Patty Loveless Higher Than The Wall Lyrics

(Michael Henderson/Christopher Stapleton)

There are walls made of paper, an' walls made of stone.
An' some, better made, out of livin' alone.
I built a wall that no-one could break down.
Locked up my heart where it couldn't be found.

You saw past my shackles an' let love unfold.
Showed me the truth from the lies I'd been told.
My heart was a prisoner, like no heart at all.
So your love reached higher than the wall.

Higher than the wall, a thousand feet tall.
High above the darkness where the blue shadows fall.
Yeah, your love reached higher, where it's better an' brighter.
Yeah, your love reached higher than the wall. (Wall, wall.)
Yeah, your love reached higher than the wall.

Now I'm wearin' freedom instead of those chains.
Empty reminders don't cause me no pain.
It's all gone away like the leaves in the Fall.
'Cause your love reached higher than the wall.

Higher than the wall, a thousand feet tall.
High above the darkness where the blue shadows fall.
Yeah, your love reached higher, where it's better an' brighter.
Yeah, your love reached higher than the wall. (Wall, wall.)
Your love reached higher than the wall.

Hey, hey.
