lyrics

"Door to Door"

You say you wanted change, well here it is
I hope it doesn’t move too slow
It seems everything is all amiss
And there’s nothing here left to grow

Oh, now I believe what you say
And I’m sorry, but I won’t ever stay
Stay away

And now what it is ain’t what it was
I hope you wanted it this way
I needed something more than just because
I needed something more than yesterday

So, you think I’m less than free
Let me tell you, there’s nothing stopping me

I’m a soldier, going off to war
I’m a sailor, yeah, searching for the shore
I’m a salesman, yeah, going door to door
I’m a baker, yeah, minding what’s in store

So I never saw this coming down
But I’d say that it is time
I said it once and I will say again
I’ll turn round to find I’ve lost a friend in you

And I don’t want to hear that you’re sorry
But there’s nothing here for you

You say reggae is the blues of our generation
First it was the delta, now Jamaica
I don’t mind, I don’t mind, tell me it’s the same
But who’s to blame

anyway
I know I’m more than that
And it’s only a matter of where I’m at

I’m a soldier, yeah, going off to war
I’m a sailor, yeah, searching for the shore
I’m a salesman, yeah, going door to door
I’m a baker, yeah, minding what’s in store

So now, I turn around to lose a friend
I hope this is just the end
