Over The Rhine – Who Will Guard The Door lyrics

You were the hand that I tried to take
You're the decision that I could not make
You're the religion that I should forsake

You were the story I tried to tell
You were the savior that tripped and fell
Beautiful dancing infidel

Ohh, who will guard the door
When I am sleeping?
Who will guard the door
When I am sleeping? I'm not sleeping
Ooh, ohh, yeah

You were the season that would not change
I often was the same
Then four horseman came and stole my name

Ohh, who will guard the door
When I am sleeping?
Who will guard the door
When I am sleeping? I'm not sleeping
Ooh, ohh, yeah

Ooh, ohh, I never saw you fall apart
Never saw you work so hard
I never saw you need no one
I am my father's son

You were the hand that I tried to take
You're the decision that I could not make
You're the religion that I should forsake

Ah, ooh, who will guard the door
When I am sleeping?
Who will guard the door
When I am sleeping? I'm not sleeping
Ooh, ohh, yeah, ooh, ohh, yeah, ooh, ohh, yeah, ohh
