You Could Make The Four Walls Cry

Album: You Can Do Anything (2008)
  • If the world was oblong-shaped
    Then you would make it square
    Just to let the whole world know
    That you were standing there

    If I had a chance all week
    To tell me how you feel
    You would make the four walls cry
    To let me know you're real

    It's a good job that I love you, girl
    And hold you close to me
    To let you think that I'm OK
    And never show I'm weak

    The time I spend in discontent
    And never leave your side
    Sometimes I can hold it down
    I can never hide

    The fact that I love you
    Oh, I love you

    You know I've been a friend of yours
    For God knows how long
    And all the stress that we've been through
    And still we carry on

    But when we get together, boy
    I'm nothing but a spark
    I've been right down that road you know
    I've tried it once before

    It's a good job that I love you now
    And hold you close to me
    To let you think that I'm OK
    And never show I'm weak

    The time I spend in discontent
    And never leave your side
    Sometimes I can hold it down
    I can never hide

    The fact that I love you
    Oh, I love you

    Now I'm magnetized again
    I'm filling up with blue
    It only ever leaves my paws
    When I'm close to you

    You make me start on everything
    If everything should stop.
    At least I know I've got you now
    And this thing can go on.

    'Cause I love you
    Oh, I love you Writer/s: ABIGAIL HARDING, DAVID MCCABE, RUSSELL PRITCHARD, SEAN PAYNE
