Standing At Your Door

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Robert Hunter

Here I'm standing at your door
Like so many times before
Since the time you let me in
I knew that I'd be here again

You know I know I've got no hope
Still I'm pulling at your rope
Once I thought I saw your face
Peeking through your window lace

I know I know I saw your face
Peeking through your window lace

Before I crawl back in the wall
Just what matters after all?
If the time and place are right
Why not get it straight tonight?

When tomorrow comes around
There'll be time to melt it down
See what your tests of fire prove
Right now I can hardly move

Then you say that I tell lies
Won't believe a word I say

If you want to hear a song
I'll sing the only one I know
Steal a change and cop a rhyme
That I heard somewhere before

But please don't ask me to admit
What I've been singing in the ditch
Where all these tunes that go around
Have all been driven in the ground

Might as well be telling lies
You don't hear one word I say

Don't even know if it's a love song
Don't even know your left from wrong
Fact, the only thing you do know
Is when it looks like time to go

So I'm standing at your door
Like so many times before
I know this time could be the last
If I don't get moving fast

I know I know I saw your face
Peeking through your window lace
I heard you say the time will come
When there won't be no place to run

Here I'm standing at your door
Like so many times before
Since the time you let me in
I knew that I'd be here again

I knew that I'd be here again
