About Come Inside

"Come Inside" is a song by British pop group Thompson Twins, released in 1991 as the lead single from their eighth studio album Queer. It was written and produced by Alannah Currie and Tom Bailey. The single peaked at No. 56 in the UK and spent four weeks on the chart. The single also peaked at No. 7 on the US Billboard Dance Music/Club Play Singles Chart. The single had a music video filmed to promote it. Upon release in the UK, "Come Inside" was supported by various techno-inspired singles under the moniker of Feedback Max to disguise the identity of the band to club DJs. It reached No. 1 on the UK Dance Chart, but once the moniker's true identity was revealed as the Thompson Twins, sales dropped and the album Queer was not given a UK release. The song was featured in a 1991 Beverly Hills 90210 episode.

I can't find my way out of this place
I'm crawling on the floor
If the party's over, why won't you tell me?
I don't see you dancing any more

Well when all the doors are open wide
I'll be yours and maybe you'll be mine
So close your eyes; kiss the sky
The door is open won't ya come inside

Well can you hear the wind? It's telling lies
It happens all the time
Can you see the faces, seraphim eyes
They make me want to cry


Come inside, come inside
Well, I could dive in deep or float on by
It doesn't matter to me, no
''cause one way or another
I'm gonna get myself right out of this dream

When all the doors are open wide
I'll be yours and maybe you'll be mine
So cover your eyes; kiss the sky
The door is open, so come inside
