Ripping Down The Wall

The dark seems to be closing in
No trace of light can penetrate
The barrier I have made
Every time someone broke my heart
I added a brick
Every time someone stabbed me in the back
I added another brick
Every time I remembered the past
I added another brick
The only way to let the light show through
Is to love me completely and true
When you tell me that you love me
One of the bricks fall
By the time you tell me how much you care
Half the wall isn’t there
You helped me to forget my past
And now the wall is hardly standing
And the vast darkness is leaving
The light is expanding
Growing every day
Thank you for making
The monster go away

I love how little seven year olds are running around asking for coffee. what do you need coffee for?
