Nellie McKay The Portal Lyrics

Last updated: 01/10/2011 10:00:00 AM

There's a house down Willow Lane
Just a simple sea-side shack
Through the wind and pourin' rain
She wants you black

There's a portal on the door
In the evening, comes a draft
From the life we had before
You left

Lost in ..
And all I got's the sense of it
'Cause all I had was you

Lost down ..
And all I got's incensed by it
Now don't you go away

There is nothin' left to say
(I love you so)
There is nothin' left to do

There is nothin' left to make
(I love you so)
There is nothin' left of you

I'm in trouble and I do not see the light
There's a problem with my sight
It's a fight to stay alive and it's not fair
You're everywhere

Callin' up my past
But they're all gotten tired of me
And all my cryin' spells

Talkin' back to fate
The fate has done expired on me
And you who knew me well

I'm in trouble and my heart is set to fold
There's a problem with my soul
I'm a stone and it's not rollin' half way there
You're everywhere

There is nothin' left to say
(I love you so)
There is nothin' left to do

There is nothin' left to take
(I love you so)
There is nothin' left of you

Lost on Willow Lane
Our love has turned to tumbleweed
Now don't you blow away
