Future Islands - Walking Through That Door Lyrics




As processions fade,
New hearts doubt.
But you are Golden and no one questions it.

But who you fake and how you sound,
Asks the best of men
To share your sentiment

I want to be the one to help you find those years
That you've been talking about.
Dreaming of the South
And all those lost goodbyes,
And all those lonely tears,
You never got to cry,

It never works out right,
Unless you're one to follow.
Where the silence takes too long,
When the night falls--when the night falls oh so slow,
And caution isn't ours.
When the night falls--when the night falls oh so low,
We may lose control.

I want to be the one to help you find those years
That you've been talking about.
Dreaming of the South
And all those lonely nights,
And all those lost goodbyes,
You never got to sigh.

I want to be the one to help you find those dreams
Because you've been hanging around,
Talking about the South,
And all those balmy nights,
And all those lonely songs,
You never got to write.

And I'll hold your hand as I walk you through that door,
I'll hold your hand as you held my hand as I walk you through the door

    Charles Lux

    Congratulations! Your one year closer to death.

    Baker Swenson

    Charles Lux

    Oh you will...you will. Be it a 100 years or 1000 (which I highly doubt). But I will be there to congratulate you my dearest friend.

    I think the girl has depression - which is embodied/symbolised by the black bear. At the start she struggles to get out of bed. The black bear then takes her hands, she is in the grips of depression. As the bear holds her, she is crying. Then the setting of the sun, as the "night falls" shows the passage of time, and how things have become darker. This passage of time is symbolised again in the candle burning away (years go by) and the Christmas tree (seasons go by), all the while she is still in the grips of depression (black bear) as all life's enjoyment is sucked from her. The black bear then opens the curtains, offering a way out of this sadness (symbolised by the crying eyes) in the form of suicidal thoughts (symbolised by the closing of the eyes). She then takes the black bear's hands, giving in to the suicidal thoughts. They then turn to the door/cave (symbolising the passage into death), she turns back to the black bear, scared and needing guidance. He nods, encouraging her to pass through, promising he'll "hold her hand" as she walks through the door. They are then shown, asleep together - she is dead. Her spirit appears, and the black bear takes the crown from her dead body and gives it to her spirit - symbolising the passage into the afterlife (from body to spirit) as her body is consumed by the earth. Then, in the embrace of the black bear, they look to the heavens; she has given herself entirely to depression.
