I'll try to keep myself open up to you
That's a promise that I made to love
When it was new just like Jericho
I said, "Let the walls come tumblin' down"
I said it like I finally found the way
To keep the good feelings alive
I said it like there was somethin' to strive for

I'll try to keep myself open up to you
And approve your self expression
'Cause I need that from you too
I need your confidence, baby
And the gift of your extra time
In turn I'll give you mine sweet darling
It's a rich exchange seems to me
It's a warm arrangement

Anyone will tell you
Just how hard it is to make and keep a friend
Or maybe they'll short sell you
Or maybe it's you
Judas, in the end
When you just can no longer pretend
That you're gettin' what you need
Or you're givin' out anythin' for them to grow and feed on

I'll try to keep myself open up to you
It's easier and easier to
Just like Jericho
The walls come tumblin' down
Fallin' on the ground and all the dogs go runnin' free
The wild and the gentle dogs
Kenneled in me
