The Verve - Knock On My Door lyrics

She knew my feelings were tangled and frayed
She took me into a windblown alleyway
She showed me what a boy should see
I'll thank her till the day that I die

So here we go
No knock on my door, baby
Till you see what living has done to me
And I'm sure that life means more than this

I took her to a room and I showed her myself
She made me feel proud and respectful
There's nothing that this girl won't do for me
For that I've gotta thank her, I mean it

So here we go
A face in the crowd
Jump up, then jump down
Baby, can you see through me?

Sure, I've been here before
No knock on my door
No love in the car
Baby, please be my star
Sure, I've seen it before
No knock on my door
Love in the car can be painful, I know
Cry, I've cried every night
I need to hold you tight
Oh, but can you see me?
Knocking down your door
Sure, there's times I have crawled
And there's times I have dreamed
Oh, but it seems that, must you need, my love?
And I never seem to put it out, my love

And I'm shaking
Yeah, I'm shaking
And I'm shaking
Yeah, I'm shaking
