Text - Door Ajar

  • Door Ajar

    Door ajar
    Door ajar
    Door ajar

    I hit my head upon the pillow, hard
    I heard a noise from the boulevard
    And it made me go down
    I left the door to my room ajar
    Felt the rumble of the street-car
    And it spiraled me down

    If you could see me
    Swallowed in <strike>by</strike> darkness
    What would it matter
    Would it awaken
    Feelings forsaken
    Faded and scattered
    Would you come running
    If you could hear me
    Some way or another
    That’s what I’m thinking
    Watching the stars reflect in the gutter

    Door ajar
    Door ajar

    I hit my head on the pillow, hard
    I took the words that you said to heart
    And it made me feel down
    When I awoke it was dark outside
    Just a flicker from a traffic light
    And it signaled me down

    If you could see me
    Swallowed in darkness
    What would it matter
    Would it awaken
    Feelings forsaken
    Faded and scattered
    Would you come running
    If you could hear me
    Some way or another
    That’s what I’m thinking
    Watching the stars reflect in the gutter

    Door ajar
    Door ajar
    Door ajar
    Door ajar
    Door ajar

    <strike>And if you don’t want me now</strike>
    <strike>Then I doubt you ever will</strike>
    <strike>There is nothing I can add</strike>
    <strike>To clinch the deal</strike>
    <strike>And if you don’t see me now</strike>
    <strike>And you haven’t done so far</strike>
    <strike>In case you change your mind</strike>
    <strike>I’ll leave the door ajar</strike>

    <strike>Door ajar</strike>
    <strike>Door ajar</strike>
    <strike>Door ajar</strike>



    Die durchgestrichenen Wörter stehen im Booklet. Davor steht, was Morten tatsächlich singt.

    Was ist bloß mit der letzten Strophe passiert??? :o Die kann man doch nicht einfach weglassen, die ist wichtig! :motz:

  • Nein, eine "Panne" ist das sicher nicht. Aber ich finde, für den Sinn des Textes ist dieser letzte Absatz sehr wichtig (auch dafür, warum der Song "Door ajar" heißt). Gibt dem Ganzen auch noch eine leichte Hoffnung.
