      About "Standing in the Doorway"

      Lyrics for Bob Dylan - "Standing in the Doorway"

      I'm walkin' through the summer nights
      The jukebox playing low
      Yesterday everything was goin' too fast
      Today it's movin' too slow

      I got no place left to turn
      I got nothin' left to burn
      Don't know if I saw you if I would kiss you or kill you
      It probably wouldn't matter to you anyhow

      You left me standing in the doorway cryin'
      I got nothin' to go back to now
      The light in this place is so bad
      Makin' me sick in the head

      All the laughter is just makin' me sad
      The stars have turned cherry red
      I'm strummin' on my gay guitar
      Smokin' a cheap cigar

      The ghost of our old love has not gone away
      Don't look it like it will anytime soon
      You left me standin' in the doorway cryin'
      Under the midnight moon

      Maybe they'll get me and maybe they won't
      But not tonight and it won't be here
      There are things I could say, but I don't
      I know the mercy of God must be near

      I been ridin a midnight train
      Got ice water in my veins
      I would be crazy if I took you back
      It would go up against every rule

      You left me standin' in the doorway cryin'
      Sufferin' like a fool

      When the last rays of daylight go down
      Buddy, you're old no more

      I can hear the church bells ringin' in the yard
      I wonder who they're ringin' for?
      I know I can't win
      But my heart just won't give in

      Last night I danced with a stranger
      But she just reminded me you were the one
      You left me standin' in the doorway cryin'
      In the dark land of the sun

      I eat when I'm hungry, drink when I'm dry
      And live my life on the square
      And even if the flesh falls off of my face
      I know someone will be there to care

      It always means so much
      Even the softest touch
      I see nothing to be gained by any explanation
      There's no words that need to be said

      You left me standin' in the doorway cryin'
      Blues wrapped around my head
