These four walls
They whisper to me
They know a secret
I knew they would not keep
It didn't take long
For the room to fill with dust
And these four walls came down around us

It must have been something to send me out of my head
With the words so radical and not what I meant
Now I wait
For a break in the silence 'cause it's all that you left
Just me and these four walls again

It's hard now to let you be
I won't make excuses
I've made my peace
It didn't take long
For me to lose the trust
'Cause these four walls
Were not strong enough

It must have been something to send me out of my head
With the words so radical and not what I meant
Now I wait
For a break in the silence 'cause it's all that you left
Just me and these four walls again

Yeah
It's difficult
Watching us fade
Knowing it's all my fault
My mistake
Yeah, and it's difficult
Letting you down
Knowing it's all my fault
You're not around

It must have been something to send me out of my head
With the words so radical and not what I meant
Now I wait
For a break in the silence 'cause it's all that you left
Just me and these four walls again

Again
These four walls again

    I think they are both very talented :] Cheyenne sounds more high pitched that's all. They both added their own flare which in my opinion makes both versions sound good :]

    Both of the versions are definitely amazing, though I like miley's version a tad bit more because of her deeper voice. Now miley couldn't pull off some of cheyenne's other songs, because cheyenne is so unique. But I definitely like this one! (:

    Well this song is not Miley Cyrus song. Cheyenne Kimball wrote this song. But Miley does do a good job at making it her own. To me the song means that she keep all these secrets to herself and she finaly loss it and told everyone.

    actually cheyenne used to have her own show on mtv years back and she said what it meant lol and it was when her and her bf broke up. they got in a fight-he broke up with her-and never spoke to her again. hence the "now i wait for a break in the silence cause it's all that you left". AND NO this is not my rendition it's the actually meaning of the song. i'm sure you can find the episode she says it in on dvd.

    and miley didn't write it she got permission from cheyenne kimball to make a cover of her song..but mileys version is 100% better hah
