This song is not about dying! It’s about making changes and taking risks.

Chorus:
Standing at the door between this world and the next
Standing at the door waiting for a sign
Standing at the door how will I ever know
When it’s my time to go

Looking out the door, all I see is screen
Little bits of color, I don’t what they mean
The smell of dust and dirt, it doesn’t make much sense
I cannot see beyond this fence

Chorus:
Standing at the door between this world and the next
Standing at the door waiting for a sign
Standing at the door how will I ever know
When it’s my time to go

Looking out the door, I see the road ahead
I’m mapping out my journey; I cannot stay in bed
But when there’s a detour I get really lost
When I go to bed I just turn and toss

Chorus:
Standing at the door between this world and the next
Standing at the door looking for a sign
Standing at the door will I ever know
When it’s my time to go

Walking out the door, gonna throw away my plans
With each step do everything I can
Really use my senses – smell and touch and hear
Look beneath the surface; see every soul as dear

Chorus:
Standing at the door between this world and the next
Standing at the door I can see the sign
Standing at the door now I really know
I am ready to go
