"No Knock On My Door" as written by and Simon/salisury Jones....
She knew my feelings were jangled and frayed
She took me into a wind blown alley way
She showed me a world a boy should see
I'll thank her 'till the day that I die

So, here we go
No knock on my door
Believe it 'till you see
What living has done to me
And I'm sure that I need holding

I took her to a room and I showed her myself
She made me feel proud that I would stand for
There's nothing that this girl wouldn't do for me
For that I've got to thank her and I mean it

So, here we go
A face in the crowd,
Jump up and jump down
Baby, can you see through me?

Sure, I've been here before
No knock on my door
No love in the
Baby, please be my

Sure, I've seen it before
No knock on my door
Love in the
Can be painful, I know

Cry, I cry every night
I need to hold you tight
Oh, can you see me
Knocking down your door?

Sure, there's times I have hoped
There's times I have dreamed
Oh, but it seems that much to me to me, my love
I never seemed to it out, my love

I'm shakin'
Yeah, I'm shakin'

She knew my feelings were jangled and frayed
She took me into a wind blown alley way
She showed me what a boy should see
I'll thank her till the day I die
So, here we go
No knock on my door
Believe it till you see what livin' has done to me
And I'm sure I need some company
I took her to a room and I showed her myself
She made me feel proud and I was thankful
There's nothing that this girl wouldn't do for me
For that I've got to thank her I mean it

So, here we go
A face in the crowd
Jump up and jump down baby
You can see through me

Sure, I've been here before
No knock on my door
No love in the jar baby please be my star
Sure I've seen it before
No knock on my door
Love in the jar has been painful
I know
I know

Cry, I've cried every night
I need to hold you tight, baby
Could you see me knocking down your door
Sure there's times that I've gone and times I have dreamed
Oh, but it seems that I pushed you in my life
Can't seem to get it out my life

Shakin.
Yeah I'm shakin'
And I'm shakin'

    General CommentThe first misstep on A Northern Soul, but its got a great, great guitar line running throughout. It's a great way to follow up the thoughtful and serene 'History' that comes before it. It wanders a bit in the end, but never gets too boring. Definitely about a love of your life leaving you, hence 'No Knock on My Door'.

    General CommentOne of my least favourites on "A Northern Soul" and it's still f*cking brilliant.

    It ups the ante perfectly after History.

    General CommentI dunno, the song kind of drags, but drags my attention too. His voice is so raw, just like the guitar.

    What are the lyrics about?

    General CommentShe made feel proud and respectful.

    Think its She made me feel proud and I was thankful.

    Anyway, another mind blowing song from The Verve, man I sometimes wish it was 1995 again.
