    Default Climbing the walls..

    Dear teacher...
    Would you please be so kind as to give a more in-depth example of what "to climb the walls" means as an idiom ?
    Thanks,

    Inquirer75.

    If someone is climbing the walls, they are very annoyed or frustrated and unable to keep still.

    Hi, I'm not a teacher, but...

    Couldn't this be an example?

    It's the lyrics of the song called "Climing The Walls" by Backstreet Boys.
    It's a very beautiful heartrending song about a person "climbing the walls".

    If you would like to listen to it, it's in the album "Never Gone"!
