If These Walls Could Speak

(as performed by Shawn Colvin)


If these old walls, if these old walls could speak
 What a tale they'd have to tell
 Hard headed people raisin' hell
couple in love livin' week to week
 Rooms full of laughter, if these old walls could speak

If these old halls, if hallowed halls could talk
These would have a tale to tell
The sun goin' down and dinner bells
And children playin' at hide and seek
>From floor to rafters, if these old walls could speak

  They would tell you that I'm sorry 
  For bein' cold and blind and weak 
  They would tell you that it's only that I have a stubborn streak
If these walls could speak

If these old fashion window panes had eyes
I guess they would have seen it all
Each little tear and silent step fall
And every dream that we came to seek
And followed after, if these old walls could speak

They would tell you that I owe you
More than I could ever pay
Here's someone who really loves you
Don't ever go away
That's what these walls would say
