from All Rare Potatoes Be

Let me open the doorway for you
Like it was the last thing I’d ever do
Let me make you a floor and lie prostrate for you
Let me open the doorway for you

I pounced at the chance
With a sock full of ants
And put on my clean pants for you
Then I uncombed my hair
And made sure it looked weird
Like I’d slept on it dreaming of you

I went down to your post
With a lump in my throat
And acted unnatural and cool
Then you jumped out my reach
As I fumbled my speech
And I walked out defeated and blue

But let me open the doorway for you
Like it was the last thing I’d ever do
Let me make you a floor and lie prostrate for you
Let me open the doorway for you

Oh I’m tired of begging
For my dreams to come true
Let me open the doorway for you
