You're everything I could want
There's no house you couldn't haunt
You're the key that could keep me in
You're the sense under the skin
I wont bring you roses I'll bring myself instead
Time only is time for what is meant not what was said

Don't come knocking
Don't come knocking
Don't come knocking at my door
Don't come knocking
Knock, knock knocking
Don't come knocking no more

You're a dream I could wake up in
You're a fight I shouldn't try to win
You're the door I'll always leave open
You're the heart that's always hoping
Of a tree lined avenue, in a cottage made of stone
I am sleeping not dreaming
I would rather live alone

Don't come knocking
Don't come knocking
Don't come knocking at my door
Don't come knocking
Knock, knock knocking
Don't come knocking no more

All the stars in the sky, they can't light our way oh no
All the maps and all the charms
All the trees…
Dreams wont leave you home…
Home…

Don't come knocking
Don't come knocking
Don't come knocking at my door
Don't come knocking
Don't come knocking
Don't come knocking at my door
Don't come knocking
Knock, knock knocking
Don't come knocking no more

OMG the word "heart" is in this song! Who would have thought?

I'm partial to Bono's list songs, so this one is pretty good for me, although "all the stars in the sky" is particularly cringeworthy.

Lay off the cliches, B.

It's a new song, from the Wim Wenders film of the same title.

I think it's "ON a tree lined avenue"; that makes more sense to me.

That makes more sense.

I transcribed those lyrics really roughly the other night... (posted them in the other thread and on my Corrs site - I'll change it now) thanks.
