Cellar door, what's the use
Cellar door, are you open to find me
Iron ore shields remorse
When I look, I look to your beautiful name
And find you're not the same

Cellar door, what's the case
Are you locked in your shadow's embrace
Do you feel so insane
That you don't, you don't want to show me your face
But I, I can relate

Holding on to everything
That makes us bleed

Overflowing underneath my pretty face
With the presence of the haste
Now they're sayin' don't believe anything
But I do believe, I know you well

Cellar dooroligist
Your therapy is the one I love best
You give me strength to confess
That I, I will not last very long
So soon, I'll be gone

Oh, these walls know everything
And I'm tired of being lost inside

Overflowing underneath my pretty face
With the presence of the haste
Now they're sayin', don't believe anything
But I do believe I know you

Overflowing underneath my pretty face
With the presence of the haste
Now they're sayin', don't believe anything
But I do believe I know you

Love will come to me and I will not remain
Hover over these confused contaminated veins
Love will come to me and I will not remain
Hover over these confused contaminated veins

Hey yeah, hey yeah
Hey yeah, hey yeah

    General CommentThis song confuses me.. Sounds beautiful, though.

    I think maybe.. she's talking about a place she used to know, obviously, but hasn't been there in a long time and now that she's had the opportunity to visit nothing is the same, or seems that way.

    But despite this, she thinks that the real place she used to know still exists, no matter what other people tell her. Or perhaps she's talking about a person, not a place? That's what it sure seems like..

    To me it's always been about a person. Maybe she refers to them as 'cellar door' because it was a kind of hidden underground thing, maybe somebody she couldn't always see but had good times with nonetheless. They were both very close but time has made them drift apart. And now everyone thinks they don't know eachother anymore.. but she knows them maybe even more than herself.

    Just two views that came to mind.
