Wailing Wall

Wailing Wall

WRITTEN BY: CAMERON BLAKE

The breakroom’s finally empty
Put your feet up and get some rest
Let your hair down slow and gently
Feel it fall upon your chest
For you’ve tried on every uniform
For the one that fits the best
And you don’t recognize yourself at all

You don’t know how to cry yourself to sleep my love
You don’t know how to stand when you are weak
And you can’t pretend the loneliness is gone
So you take a seat beneath your wailing wall

Everybody seems so happy
And I hope that it is true
‘Cause when the world starts lookin’ ugly
I’ll need a different point of view
My daughter’s on my shoulders
I’ve got so much more to lose
So I keep workin’ hard so I don’t drop the ball

I don’t know how to cry myself to sleep my love
I don’t know how to stand when I am weak
And I take no comfort in this place at all
So I take a seat beneath my wailing wall

Wailing wall
Wailing wall
Where God and man can speak about the weight of it all
Brick by brick and stone by stone
You build your private altars
When you can’t seem to make it on your own

I don’t know how to call another’s bluff my love
I don’t know how to play when it gets rough
And I can’t pretend the loneliness is gone
So I take a seat beneath my wailing wall

Wailing wall
Wailing wall
Where God and man can speak about the weight of it all
Brick by brick and stone by stone
You build your private altars
When you can’t seem to make it on your own
