The Click Of The Door (download MP3)

Words by Lisa Rigby
Music by Yvonne Lyon

Click
This time I’ve been shown grace
Life’s provided a space just for me
I never know what my fate will be
When I hear…

Click
When he stops all the clocks
I absorb all the shocks as before
Either mother or whore
When I hear the click of the door

This house is not a castle but a fortress
Locked inside – fear and self doubt
A beautiful façade, the rictus-grinning mask
Will they ever let the truth fly out?

Click
And so the dance begins
I atone for your sins once more
My gaze turns down to the floor
When I hear the click of the door

This house is not a castle but a fortress
Locked inside – fear and self doubt
A beautiful façade, the rictus-grinning mask
Will they ever let the truth fly out?

Click
And so the dance begins
I atone for your sins once more
Lay my life out on the floor
When I hear the click of the door
