everything I need tonight
    And I'm trying hard to make you want me
    But I don't wanna try too hard
    I was thinking you got what you came for
    But you're here now

    She repeats the chorus and says "these three words are the only thing that can save me". She recognizes that his love saved her.

    Falling at the hand of a perfect man
    Falling at the hand of a perfect man

    She admits that he is the perfect man for her and that she's "falling at his hand". Meaning she fell for him but he caught her because he fell for her too.

    I saw a related post on a different website and they have a quite opposite interpretation of this song...I'm not sure what they are referring to and I feel that the greater purpose is missed.
