At the Door

Twenty thousand feet - the engines giving

Ready to wave goodbye to the land of the living

Hole opened in the clouds - as the plane comes roaring down 

You wanna talk about when shit gets real

 

Old man sitting next to me is trying to make his peace

He’s saying, “O father, I should have been a better father please, forgive me”

Young woman sitting cross the aisle is screaming, “who’s going to raise my child?”

Strange, when you’re staring helpless at the floor, what don’t matter anymore?

 

I wasn’t thinking about the gas bill or the mortgage

I wasn’t thinking about my bank account or driving around in Porsches 

All I could think about is the way I left and the last words I said to you

And how I wish they’d been I love you 

If it matters anymore

Because the Wolf is at the door 

 

I said Lord; I’ll start giving a damn

If you take me back to the land of the living again

But if you’re going to take me now 

Could you let her know somehow?

All the little things we were fighting about before

They don’t matter anymore

 

I wasn’t thinking about the tax bill or the mortgage

I wasn’t thinking about my bank account or driving around in Porsches 

All I could think about is the way I left and the last words I said to you

And how I wish they’d been I love you 

If it matters anymore

 

I wasn’t thinking about the tax bill or the mortgage, honey no

I wasn’t thinking about my bank account or driving around in Porsches 

All I could think about is the way I left and that I hope she knows the truth

Because heaven know that I still love you 

If it matters anymore

 

But that plane came down the runway

And they safely opened up that cabin door

I just thought I’d let you know 

You’re what I’m living for

And nothing else ever gonna matter anymore

Because the Wolf is always at the door
