barriers lyrics – david archuleta

hey, mmmm,

well i don’t know how to say this right,
and the words got me choking,
i keep hitting this wall,
it’s never gonna fall,
and we’re still broken,
this mountain we’ve been trying to climb,
it’s never ending,
just can’t do nothing, gotta do something,
cause if we don’t open up our eyes,
we’re just pretending,

well there’s a time for giving up,
didn’t wanna have to say it,
all we’re doing is building walls,
and now there’s too many barriers,

here we are lying here,
it’s our last final goodnight,
just because it feels so good,
no use pretending we’re alright,
too many locks (locks), too many cries (cries),
too many tears (tears), too many lies (lies),
too many barriers (barriers).
oh, just too many barriers.

now we’ve been draggin’ this whole thing out,
but i can’t wait any longer.
our love’s burnin’ down,
creepin’ in the doubt, we’re not gettin’ any stronger.
i hear you say that we’re doin’ okay,
but, baby, i don’t think so.
just can’t do nothin’; gotta do somethin’,
’cause if i don’t get into my car,
i won’t go very far.
well, there’s a time for givin’ up.
didn’t wanna have to say it.
all we’re doin’ is building walls.
now there’s too many barriers.

here we are, lyin’ here.
it’s our last final goodnight.
just because it feels so good,
no use pretending we’re alright.
too many locks (locks), too many cries (cries),
too many tears (tears), too many lies (lies),
too many barriers (barriers).
too many barriers.
just too many barriers

that we keep running into.
been tryin’, but we just can’t break through.
i know i’m gonna keep wishin’ i was with you,
but we just gotta stop…

here we are, lyin’ here.
it’s our last final goodnight.
just because it feels so good,
no use pretending we’re alright.
too many locks (locks), too many cries (cries),
too many tears (tears), too many lies (lies),
too many lies.
in a hurry to get somewhere,
and the road’s tryin’ to block ya, block ya (too many barriers)
and you feel like you’re nowhere,
’cause the world’s tryin’ to stop ya, stop ya (too many barriers)
in a hurry to get somewhere,
and the road’s tryin’ to block ya, block ya (too many barriers)
and you feel like you’re nowhere,
’cause the world’s tryin’ to stop ya, stop ya (too many barriers)
