If these old walls could talk, I'd be a sad man
She'd left me long ago if she knew the things I did back then
No, they ain't said a word, stood silent through it all
I'd be a lonely man if these old walls could talk

This old house of ours, it's made of stone, but it's built on sand
And these four walls, they are my best friends
Been keepin' all my past locked deep inside
No one will ever know all those things I did so long ago

I've been runnin', tryin' to hide from yesterday
But there's just no need, I know my secret's safe

If these old walls could talk, I'd be a sad man
She'd left me long ago if she knew the things I did back then
No, they ain't said a word, stood silent through it all
I'd be a lonely man if these old walls could talk

They stood every storm those long, cold winter nights
They kept us warm holdin' back the rain
Not even the winds of change could blow 'em down
Yeah, we're on solid ground

If these old walls could talk, I'd be a sad man
She'd left me long ago if she knew the things I did back then
No, they ain't said a word, stood silent through it all
I'd be a lonely man if these old walls could talk

They've stood the test of time, never let me down
I put it all behind me, they remind me I'm on shaky ground
Won't let me forget

If these old walls could talk, I'd be a sad man
She'd left me long ago if she knew the things I did back then
No, they ain't said a word, stood silent through it all
I'd be a lonely man if these old walls could talk

Yeah, I'd be a lonely man

If these old walls could talk, I'd be a sad man
She'd left me long ago if she knew all those things I did back then
