Lyrics

Every time you look at me

I see something new

You got a face with a vista and a

Soul with a view

But every time I come inside

To take you by surprise

I feel the gates come crashing down

And the tension start to rise

 

Because I’m standing at the threshold

Of a long forgotten place

And I’m looking for an answer that I

Can’t see in your face

 

I look out your window

And I walk through your door

I stare up at your ceiling

And I dance upon your floor

But underneath this house there is

The key to something more

Let me come inside your cellar door

 

Put aside this peace of mind

And step into the ring

Come about, don’t show me out

No, show me everything

And if I walk through broken glass

To get to you tonight

Would you make it worth it

Would you show me your light

 

Because I’m standing at the border

And the guard won’t let me through

But I’ve got to make a break for it

And get myself to you

 

 

I look out your window

And I walk through your door

I stare up at your ceiling

And I dance upon your floor

But underneath this house there is

The key to something more

Let me come inside your cellar door

Would it make it easier on you

If you held the key

If I step lightly

If you follow me

 

Because I’m standing at the threshold

Of a long forgotten place

And I’m looking for an answer that I

Can’t see in your face

 

I look out your window

And I walk through your door

I stare up at your ceiling

And I dance upon your floor

But underneath this house there is

The key to something more

Let me come inside your cellar door
