My Door Is Never

Lyrics

My door is always open
My door is always open
My door is always open to you
My door is always open
My door is always open
My door is always open to you
The night to self with the shoulder touch
Aroma for the duvet you slept in
No, not never, no day
Will I prove my nerve to you
Or impress your dipshit head like others do
I crave your death inside my mind's eye
A-and my beer will never be open
My door will never be open
My door will never be open to you
My door will never be open
My door will never be open
My door will never be open to you
To you
My door is always open
My door is always open
Everything that I was supposed to have learned
But my spectre is coming after you
I crave your death within my mind's eye
My door will never be open
My door will never be open
My door will never be open to you
My door will never be open to you
My door will never be open to you
My door will never be open
My door will never be open
My door will never be open to you
To you   (1)

Notes

 

1. In 2015 the Fall revived this song, and the following lyrics come from a photograph of MES's lyric sheet, taken at Wakefield on May 9th (the Fall opened with the song). The enjambment is as in the handwritten version, and I tried to reproduce the capitalization, although I will readily admit that at least the latter is probably not very important:

No knock ever comes
my way
Your knot seems selfish
at the top
I ssee [sic] your diction
in my mind's eye

It then indicates that the chorus is to be repeated 5 times ("ch. x 5") and at the bottom it looks like it says "Spectre I wore".

Thanks to mrrogers from the Fall online forum.

In Dave Luff's lyric book V11, the words "the keys and a 1918 penny/that opened a door to a heart" are added to the song, immediately before the line "Everything I was supposed to have learned."

Would the reference to a penny refer to the so-called "Dead Man's Penny", issued to the familes of those who died in WW1? Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memorial_Plaque_(medallion)
