Barrier

Been watchin’ you, listenin’ to your velvet words
Funny how a little spark starts a fire
Seems like you’ve forgotten that
We were brothers in the fight
Like a pup at your heels
I wanna know what’s’ come between us

It’s a barrier
A wall of doubt, mistrust and confusion
A barrier
You’re throwin’ me a crust when I’m starvin’ for a meal
A barrier
I think i know you but i come away wonderin’
If we could only find a way to step across the line
And break the barrier

Yeah, you told me
Don’t wanna feel the labour pains
Just wanna see the child and keep on walkin’
But you’re in this too
Somehow I gotta get to you
All the jazzin’ is fine
Can’t we just cut it to the bone?

And break the barrier
This wall of doubt, mistrust and confusion
A barrier
I’m shakin’ my head as i hang up the phone
A barrier
I think i know ya but i come away wonderin’
If we could only find a way to step across that line

A touch of fear and a preconceived notion
Really don’t mean to accuse you
Can’t talk that way ‘coz it’s not in style
Just wanna reach you
A cloud of semantics in a sky of options
Don’tcha think i know your joy
And feel your pain
To go ten feet gotta walk a mile
Because i love you
I wanna get it right

Break the barrier
A wall of doubt, mistrust and confusion
A barrier
Together we could turn it into a door
A barrier
I think i know you well enough to say
Together we can find a way to step across that line

Break the barrier
And break the barrier
Break the barrier
And break the barrier
