​Keepin' Up de Fences

This song is by Caravan and appears on the album The Album (1980).

Standing in the hall waiting for a call, trying to keep a smile on my face
Fell out of a dream that nearly had me screaming at night all over the place
And I was calling everywhere, but I can get no answer
There isn't anybody here, there's no answer

Then out in the night, tried to get back, couldn't get it out of my head
Everywhere it seemed, was followed by a dream and a voice that was clearly said
"You won't escape from me tonight, you know we've got your number
You are the next in line my friend, got your number"

Gotta stay awake tonight boy
Gotta find a way to fight back
Gotta keep a line of decencies
Gotta keep up my defences

Gotta be a song, a face by the dawn, it seemed to be calling me
How'd it started goin' he said that he could show me a way that I could shake it free
Didn't have a voice, didn't have a choice, and my head felt like dynamite
Anymore but now it felt like my blow to a thousand pieces in the night

Oh, gotta help me now, I need find the answer
There isn't anybody here, there's no answer
Oh, gotta help me now, keep a line of decencies
If you will only keep up my defences
