Lyrics

Someone's knocking at the door (outside)
Somebody's ringing the bell (inside)
Someone's knocking at the door (outside)
Somebody's ringing the bell

It's an inside thing (open the door, open the door, open the door)
It's an inside thing (an inside thing)

like rides that only take the tall
The water running down the wall
Your nose is pressed against the glass
You left the club without a pass
They closed the door
You can't get in
I don't know where the hell you've been
This behaviour isn't great
Seems to me I'm always late
No matter what you have to say
It's always me that's gotta to pay
Your only just a kiss away
You left me here and yes
It's cold out here
So cold

When the night comes down
Always get so lonely here
In this old town
You gotta change the atmosphere
If I had wings
I'd fly my body out of here
Cause when you get the feeling
You need a little healing
You just need protection
Loving and affection
(that's all) Love and affection

Oh, Oh, Oh
There's a ghost outside the window
Oh, Oh , Oh
Don't know where he's been
Oh, Oh, Oh
When that old cold wind blows
Open the door and let'em in, oh yeah

Someone's knocking at the door (outside)
Somebody's ringing the bell (inside)
Someone's knocking at the door (outside)
Somebody's ringing the bell

It's an inside thing (open the door, open the door, open the door)
It's an inside thing

Some hearts are made of solid gold
And some are magic I've been told
But ever time that I've been kissed
I'm so aware of all the risks to take
But my bold heart is bare
Cause there's many things in there
Even when we are miles apart
It doesn't matter where we are
Cause you and I knew from the start
The answer lives within the heart
So why are you looking so suprised
You know where the truth survives
Spread your wings (spread your wings, let us sing)

When you see my face
Better look behind my eyes
Cause I don't show
Everything I feel inside
Sometimes boy
I've been known to wear disguise
When I get the feeling
I need a little healing
I might need protection
Loving and affection (love and affection)

Oh, Oh, Oh
Ghost outside the window
Oh, Oh , Oh
Don't know where he's been
Oh, Oh, Oh
When that old cold wind blows
Open the door, let'em in, oh yeah yeah

Someone's knocking at the door (outside)
Someone's ringing the bell (inside)
Someone's knocking at the door (outside)
Someone's ringing the bell

It's an inside thing (open the door, open the door, open the door)
It's an inside thing

Oh, no, no, babe
I ain't gonna ride
I ain't gonna run
No, no, no babe
I ain't gonna use a gun
You should know babe
When all is said and done
You could be the one
And maybe sometimes we could even have some fun
Oh yeah

Well if I knock knock on the door
You gotta let me in
And if I tap tap on the window
Even if it's in
I wanna hip hop all night
You know how old cool boo
With Paul Mac and Lulu
Shouting at the new school
Bringing in the new cools
For students that were tardy
So were fine
Bring your fellows
Cause were having a party
Outside it's getting funky
So let me bring
The moral here "Make it an inside thing"

Someone's knocking at the door (Outside)
Somebody's ringing the bell (inside)
Someone's knocking at the door (Outside)
Somebody's ringing the bell

It's an inside thing (open the door, open the door, open the door)
It's an inside thing

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Someone's knocking at the door door
(it's an inside thing)
Somebody's ringing the bell
Somebody's knocking at the door, now, now
Somebody's ringing the bell
Ring-ding-ding-ding-a-ding-ding-ding
Ringing the bell
That'll be him
