OF THE DOORS

 

Lyrics - the crystal ship

Song: the crystal ship

before you slip into unconsciousness
i'd like to have another kiss
another flashing chance at bliss
another kiss, another kiss


the days are bright and filled with pain
enclose me in your gentle rain
the time you ran was too insane
we'll meet again, we'll meet again


oh tell me where your freedom lies
the streets are fields that never die
deliver me from reasons why
you'd rather cry, i'd rather fly


the crystal ship is being filled
a thousand girls, a thousand thrills
a million ways to spend your time
when we get back, i'll drop a line

 

 

Lyrics - light my fire

Album: The Doors

Song: light my fire

you know that it would be untrue
you know that i would be a liar
if i was to say to you
girl, we couldn't get much higher


come on baby, light my fire
come on baby, light my fire
try to set the night on fire


the time to hesitate is through
no time to wallow in the mire
try now we can only lose
and our love become a funeral pyre


come on baby, light my fire
come on baby, light my fire
try to set the night on fire, yeah


the time to hesitate is through
no time to wallow in the mire
try now we can only lose
and our love become a funeral pyre


come on baby, light my fire
come on baby, light my fire
try to set the night on fire, yeah


you know that it would be untrue
you know that i would be a liar
if i was to say to you
girl, we couldn't get much higher


come on baby, light my fire
come on baby, light my fire
try to set the night on fire
try to set the night on fire
try to set the night on fire
try to set the night on fire

Lyrics - people are strange

Album: Strange Days

Song: people are strange

people are strange when you're a stranger
faces look ugly when you're alone
women seem wicked when you're unwanted
streets are uneven when you're down


when you're strange
faces come out of the rain
when you're strange
no one remembers your name
when you're strange
when you're strange
when you're strange


people are strange when you're a stranger
faces look ugly when you're alone
women seem wicked when you're unwanted
streets are uneven when you're down


when you're strange
faces come out of the rain
when you're strange
no one remembers your name
when you're strange
when you're strange
when you're strange


when you're strange
faces come out of the rain
when you're strange
no one remembers your name
when you're strange
when you're strange
when you're strange

 

 

Lyrics - hello, i love you

Album: Waiting for the Sun

Song: hello, i love you

hello, i love you
won't you tell me your name?
hello, i love you
let me jump in your game
hello, i love you
won't you tell me your name?
hello, i love you
let me jump in your game

she's walking down the street
blind to every eye she meets
do you think you'll be the guy
to make the queen of the angels sigh?

hello, i love you
won't you tell me your name?
hello, i love you
let me jump in your game
hello, i love you
won't you tell me your name?
hello, i love you
let me jump in your game

she holds her head so high
like a statue in the sky
her arms are wicked, and her legs are long
when she moves my brain screams out this song

sidewalk crouches at her feet
like a dog that begs for something sweet
do you hope to make her see, you fool?
do you hope to pluck this dusky jewel?

hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello
i want you
hello
i need my baby
hello, hello, hello, hello

 

 

Lyrics - love street

Album: Waiting for the Sun

Song: love street

she lives on love street
lingers long on love street
she has a house and garden
i would like to see what happens

she has robes and she has monkeys
lazy diamond studded flunkies
she has wisdom and knows what to do
she has me and she has you

she has wisdom and knows what to do
she has me and she has you

i see you live on love street
there's this store where the creatures meet
i wonder what they do in there
summer sunday and a year
i guess i like it fine, so far

she lives on love street
lingers long on love street
she has a house and garden
i would like to see what happens

la, la, la, la, la, la, la
la, la, la, la, la, la, la
la, la, la, la, la, la, la
la, la, la, la, la, la, la
la, la, la, la, la, la, la

 

 

Lyrics - spanish caravan

Album: Waiting for the Sun

Song: spanish caravan

carry me caravan take me away
take me to portugal, take me to spain
andalusia with fields full of grain
i have to see you again and again

trade winds find galleons lost in the sea
i know where treasure is waiting for me
silver and gold in the mountains of spain
i have to see you again and again
take me, spanish caravan
yes, i know you can

till the stars fall from the sky for you and i i'm gonna love you
till the heavens stop the rain
i'm gonna love you
till the stars fall from the sky for you and i

 

 

Lyrics - the soft parade

Album: The Soft Parade

Song: the soft parade

when i was back there in seminary school
there was a person there
who put forth the proposition
that you can petition the lord with prayer
petition the lord with prayer
petition the lord with prayer
you cannot petition the lord with prayer!

can you give me sanctuary
i must find a place to hide
a place for me to hide

can you find me soft asylum
i can't make it anymore
the man is at the door

peppermint, miniskirts, chocolate candy
champion sax and a girl named sandy
there's only four ways to get unraveled
one is to sleep and the other is travel, da da
one is a bandit up in the hills
one is to love your neighbor 'till
his wife gets home

catacombs
nursery bones
winter women
growing stones
carrying babies
to the river

streets and shoes
avenues
leather riders
selling news
the monk bought lunch

ha ha, he bought a little
yes, he did
woo!
this is the best part of the trip
this is the trip, the best part
i really like
what'd he say?
yeah!
yeah, right!
pretty good, huh
huh!
yeah, i'm proud to be a part of this number

successful hills are here to stay
everything must be this way
gentle streets where people play
welcome to the soft parade

all our lives we sweat and save
building for a shallow grave
must be something else we say
somehow to defend this place
everything must be this way
everything must be this way, yeah

the soft parade has now begun
listen to the engines hum
people out to have some fun
a cobra on my left
leopard on my right, yeah

the deer woman in a silk dress
girls with beads around their necks
kiss the hunter of the green vest
who has wrestled before
with lions in the night

out of sight!
the lights are getting brighter
the radio is moaning
calling to the dogs
there are still a few animals
left out in the yard
but it's getting harder
to describe sailors
to the underfed

tropic corridor
tropic treasure
what got us this far
to this mild equator?

we need someone or something new
something else to get us through, yeah, c'mon

callin' on the dogs
callin' on the dogs
oh, it's gettin' harder
callin' on the dogs
callin' in the dogs
callin' all the dogs
callin' on the gods

you gotta meet me
too late, baby
slay a few animals
at the crossroads
too late
all in the yard
but it's gettin' harder
by the crossroads
you gotta meet me
oh, we're goin', we're goin great
at the edge of town
tropic corridor
tropic treasure
havin' a good time
got to come along
what got us this far
to this mild equator?
outskirts of the city
you and i
we need someone new
somethin' new
somethin' else to get us through
better bring your gun
better bring your gun
tropic corridor
tropic treasure
we're gonna ride and have some fun

when all else fails
we can whip the horse's eyes
and make them sleep
and cry

 

Lyrics - love her madly

Album: L.A. Woman

Song: love her madly

don't ya love her madly
don't ya need her badly
don't ya love her ways
tell me what you say

don't ya love her madly

don't ya love her face
don't ya love her as she's walkin' out the door

seven horses seem to be on the mark

yeah, don't you love her
don't you love her as she's walkin' out the door

all your love

all your love

yeah, all your love is gone
so sing a lonely song

seven horses seem to be on the mark

Lyrics - riders on the storm

Album: L.A. Woman

Song: riders on the storm

riders on the storm
riders on the storm
into this house we're born
into this world we're thrown
like a dog without a bone
an actor out alone
riders on the storm

there's a killer on the road
his brain is squirmin' like a toad
take a long holiday
let your children play
if ya give this man a ride
sweet memory will die
killer on the road, yeah

girl ya gotta love your man
girl ya gotta love your man
take him by the hand
make him understand
the world on you depends
our life will never end
gotta love your man, yeah

wow!

riders on the storm
riders on the storm
into this house we're born
into this world we're thrown
like a dog without a bone
an actor out alone
riders on the storm

riders on the storm
riders on the storm
riders on the storm
riders on the storm
riders on the storm
