What if I came knocking on your front door some night
Would you open the window and drop me down the key?
And what if I came knocking on your bedpost that same night
Would you open up your heart or try to get the best of me?

What if I came knocking on your brain the next day
And ask for your truth and your love and your honesty?
Would you build up your big walls and try to hide behind that smile
Or would you try to pull the wool right over me?

So what if I came knocking?
What if I came knocking?

So what if I came kicking and it scared you a little bit
And I came on strong would you think
That there's something wrong with me?
Or could it be your fears of trying something real
Or just afraid to touch a, a guy like me?

What if I came knocking?
What if I came knocking?
What if I came knocking?
On your front door some night, aha?

So let's just say it worked out like a storybook dream
And we lived happily ever after, fa la la la

But what if I came crying after just a few weeks
And said I misread my heart this is not really meant to be, yeah?

So if you hear some knocking on your window tonight
You can bet that it's a probably me
But let it be known that we're just a pair of tumbling dice
And the outcome of these crap shoots is hard to see

So what if I came knocking?
So what if I came knocking?
So what if I came knocking
On your front door tonight, aha?

So what if I came knocking?
Knock, knock, knock
Knock, knock, knocking, hey yeah
And kick, kick, kick
What if I came knocking
On your front porch tonight, tonight?
