About Too Many Walls

"Too Many Walls" is a song by British singer-songwriter Cathy Dennis. Released as a single from her album Move to This on September 23, 1991, the song became Dennis' fourth Top 10 hit on the U. S. pop chart, where it peaked at #8. Her other American Top 10 singles were: "C'mon and Get My Love" (officially credited to 'D Mob introducing Cathy Dennis'), #10 in 1990; "Just Another Dream", #9, also from 1990; and "Touch Me (All Night Long)", #2 from earlier in 1991. "Too Many Walls" also spent two weeks atop the U. S. adult contemporary chart. In the UK, the song was released in October and reached #17 on the British pop chart. In Australia, the song reached #57 on the Australian pop chart. The song lasted for 20 weeks on the Hot 100, even though it was last seen a few weeks before Nielsen SoundScan became part of the Hot 100, as well as the recurrent rule which made 20-week chart runs much more commonplace. (The bottom half of the Hot 100 became limited to the first 20 weeks.) "Too Many Walls" is a midtempo pop ballad and was co-written by Dennis and Anne Dudley, member of the avant-garde synthpop musical group The Art of Noise. The song was originally a composition of Dudley's with strings but no lyrics, until Dennis adapted the song and added words before it appeared on her debut album. The song was then remixed into a more radio-friendly version before being released as a single.

Wish on a rainbow is all I can do.
Dream of the good times that we never knew.
No late nights alone in your arms.
I'll dream on.  Living in wonder, thinking of you.
Still looking for ways to uncover the truth.
You're so young is all they can say.
They don't know, 
If I could change the way of the world I'd be your girl.
 
Too many walls have been built in between us.
Too many dreams have been shattered around us.
If I seem to give up they'd still never win.
Deep in my heart I know the strength is within.
 
Watching the others chances drift by.
They'll never discover these feelings I hide.
Deep inside I'm falling apart.
All alone with a broken heart.
Thinking in silence is all they allow.
These words still unspoken may never be found.
All these dreams one day will be mine.
They cross my mind.
My time has yet to come.  Until then.
Deep in my heart I know the strength is within.
 
Too many walls have been built in between us.
Too many dreams have been shattered around us.
If I seem to give up they'd still never win.
Deep in my heart I know the strength is within.
 
Too many walls have been built in between us.
Too many dreams have been shattered around us.
If I seem to give up they'd still never win.
Deep in my heart I know the strength is within.
 
Too many walls have been built in between us.
Too many dreams have been shattered around us.
If I seem to give up they'd still never win.
Deep in my heart I know the strength is within.
