"Western Wall"
(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 dont 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
