lyrics

These old walls surround me
Protect me from my pain
Here I’m safely hidden
Addicted to my prison
Please be wary if you come

Hazy dawn arises
Fails to wake me from my sleep
Pull me from this foggy dream

Love won’t follow me
It’s taken everything
Love won’t follow me
I’m left with want and need

Saving broken mirrors
for a rainy day
Like a flowing fountain
Full of yesterdays
All the pieces fitted
Past mistakes admitted
Please forgive me if you come

I don’t know what to do
Want some love to come from you
I don’t know what to say
Need some love to come my way
I don’t know what to do
Want some love to come from you
I don’t know what to say
Need some love to come my way
I don’t know what to do

Oh, these walls surround me
Keep me wanting beauty
Forcibly reminding
Gently holding tightly
Break these walls around me

Love won’t follow me
It’s taken everything
Love won’t follow me
I’m left with want and need

Love won’t follow me
It’s taken everything
Love won’t follow me
I’m left with want and need
Love won’t follow me
