Sara Bareilles Door Number Three Lyrics

Door number two

It’s for you, little lady

Is it all that you dreamed of?

How, if I knew, would’ve been there waiting

I’d have screamed out and jumped up

Now here I am

With my feet on the sand

And a body that won’t move

The tide’s coming in

And I’m bound for a swim

In a pair of cement shoes

He takes what he can, what he wants

Doesn’t matter if it’s ever been given

I took the bait and a chance on a man

Sold by the boy that he lived in

And I was wrong to believe that strength makes you strong

And I had hope in a change I would see in us both

And now I’m heavy

And he lifts me, but never once carried

Door number two I’ve already walked through

Ask me the question

Who coulda guessed I’d be here at this crossroad?

Plain to be seen that it’s all up to me

I’m no longer alone, though

Nothing’s changed

And I see it more every day

Nothing moves

It’s a game to be played and to lose

And now I’m heavy, unsteady

But maybe I’m getting ready

And this might catch fire and char this ground

I might lift this up

To only be the one who’s gonna get let down

Will I be enough to get this on its way to find some higher ground?

Before the waters rush

I’ve got to make a change or else I know I’ll drown

Baby, look around

Door number two I’ve already walked through

I wanna see what’s behind door number three
