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 these walls come tumbling down"
I said it like I finally found the way
To keep the good feelings alive
I said it like it was something to strive for

I'll try to keep myself open up to you
And approve your self expression, I need that, 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
It seems to me it's a warm arrangement

Anyone will tell you
Just how hard it is to make and keep a friend
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 getting what you need
Or you're giving out anything for them
To grow and feed on

I've try to keep myself open up to you
It gets easier and easier to do just like Jericho
Let these walls come tumbling down now
Let them fall right on the ground
Let all these dogs go running free
The wild and the gentle dogs kenneled in me
