Standing in the Doorway (Version 1) lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm walking through the summer nights
The jukebox is playing low
Yesterday everything was going too fast
Today it's moving too slow
Too many silver spoons
Too much salt in my wounds
I don't know if I saw you if I would kiss you or kill you
It probably wouldn't make no difference to you anyhow [Refrain]
You left me standing in the doorway, crying
Nothing to go back to now
[Verse 2]
The light in this place is really bad
Making me sick in the head
All the laughter is just gettin' me sad
Even the stars have turned cherry red
I've been strumming on this gay guitar
Well, I'm smoking a cheap cigar
Well, the ghost of our old love has not gone away
It don't look it like it will anytime soon[Refrain]
You left me standing in the doorway, crying
Under the midnight moon[Verse 3]
Well, maybe they'll get me and maybe they won't
But not tonight and it won't be here
I know this horse that I'm riding on could throw me but it don't
The mercy of God must be near
It always means so much
Even the softest touch
I'd be crazy if I took you back again
It would go up against every rule[Refrain]
You left me standing in the doorway, crying
Suffering like a fool
[Verse 4]
When the last rays of daylight go down
Buddy, you'll roll no more
I can hear them silent bells in my head
And I wonder who they're ringing for
Don't pass me by
Give me liberty or let me die
Last night I was dancing with a stranger
But she just reminded me that you were the one[Refrain]
You left me standing in the doorway, crying
In the dark land of the sun[Verse 5]
I'll eat when I'm hungry, and I'll drink when I'm dry
And I live my life on the square
And even if the flesh falls off of my face
I know someone will be there to care
I've been riding on that midnight train
Got ice water in my veins
I see nothing to be gained by any explanation
There's no words that need to be said[Refrain]
Well, you left me standing in the doorway, crying
With the blues wrapped around my head
