And who is this man standing at my door?
Is he lying or is he true?
Is this how I see you?
Like a rolling pebble on the deepest ocean floor
Life has rubbed me smooth
But you cup me in your hands
And you roll me in your pocket
How many men, unhappy, crammed inside their skin
Wordless to explain, stand at someone's door?

Am I too old for this?
Is there kindness in his face?
A good man or a weak man?
There are horses in the room pulling me through fences
I throw the window open
And the light hits the pavement.
Come in, come in, whoever you are
I will know you, if only from afar

Once I saw a dry dock
And the rustling hulks of ships and trawlers
With a wind that could cut steel
It was so cold

And I don't have to think that hard
And it all comes flooding back
There is so much that neither of us will ever know
Come in, come in, whoever you are
I will know you, if only from afar
