My Back Door Lyrics

When I was a child
I dreamed like a child of wonder
With my back in the grass
My eyes to the sky to see
I believed in the stars
I knew they cast a spell that I was under
With my fingers in the dirt
I was part of the earth
Every living thing was part of me

But it's gone, it's gone
It's gone, it's gone, gone
I can't feel it
I can't feel it
Must've found a way out my back door
Must've run away out my back door
Because it's gone, gone, gone

Then I fell in love
Love gave me a shot of pure desire
There was nothing else like this
This unimagined bliss this ecstasy
Deep inside the night
I believed I saw the light ignite a fire
And it burned into the dark
It burned deep inside my heart
I thought it would burn eternally


So I run into the street
And I'm shouting into the phone
Asking everyone I meet
I say have you seen it on my doorstep
Did you see it in my car
Have you seen it in the alley
Was it on the back of some guitar
Is it sleeping in the hallway
Does it cry all night alone
Is it selling itself for money
Does it want, does it want to come home

Then I saw the world
Wounded deep and curled up on my sidewalk.
With the mouths all white and pale
Telling all their tales reality
So I picked up a sign
And I found a place in line and I shouted no talk
The men all painted proud
Their words empty and loud
Are trying hard to sell my dream

They tell me it's gone, gone
gone, gone
But I can feel it
Oh, I wanna feel it
I can't let it run away out my back door
If I look out there every day
