If these walls could talk

Every where there’s secrets
some are dark, some light
Everywhere there’s secrets
Some best kept out of sight
Everywhere there’s secrets
Of the living and the dead
Everywhere there’s secrets
Some are better left unsaid

Would you listen to what you heard
If these walls could talk
Would you be scared to hear
If these walls could talk
Sounds of when you sat and cried
If these walls could talk
Of the day that Mama up and died
If these walls could talk

Look about and you will see
A secret in disguise
Look about and you will see
Just don’t look through your eyes
Look about and you will see
A secret, full of lies
Just look about and you will see
Where secrets soar and rise

Secrets buried in the walls
If these walls could talk
Of playing games in upstairs halls
If these walls could talk
Fighting behind bedroom doors
If these walls could talk
Would you listen to the open sores
If these walls could talk

Secrets hidden in plain sight
But absorbed by an old house
Secrets hidden in plain sight
Silent, quiet like a mouse
Secrets hidden in plain sight
of a hero or a louse
Secrets hidden in plain sight
Behind the walls of an old house

Scars and cuts and verbal stones
If these walls could talk
Could break our hearts and break our bones
If these walls could talk
Sounds of laughter and of moans
If these walls could talk
Would you hear the ancient, haunted tones
If these walls could talk
