Standing in the Doorway
- 43 Views
I'm walkin' through the summer nights Jukebox playing low Yesterday everything was goin' too fast Today it's moving too slow I got no place left to turn I got nothing left to burn Don't know if I saw you If I would kiss you or kill you It probably wouldn't matter to you anyhow You left me standin' in the doorway cryin' I got nothing to go back to now Maybe they'll get me, and maybe they won't But not tonight and it won't be here There are things that I could say but I don't I know the mercy of God must be near I've been ridin' the midnight train I got ice water in my veins I would be crazy if I took you back It would go up against any rule You left me standin' in the doorway cryin' Sufferin' like a fool When the last rays of daylight go down Buddy you're older no more I can hear church bells ringin' in the yard I wonder who they're ringin' for Oh I know I can't win But my heart, it just won't give in I see nothin' to be gained by any explanation There are no words that need to be said You left me standin' in the doorway cryin' Blues wrapped around my head
