lyrics

The Wall

I heard a record playing in the room next door
A song of purest feeling, his heart laid out on the floor
And every word he sang were words that I had fought to find
That song was all I needed
So I press my ear into the wall

It’s the same sound.
It’s the same sound that burns
It’s the same sound

Oh budge over
Press your ear to the wall
I’ll nudge over
Press my ear to yours

I heard a couple making love in the room next door
The way she moaned reminded me of me a year ago
When I loved a boy so dearly and we turned our beds into homes
Now that sound had no meaning so I pressed my ear into the wall

Oh budge over
Press your ear to the wall
I’ll nudge over
Press my ear to yours

Slowly tell me that you’re standing near…
