lyrics

building a wall by david verga

open the drawer and take out the rest of your life
what were they for, all those fast times you found?
do your stockings feel right? are your feet on the ground?
try as you might, you won’t make a sound

‘cause i’m building a wall
i’m building it tall
and i will rise to the top
there’s just no stopping me now

all laid out in your striking new pose
those critics are fools, they should see you alone
seated high on the bench, they’re all throwin’ stones
they’ve all written songs with no final notes

but i’m building a wall
i’m building it tall
and i will rise to the top
there’s just no stopping me now

old bill bailey, where are you going to?
oh my lady, where were you going to before you met me?
