3 The Wall Song

What is to be done when someone’s whole life falls apart, and their foundations crumble?

Will they build walls, or open gates to let friends in; will they keep their faith in God or keep Him well out of the way?

Intro: E B7 E B7 E

E

I have built me a wall,

I have conquered it all,

A B7

And I don't need the world anymore.

E

I have buried my pain,

A

Till it rises again,

E B7 E

But inside me a little child cries.

A E

Let me love you, let your walls come tumbling down,

B7 A E

Little child run to me and be free.

E

I'll let no-one come in,

They may see how I grin,

A B7

But they won't see the pain in my eyes.

E

They won't understand how,

A

I'm invulnerable now,

E B7 E

But inside me a little child cries.

A E

Let me love you, let your walls come tumbling down,

B7 A E

Little child run to me and be free.

E

Friends are shadows long gone,

So I'll have to be strong,

A B7

And I'll drink all my sorrows away.

E

I'll keep building the walls,

A

Till' they're thick and they're tall.

E B7 E

But inside them a little child cries.

A E

Let me love you, let your walls come tumbling down,

B7 A E

Little child run to me and be free.
