These Walls

Teddy
I can’t believe what is in front of me
The water’s rising up to my knees
And I can’t figure out
How the hell I wound up here
Everything seemed okay when I started out the other day
Then the rain came pouring down
And now I’m drowning in my fears
And as I watch the setting sun
I wonder if I’m the only one

[Chorus]
Cause everybody tries to put some love on the line
And everybody feels a broken heart sometimes
And even when I’m scared I have to try to fly
Sometimes I fall
But I’ve seen it done before
I gotta step outside these walls

I’ve got no master plan to help me out
Or make me stand up for
All the things that I really want
You had me too afraid to ask
And as I look ahead of me
I cry and pray for sanity

[Chorus]

These walls can’t be my haven
These walls can’t keep me safe here
And now I guess I gotta let them down

Cause everybody tries to put some love on the line
And everybody feels a broken heart sometimes, yeah
Even when I’m scared I have to try to fly
Sometimes I fall
But I’ve seen it done before

I got to break out…
I got to break out…
I got to step outside these walls
Love outside these walls
I feel my heart breaking
But its a brand new day
I’m going down
I’m stepping out
I’m stepping outside
These walls
(I’ve seen it done before.. I’m walking on, I’ll walk it off, oh I’m moving on)
