Lyrics

Doorway (c) Matthews/Naismith

V1
Last night in the doorway, we stood so far apart
As it's ending angry, we doubt the wisdom of the start
Your hindsight's 20/20, and your vision can't be beat
But I'm struggling to understand why you're doing this to me

Ch
I'm sitting in the coffee shop, thinking that it's over and wondering why I never saw you cry ?
And how can you be rational and act as if it's nothing when it makes me feel like part of me has died ?
I'm missing vital information
Fighting with your lack of patience
Don't know what to do any more
So please don't close the door

V2
Last night in the doorway, I took a step to you
I guess I didn't need to, but it seem the thing to do
I know I wanted honesty, but maybe girl I'm crazy
And I can't decide what you're doing
Is it anger or just lazy ?

Ch
I'm sitting in the coffee shop, thinking that it's over and wondering why I never saw you cry ?
And how can you be rational and act as if it's nothing when it makes me feel like part of me has died ?
I'm missing vital information
Fighting with your lack of patience
Don't know what to do any more
So please don't close the door

Br
I'm missing opportunity by fighting to survive
Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one alive
I always see the doorway as the place I go to leave
I guess I'll have to step outside and finally start to breathe

Ch
I'm sitting in the coffee shop, thinking that it's over and wondering why I never saw you cry ?
And how can you be rational and act as if it's nothing when it makes me feel like part of me has died ?
I'm missing vital information
Fighting with your lack of patience
Don't know what to do any more
So please don't close the door
