I AM THE DOOR

I AM THE DOOR

BandAlternativeRock

I AM THE DOOR create a perfect fusion of elements of punk, jazz, indie, dance, rock and pop. They give you emo meet post rock, cascading melodies tugged apart with anguish and vigor. They come across like The Cure on speed with more balls and delay soaked guitars.

Biography

We are I AM THE DOOR from Bristol, England.

We have been on a humble but steadfast mission to change music in a positive way since 2004, mounting our campaign the old-fashioned way – by loading up the van and taking it to every town that would have us.

Our debut album ‘Frequency’ was released in October 2006 to critical acclaim from the British music press, and was proceeded by even more heavy touring.

In June 2008 we recorded a demo to showcase the direction the band is heading in leading up to the conception of album number two.

We are bonded by a passion for making music we love. Whether at band rehearsal, in the studio or on tour; we are always playing our hearts out.

So look out for us coming to your town, and give us big hello!

Lyrics

Play With The Light

Written By: Justin Percival

Play With The Light

Verse 1

Remember who you are
Cause I am the door
To everything
To your happiness
To the way you see yourself through a broken window

Remember who you are
And where you have come from
Was it a broken home?
Did it hurt?
Or Did you lose someone that you were close to?

Hold yourself up right
And take those punches tonight

Chorus 1
Play with the light
Yeah play with it in anyway you like
Its your life

Verse 2

Remember who you are, where you have been, where you going and what your aiming for
Is it a big house on the hills?
A wife and kids
Lots of money
Is that your lifes thrills?

But remember who you are
And when you got dragged down with you face in the dirt

Hold yourself up right
And take those punches tonight

Chorus 2

Play with the light
Yeah play with it in any direction you like
Play with the light
Yeah play with it in anyway you like
Its your life

Break

Remember who you are
Cause you are special
You’re a giant
You can do anything you want
yeah
Remember who you are
Spread your wings
Breath out
It's right infront of you

Crystal Tears

Written By: Justin Percival

Crystal Tears

Chorus

Please stop crying those crystal tears
Hold my hand
I will take you everywhere
You want to go
I will make it alright
If those crystal tears stop tonight

Verse

So I left you
Standing there
With a sense of un-surance in the air
Two hearts beating
Coincide the same
That’s when I saw those eyes fill up again

And I never meant to hurt you
Said I would always care
And I never meant to hurt you
Said I would always be there
To care for you so….

Please stop crying those crystal tears
Hold my hand
I will take you everywhere
You want to go
I will make it alright
If those crystal tears stop tonight

All We Have Are Ghosts

Written By: Justin Percival

All We Have Are Ghosts

Intro / Break

We close our eyes to escape the darkness
All we want is the light to guide us
all we have are ghosts
Kicking and screaming trying to get out of us
Open your eyes and there is light all around us
and the ghosts simply fade into moments of happiness
Now all that we have

Verse 1

This room is quiet
Daylight has gone
and there is something more I should know
when I'm feeling nervous
I find myself alone
I have no particular place to go
I could lie here
For ever
Tongue tied and outclassed
cause I'm just another broken hearted anthem
Can you see the look in my eyes?

Chorus

All we have are ghosts
kicking and screaming trying to get out of us
Tell me what hurts the most
is it the photographs framed and the memories that haunt us
But open your eyes and there's light all around us
the ghosts simply fade into moments of happiness
Now the ghosts are all that we have

Verse 2

so say a little prayer
its time to face my fears
and convince myself someone cares
cause I'm sick to the stomach
stuck here in the dark
with all these voices telling me that I'm lost
Say it loud, say it clearer
look for the light
don't question your reasons
while your here take it outside
to all the answers hold your head up high
