You can't keep a love in
With windows and walls
Even twelve rooms connected
By marble floored halls

You can't keep a love in
Being scared it will cease
You can't see the big picture
While you're staring at the crease

Play it in any language
It's an old loser's game
Wisdom comes in all different ways
But this ignorance is all the same

One wants to go
One tries to stall
You can't keep a love in
With windows and walls

In the hour of the dead you walk the floor
Where the battle will be fought
You may not learn the lesson but
The lesson will be taught

The silence will not comfort you
When you speak the words will tell
The breaking of a spell

You can't keep a love in
With windows and walls
Build the beams higher
Nothing is solved

There's locks on the windows
Where the cats always curl
Through those locks you can't stop
A wild and raging world

In the hour of the dead you walk the floor
Where the battle will be fought
You may not learn the lesson but
The lesson will be taught

The silence will not comfort you
When you speak the words will tell
(When you speak the words will tell)
The breaking of a spell

You used to want everying
Now you want peace
If it can't be with him
Then within you at least

When love learns to run
Before it can crawl
You can't keep a love in
With windows and walls
