doorway lyrics – civil twilight

doorway

cold lips, cold hands,
cold feet on the street
there’s no shelter from
the heart’s beat
faster and faster,
the winds blow down from the north,
sweeping these streets
like ghosts on a march to war
a march to war

outside, there’s a silhouette,
changing her name,
changing her face
every time i look away
we sway in the yellow light
with no more strength to fight

so many dreams that fade away,
so many lives we just can’t save
if you wanted this so bad,
then why do we stand like we do
in the doorway?

come in, come in,
come in, come in,
come in, come in

[chorus:]
come in,
i never wanted anything like i want you
come in,
i never wanted anything like i want you

like i want you…

so many dreams that fade away,
so many lives we just can’t save
if we wanted this so bad,
then why do we stand like we do
in the doorway

if this is it, then why do i wait?
all tangled up in the strings of fate
if i wanted this so bad,
then why do i stand like i do?

[chorus]

come in, come in, come in,
come in, come in, come in,
come in, come in, come in,
come in, come in, come in
