What If I Came Knocking Lyrics

What if I came knocking
On your front door some night?
Would you open the window
And drop me down the key?
What if I came knocking
On your bedpost that same night?
Would you open up your heart
Or try to get the best of me?

What if I came knocking
On your brain the next day
And ask for your truth and your love and your honesty?
Would you build up your big walls
And try to hide behind that smile
Or would you try to pull the wool right over me?

So what if I came knocking? (What if I came knocking?)
So what if I came knocking? (What if I came knocking?)
So what if I came kicking
And it scared you a little bit,
And I came on strong
Would you think
That there's something wrong with me?
Or could it be your fears
Of trying something real
Or just afraid to touch a...
A guy like me?

What if I came knocking? (What if I came knocking?)
What if I came knocking? (What if I came knocking?)
What if I came knocking
On your front door some night? Ah-hah.

So let's just say it worked out
Like a storybook dream
And we lived happily ever after.
Fa la la la.
But what if I came crying
After just a few weeks
And said I misread my heart,
This is not really meant to be? Yeah.

So if you hear some knocking
On your window tonight
You can bet that it's, uh, probably me.
But let it be known
That we're just a pair of tumbling dice
And the outcome of these crap shoots
Is hard to see.

So what if I came knocking? (What if I came knocking?)
So what if I came knocking? (What if I came knocking?)
So what if I came knocking
On your front door tonight? Ah-hah. (What if I came knocking?)
So what if I came knocking?
Knock, knock, knock, knock, knock, knocking (What if I came knocking?)
Kick, kick, kick (What if I came knocking?)
What if I came knocking
On your front porch tonight, tonight?
