The Door


Music & lyrics by Jess Pillmore


 


It’s the neighborhood that haunts you.


Ghosts in houses that never die.


Tiny trees now loom beyond you


A marker showing your wasted time.


Stray cats stare as if they know you


“Oh now, look how’s back for more.”


All of this harshly reminds you


It’s craziness to be standing…


 


            At his door.


 


He’s as handsome as you remembered.


You hope that’s pleasant surprise in his eyes.


He says, “I don’t know whether to hit or kiss you.”


You say, “Either one’s alright,


Just let me past your doorstep.


Years of explaining to do.”


He says, “I don’t want to hear your excuses


I just want to take a look at you.”


 


            And he opens the door.


 


Now there you are inside his kitchen.


Can’t decide whether to sit or not.


He stares expectantly waiting


But the door was as far as you thought.


And then from around the corner


Comes an unexpected pair of curls.


She says, “Where go you daddy?”


And your life suddenly swirls as you…


 


            Reach for the door.


 


It’s the moment you couldn’t plan.


They’re the seconds you always regret.


It’s the “what if” and the “Why not me?”


That makes every other move useless.


Here’s your chance to turn it all around.


Tell him the truth on why you never settled down.


Second chances are worth fighting for


So do you stand in this moment or…


 


            Do you run out the door... again?


 


It’s the neighborhood that haunts you.


Ghosts in houses that never die.


Tiny trees now loom beyond you


A marker showing…


A marker showing your wasted time.
