Walls - Barbra Streisand

Walls, high and low, thick and thin
They keep you out, they keep you in
Walls, narrow and wide, round or square
With warning signs "Watch out", "Beware"

Brick by brick they built them but it seems to me
Brick by brick they built them where they shouldn't be
We should be building bridges to a better day
Where no walls would stand in the way

Walls, here and there, everywhere
In every city, every town
We would have that better day
If all the walls came tumbling down

Brick by brick, at times they're of a different kind
Brick by brick, they built around the heart and mind
Sometimes lasting longer than the walls that are made of stone
Keeping us apart and alone

These are walls that we don't see
But we built between the you and me
Made of broken dreams and wounded feelings that go on
Like walls we wished to go away
Could we have ourselves that better day
If we took the chance to simply say that we forgive
And then we'd forget they'd be gone

Oh walls, here and there, everywhere
In every city, every town
We would have that better day
If all the walls came tumbling down
