BACK AGAINST THE WALL
C. SHIROCK / PAP SHIROCK

I remember standing still
Rushing water around our feet
I remember everything but now
It’s harder than it has to be

Hard times you came back
Our time, you told me to be strong
Hard times you came, we’re running still
We’re back against the wall

All this time I was waiting for your love
You told me to be strong
All this time I was waiting for your love
But we’re back against the wall

Take me to the river bed
And drown me in your touch
It seems all of the hardest things
Are the only ones, worth our love now

Hard times you came back
Our time, you told me to be strong
Hard times you came, we’re running still
We’re back against the wall

All this time I was waiting for your love
You told me to be strong
All this time I’ve been waiting for your love
But we’re back against the wall

Could you stay until dawn
We’re hurt but you could stay until dawn

All this time I was waiting for your love
You told me to be strong
All this time I’ve been waiting for your love
But we’re back against the wall

(All this time I’ve been waiting
I’m still waiting Father
Been waiting since the day I was born)

You know I never want to see you lonely
You know I never want to see you cry
All I ever wanted was to love you
All I’ve ever seen was through your eyes
But we’re back against the wall
