MY BACK DOOR
Melissa Etheridge


When I was a child

I dreamed like a child of wonder

With my back in the grass

My eyes to the sky to see

I believed in the stars

I knew they cast a spell that I was under

With my fingers in the dirt

I was part of the earth

Every living thing was part of me


But it's gone, it's gone

It's gone, it's gone, gone

I can't feel it

I can't feel it

Must've found a way out my back door

Must've run away out my back door

Because it's gone, gone, gone


Then I fell in love

Love gave me a shot of pure desire

There was nothing else like this

This unimagined bliss this ecstasy

Deep inside the night

I believed I saw the light ignite a fire

And it burned into the dark

It burned deep inside my heart

I thought it would burn eternally


But it's gone, it's gone

It's gone, it's gone, gone

I can't feel it

I can't feel it

Must've found a way out my back door

Must've run away out my back door

Because it's gone, gone, gone


So I run into the street

And I'm shouting into the phone

Asking everyone I meet

I say have you seen it on my doorstep

Did you see it in my car

Have you seen it in the alley

Was it on the back of some guitar

Is it sleeping in the hallway

Does it cry all night alone

Is it selling itself for money

Does it want, does it want to come home
