These Four Walls

  • These four walls
    They whisper to me
    They know a secret
    I knew they would not keep
    It didn't take long
    For the room to fill with dust
    And these four walls came down around us

    It must have been something to send me out of my head
    With the words so radical and not what I meant
    Now I wait
    For a break in the silence 'cause it's all that you left
    Just me and these four walls again

    It's hard now to let you be
    I won't make excuses
    I've made my peace
    It didn't take long
    For me to lose the trust
    Cause these four walls
    Were not strong enough

    It must have been something to send me out of my head
    With the words so radical and not what I meant
    Now I wait
    For a break in the silence 'cause it's all that you left
    Just me and these four walls again

    Yeah
    It's difficult
    Watching us fade
    Knowing it's all my fault
    My mistake
    Yeah, and it's difficult
    Letting you down
    Knowing it's all my fault
    You're not around

    It must have been something to send me out of my head
    With the words so radical and not what I meant
    Now I wait
    For a break in the silence 'cause it's all that you left
    Just me and these four walls again

    Again

  • Trisha from Coon Rapids, MnJust because she didn't write the song ALL BY HERSELF, doesn't mean she didn't write it.
    She contributed, so she DID write it.
  • Hope from Naperville, IlCheyenne Kimball---so much better
  • Ashley from City, IaAnd Miley claims to have written all but 2 songs on her album, when Girls Just Want to Have Fun, Breakout, and THIS SONG aren't hers. Either she's too stupid to count or she's just a liar.
