I'll try to keep myself open up to you   That's a promise that I

made to love when it was new  "Just like


333200
Jericho," I said, "let these walls come tumbling


222222       777777
down."  I    said it like I'd finally found the


333333                            
way to keep the good feelings a-   


555555
live  I said it like it was something to strive for

Anyone will tell you just how hard it is to make and keep a


777777       xx9999   xx7777   xx9999
friend


333000
Maybe they'll short-sell you or maybe it's you


222222
Judas in the end when you 


777777                   333333
just can no longer pre-  tend that you're getting what you


555555
need, or you're giving out anything for them to grow and feed on

I'll try to keep myself open up to you   


555555
It gets easier and easier to do  Just like

333200
Jericho Let these walls come tumbling 

222222
down now  Let them 


777777
fall right on the ground


333333
Let all these dogs go running free


555555
The wild and the gentle dogs


777777
Kennelled in me ...
