Standing in the Doorway

This song is by Bonnie Raitt and appears on the album Slipstream (2012).

I'm walkin' through the summer nights
Jukebox playin' 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
Probably wouldn't matter to you anyhow

You left me standin' in the doorway, cryin'
I got nothin' to go back to now

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

I been ridin' the midnight train
I got ice water in my veins
I would be crazy if I took you back
It would go up against any rule

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

When the last rays of daylight go down
Buddy, you'll roll no more
I can hear church bells ringin' in the yard
Wonder who they're ringing' for

Oh, I know I can't win
But my heart, it just won't give in
I see nothin' to be gained by any explanation
There are no words that need to be said

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