Come And Tear Down The Walls

 

Come And Tear Down The Walls


"It all started in Sweden, before the trip to the US on which I met Mark Alan. The phrase that kept coming back to me: 'Come and tear down the walls I've built up'. I was realizing, more and more, that the barriers between me and the father had been put there by me, not the other way around. He knows everything and is always working in me to meet my desire for deeper intimacy with him. When I brought these thoughts to Mark Alan, we landed on writing a simple song about turning our hearts to the father." (Jenny Wahlström)

VERSE
Come and tear down the walls I've built up
Every wall I've built up
Every wall I've built up
Cause you deserve every piece of my heart
Every piece of my heart
Every piece of my heart 

PRE CHORUS
Lord, I am trusting that you are a faithful father
And all that you have, it is good
You're a generous giver
Your love's like no other
Won't you come and break through to me

CHORUS
Over and over and over again
I am bringing my heart to you with open hands
Closer and closer, you're drawing me in
As the depths of my heart lay before you again
