Sara Bareilles – Door Number Three Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Door number two
It’s for you, little lady
Is it all that you dreamed of?
How, if I knew, would’ve been there waiting
I’d have screamed out and jumped up

[Pre-Chorus]
Now here I am
With my feet on the sand
And a body that won’t move
The tide’s coming in
And I’m bound for a swim
In a pair of cement shoes

[Verse 2]
He takes what he can, what he wants
Doesn’t matter if it’s ever been given
I took the bait and a chance on a man
Sold by the boy that he lived in

[Chorus]
And I was wrong to believe that strength makes you strong
And I had hope in a change I would see in us both
And now I’m heavy
He lifts me, but never once carried
Door number two I’ve already walked through

[Verse 3]
Ask me the question
Who coulda guessed I would be here at this crossroad?
Plain to be seen that it’s all up to me
I’m no longer alone, though

[Chorus]
Nothing’s changed
And I see it more every day
Nothing moves
It’s a game to be played and to lose

[Bridge]
And now I’m heavy, unsteady
But maybe I’m getting ready
And this might catch fire and char this ground
I might lift this up
To only be the one who’s gonna get let down
Will I be enough to get this on its way to find some higher ground?
Before the waters rush
I’ve got to make a change or else I know I’ll drown

[Outro]
Baby, look around
Door number two I’ve already walked through
I wanna see what’s behind door number three
