Aimee Mann – Build That Wall lyrics
Intro:

(key of B)

Verse 1:

B E/G# C#m
She's been a long time on the phone
B E/G# C#m D#m
Courting disaster in an undertone
G#m D#m
She's feeling nostalgic
G#m C#m
And feeling that fall
E C#m D#m C#m G#m
How could anyone ever fight it
E C#m
Who could ever expect to fight it when she
A Em B
Builds that Wall

Verse 2:

Maybe it's one where time will tell B E/G# C#m
Maybe it's one where it's just fare-thee-well B E/G# C#m D#m
I hear her coming G#m D#m
As she walks down the hall G#m C#m
How could anyone ever fight it E C#m D#m C#m G#m
Who could ever expect to fight it when she E C#m
Builds that Wall A Em B

Bridge:

D# G#m G#m/F#
I know the choice is made
C#m G#m
I can tell, I said
C#
By your guilty face
E C#m C#m D#m C#m G#m
And I never was one to fight it
E B2 B2/A Em
How does anyone ever fight it

Verse 3:

You couldn't pin this one on me B E/G# C#m
You knew my thoughts so far as I could see B E/G# C#m
Well, I'd say it's hopeless G#m D#m
But you make the call G#m C#m
'Cause I never was one to fight it E C#m C#m D#m C#m G#m
And if given the chance I guess I'll learn to E C#m
Build that wall A Em B

Coda:

Ahhhhhh C#m D#m C#m C#m D#m C#m
Ahhhhhh Build that Wall C#m D#m C#m A Em B
Ahhhhhh Build that Wall C#m D#m C#m C#m D#m C#m
Ahhhhhh Build that Wall C#m D#m C#m A Em B
Ahhhhhh Build that Wall C#m D#m C#m C#m D#m C#m
Ahhhhhh Oooooooooo Build that Wall C#m D#m C#m A Em B
Ahhhhhh Build C#m D#m C#m A
That Em
Wall B
