Red doors, they weren’t there before.
Take ‘em down, turn ‘em round, hope they never leave ‘em there.
It’s what we meant before-----
You had your way, not anymore,
You’ve lost your way, to the red doors.
Red doors, they weren’t there before. (x3)
It’s not okay. You broke your pact.
You said you’d never leave us behind.
Red doors, they weren’t there before.
To the red doors, the red doors-----
Take ‘em down, turn ‘em round, hope they never leave ‘em there.
It’s what we meant before-----
You walked the path without regret,
You’ve changed your mind just to forget.
How could you? Break those red doors-----
Smashed and splintered like our dreams,
Broken nails in between.
Don’t lie, you lost your way----
You’ve lost your way, to the red doors.
Red doors, they weren’t there before. (x3)
To the red doors, the red doors----
Wish you had let things be,
Without opening the red doors.
Red doors, they weren’t there before. (x4) To the red doors, the red doors---


The author's comments:
This was actually written for a collaborative project to create a two song set and perform it with a band. It was accompanied by an electric guitar and a violin. But I won't tell you what this song means, because that's up to you to decide.
