OPEN DOORS

I LEARNED MY LESSON YOUNG IT’S THE LOOK IN THEIR EYES YOU CAN’T TRUST AND OPEN DOORS WILL TURN A MAN TO DUST. I REMEMBER WALKING UP TO THE DOOR BUT THE TURN OF THE DEADBOLT LEFT ME ON THE FLOOR. I SAID “OH MY GOD, WHAT DID I JUST LET IN?” I SAID “OH MY LORD, WHAT DID I JUST LET IN?” BECAUSE I KNOW THEM EYES BEEN PUSHING LEAD. OH HOLD ME BACK SHE’S GOT LIPS LIKE THAT WITH WORDS ROLLING OFF LIKE KEYS. IT’S LIKE SQUEEZING TACKS WHEN SHE COMES BACK SHE WALKS, WALKS HERSELF RIGHT IN (OH SHIT HERE SHE COMES) I SAID “OH MY GOD, WHAT DID I JUST LET IN?” I SAID “OH MY LORD, WHAT DID I JUST LET IN?” IT WAS A NO PA, NO KIN SHOTGUN WEDDING. BECAUSE I KNOW THEM EYES BEEN PUSHING LEAD.

SUMMER’S GOT A HOLD ON HEAT LIKE THIS WOMAN SHE’S GOT A HOLD ON MY LEAD (OH YES SHE DO IT GOES LIKE THIS NOW) SURROUNDING HEAT IS GONNA HERD OUR HOPEFUL EYES WELL I HOPE THIS WONT BE OUR DEMISE. WHEN WE BOTH CAN SMELL A FIRE START TO BURN IF YOU ASK ME TO I SWEAR TO GOD NOW I WON’T RUN. SHE’S GOT A HOLD ON ME LIKE WATER’S GOT A PL ACE IN THE SEA.
