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
