Jericho - Joni Mitchell

    I'll try to keep myself open up to you
    That's a promise that I made to love
    When it was new
    "Just like Jericho" I said
    "Let these walls come tumbling down"
    I said it like I finally found the way
    To keep the good feelings alive
    I said it like it was something to strive for

    I'll try to keep myself open up to you
    And approve your self expression
    I need that, too
    I need your confidence, baby
    And the gift of your extra time
    In turn I'll give you mine
    Sweet darling, it's a rich exchange
    It seems to me
    It's a warm arrangement!

    Anyone will tell you
    Just how hard it is to make and keep a friend
    Maybe they'll short sell you
    Or maybe it's you
    Judas, in the end
    When you just can no longer pretend
    That you're getting what you need
    Or you're giving out anything for them to grow and feed on

    I'll try to keep myself open up to you
    It gets easier and easier to do
    Just like Jericho
    Let these walls come tumbling down now
    Let them fall right on the ground
    Let all these dogs go running free
    The wild and the gentle dogs
    Kenneled in me
