Western Wall

This song is by Emmylou Harris and appears on the album Western Wall - The Tucson Sessions (1999).

(Rosanne Cash)

I stand here by the western wall
Maybe a little of that wall stands inside of us all
I shove my prayers in the cracks
I've got nothing to lose no one to answer back.

All these years I've brought up for review
Wasn't taught this but I learned something new
And to answer the distance call
At the western wall.

I've got a heart full of fear
And I offer it on this alter of tears
Red dust settles deep in my skin
I don't know where it start and where I begin.

It's a crumbling pile of broken stones
It ain't much but it might be home
If I ever loved a place at all
It's the western wall.

I don't know if God was ever a man
But if she was I think I understand
Why he found a place to break his fall
Near the western wall...
