Higher Than The Wall

Patty Loveless

There are walls made of paper, and walls made of stone.
And some, better made, out of living 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 and 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 and brighter.
Yeah, your love reached higher than the wall. (Wall, wall.)
Yeah, your love reached higher than the wall.

Now I'm wearing 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 and brighter.
Yeah, your love reached higher than the wall. (Wall, wall.)
Your love reached higher than the wall.
