Stones Throw

(VERSE)

So baby do you hear me callin’, put your ear to the road

I didn’t build these walls to keep you out

I built them to see if you cared enough

To break them down

To break them down

 

(CHORUS)

But sometimes when those angels call

The sounds so sweet the devil starts to sing

'Cause the faster you rise the harder you fall

And I’d be lyin’ If I said my faith don’t come

My faith don’t come and go

Like the walls when they crumble down

When they crumble 

They crumble down

 

(VERSE)

So I’m cleanin’ out my closet baby

It's full of sticks and stones

Yea the same ones that broke my bones

That broke my bones

 

And there’s a reason nothing hangs on my walls

But that paint, that hides my shame 

Of any picture frame that shows your face

Yea that shows your face

 

(CHORUS)

So God please make an angel fall

Stick around awhile and sing sad songs with me

‘Cause the faster you rise the harder you fall

And I’d be lyin’ If I said my faith don’t come

My faith don’t come and go

Like the walls when they crumble down

When they crumble

They crumble down

 

(OUTRO)

Well I pray for the day to take me

Lick my wounds and heal me

I don’t know how I made it through the year

 

I picked up that glass of Whiskey

I wake up early in the morning 

The breath of God has never felt so near

So I pray for the day to take me

Lick my wounds and heal me

Don’t know how I made it through the year

 

I put down that glass of Whiskey

I wake up early in the morning 

The breath of God has never felt so near

When you’re a Stone’s Throw from here

When you’re a Stone’s Throw from here

When you’re a Stone’s Throw from here
