Standing In The Doorway (April 1, 2017)

The light in this place is so bad 
It’s just making me sick in the head 
All the laughter is making me sad 
Even the stars have turned cherry red 
I’ve been riding the midnight train 
I got my heart locked in a lock and chain 

The ghost of our old love has not gone away 
It didn’t look like it will anytime soon 
You left me standing in the doorway crying 
Under the midnight moon 

The light in this place is so bad
Making me sick in the head
All the laughter is just making me sad
The stars have turned cherry red
I’m strumming on my gay guitar
Smoking a cheap cigar

The ghost of our old love has not gone away
Don’t look it like it will anytime soon
You left me standing in the doorway crying
Under the midnight moon

Maybe they’ll get me and maybe they won’t
But not tonight and it won’t be here
There are things I could say but I don’t
I know the mercy of God must be near
I’ve been riding the midnight train
Got ice water in my veins
I would be crazy if I took you back
It would go up against every rule
You left me standing in the doorway crying
Suffering like a fool
