The Other Side Of The Door

I walk down this hallway
It is a hallway that i have never walked before
There is a big blue door at the end
It's calling my name ever so sweetly
I must see what is on the other side

People tell me that i shouldn't go.
That some doors are better left closed
That only pain awaits me on the other side.
People say i am a fool for doing this
but i must see what it is on the other side

I am so close now
My hands are shaking with fear and excitement
I know that the odds are against me
They are basically like a zillion to one
Yet still i must see what is on the other side

I twist the knob and open the door
I take but one step in and...
I step into a blade aimed at my heart.
The blood pours from my heart.
Now i see what is on the other side

I look up form my mortal wound,
to find a girl holding the knife
She tells me how sorry she is with tears in her eyes
'its not our fault' i say I stepped into it.
This was the price i paid to see what was on the other side

I fall to the ground, but still looking into her eyes
Tears don't belong on someone so beautiful
Looks like this is the end of this me
I will return when my heart leads me somewhere else
and now i know what is on the other sid
