"Baby Break It Down" as written by and Mick Jagger Keith Richards....
Baby break it down
Baby break it down
We've got a long way to go
Baby break it down
Baby break it down
We've got a long way to go

You're standing on your side
I'm standing on mine
It only needs one step
And you could be crossing the line
There's nothing between us
Or maybe too much
Whatever it is it's too fragile to touch

Baby break it down
Baby break it down
We got a long way to go
Baby break it down
Wrap your love around
Babe, you've got a long way to go

And who jumps the fences
And who builds the walls
Whoever takes chances must surely fall

Baby break it down
Baby break it down
Babe, you've got a long way to go
Baby break it down
You'll be safe and sound
You've got a long way to go
Babe, too far to go
Too far to go

There's no river running
That we can't cross
Does one or the other of us
Have to be the boss

Baby break it down
Baby break it down
Babe, you've got a long way to go
Baby break it down
Wrap your love around
A long way to go

Baby break it down
Wrap your love around
Babe, you've got a long way to go
Baby break it down
Baby break it down
Long way to go
Long way to go
You've got a long way to go

    General CommentVery underrated tune.

    This is about a relationship gone wrong. Mick pretty much places the blame on the other person. "And who jumps the fences? And who builds the walls?" sums it all up. In Mick's mind, he's going out of his way and 'jumping fences' for this person...but they just put up walls and keep him out. He still wants it to work though, and in the last verse, he's basically telling her that they should just quit playing games with each other and try to give it a chance.

    The whole song he's asking her to break her walls down and let him in.
