Patty Loveless Higher Than the Wall Lyrics

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

[Chorus:]
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

[Chorus]

Hey, hey
