What If I Came Knocking Lyrics

What if I came knocking

On your front door some night

Would you open the window

 

And drop me down the key

 

What if I came knocking

On your bedpost that same night

 

Would you open up your heart

Or try to get the best of me

 

What if I came knocking

On your brain the next day

 

And ask for your truth and your love and your honesty

 

Would you build up your big walls

And try to hide behind that smile

 

Or would you try to pull the wool right over me

 

So what if I came knocking

 

So what if I came knocking

So what if I came kicking

 

So what if I came kicking

So what if I came kicking

And it scared you a little bit

And I came on strong

Would you think

That theres something wrong with me

 

Or could it be your fears

 

Of trying something real

 

Or just afraid to touch

A guy like me

 

What if I came knocking

 

What if I came knocking

What if I came knocking

 

What if I came kicking

What if I came kicking

 

On your front door some night ahh

 

So lets just say it worked out

Like a storybook dream

And we lived happily ever after

Fa la la la

 

But what if I came crying

After just a few weeks

And said I misread my heart

This is not really meant to be yeah

 

So if you hear some knocking

On your window tonight

 

You can bet that its probably me

 

But let it be known

That were just a pair of tumbling dice

And the outcome of these crap shoots

Is hard to see

 

So what if I came knocking

 

So what if I came knocking

So what if I came knocking

 

So what if I came kicking

So what if I came kicking

 

On your front door tonight ahh

 

So what if I came knocking

Knock knock knock knock knock knocking

 

Kick kick kick

 

What if I came knocking

 

On your front porch tonight tonight
