I wrote this song in late January  in response to current events.

Lyrics

My Fence and My Neighbor - Cosy Sheridan

When the neighbors first moved in

I’m the one who built the fence

I’m the kind who can hold out her hand

if I know my line of defense

 

We are living in interesting times

the sky falls everyday

I used to think my fence

could make the world go away

 

CH

This morning all I know

is I want to fall down and cry

this morning I don’t need my fence

I need my neighbor on the other side

 

I’ve seen my neighbor with her children in the morning

driving them to school

I’ve seen her play a game in the driveway

she knows how to set and bend a rule


I don’t know that much about her

but I’ve dropped in and we’ve talked at her store

and each time I come away

wanting to know a little bit more

 

This morning all I know

is I want to fall down and cry

this morning I don’t need my fence

I need my neighbor on the other side

 

I’m not the first one to a protest

I’m the last one with a sign

I mostly want to be left in peace

to make my pretty designs

 

BR

I don’t know from trade agreements

I don’t understand all I hear

but I wasn’t certain when the neighbors moved in

now I am glad they are here

 

 

This morning all I know

is I want to fall down and cry

this morning I don’t need my fence

I need my neighbor on the other side
