Walls!!?



  • Just a piece I came up with yesterday, very raw recording - just looking for tips on the songwriting. Thanks :)

    Recorded live take of vocals and guitar in one mic and harmonies added in post - so very raw/rough again.

    Lyrics:
    Aren’t you tired on building
    boxes to put people in
    Judging by names and skins
    and places where lives begin

    Aren’t you tired
    Aren’t you lonely
    Looking out from within
    It all looks so exhausting
    Your compartmentalising

    How would you feel
    To be defined
    Do you know of the things we could achieve
    If you’d only open your mind

    And, Let down your walls
    Let people in
    Let down your walls
    Let love win

    Are you scared of what you don’t know
    Of the things that you’ve been told
    Ignorance is blissful
    But kindness defeats it all

    How would you feel
    To be defined
    Do you know of the things we could achieve
    If you’d only open your mind

    Don’t build a wall
    Walls don’t solve a thing
    Please don’t build a wall
    Walls solve nothing

    So let down your walls
    Let people in
    Let down your walls
    Let people in, Let Love win, Let people in,
    Let love win, Let people in
