about

Tallest Walls builds from sparse beginnings, but explodes with a joyously melodic chorus, delivering an undeniable feel-good feeling.

lyrics

[Verse 1]
First light, line of sight
Staring through the wind
Feel like time is undefined
Eyes are getting dim

[Pre-Chorus]
The harness breaks and seals your fate
But still you're feeling fine
When morning calls the tallest walls fall
In this world of mine

[Chorus]
I’m stuck up here above the clouds
I know in time I’ll be shot down
I fly too high, my feathers melt
But while it lasts there’s nothing else

[Verse 2]
The show you steal was never real
A figment of your mind
A swollen head leaves you for dead
Not what you thought you'd find

[Pre-Chorus]
The harness breaks and seals your fate
But still you're feeling fine
When morning calls the tallest walls fall
In this world of mine

[Chorus]
I’m stuck up here above the clouds
I know in time I’ll be shot down
I fly too high, my feathers melt
But while it lasts there’s nothing else

[Bridge]
Here I am, let me in
I’m still waiting for you
I’ve come so far, I’ve changed my skin
Not going back now

[Chorus]
I’m stuck up here above the clouds
I know in time I’ll be shot down
I fly too high, my feathers melt
But while it lasts there’s nothing else
