Glen Hansard - The Closing Door Lyrics

The closing door
The end of people
His likes no more
Go tell it on the steeple
The river runs
At a fever
Just like a drum
With no meter

The closing door
The blue-eyed raven
Will sing no more
Above the congregation
Like Noah's dove
With his burden
Above the mighty flood
Won't be returning

To the closing door

Glen Hansard The Closing Door Comments
  1. -_- Boi.

    I would love for this to be converted to midi onto the Synthesia platform

  2. Neil Z

    Hauntingly Beautiful, Awesome All Around.

  3. Karol Kasprowiak

    why is it so short?

  4. Simon Lee

    After decades of not hearing your voice, this song is engrained in me.

  5. Gianni Coinu

    Tira aria alla Hugo Race...

  6. Mohamed Tolba

    Very impressive

  7. Eian PM

    looks like Newton's house

  8. Christian Becker

    Phantastischer Song. Ein audiovisuelles Meisterwerk

  9. Armin Norouzi

    Is that sound of KAMANCHEH? Am I hearing right?

    Abigail Reeves

    Armin Norouzi it is!

    Pouya Gorji

    I was unsure whether it was the Kamancheh or a hurdy-gurdy . Then the bloody Ney blasted in.

    The closing door
    The end of people
    His likes no more
    Go tell it in the steeple
    The river runs
    Out of fever
    Just like a drum
    With no meter
    The closing door
    The blue eyed raven
    You'll send no more
    Above the congregation
    Like Noah's dove
    Where there's burden
    Above the mighty flood
    Won't be returning
    Oh, oh
    To the closing door ❤️❤️❤️


    looks like he's talking about the catholic church, dissing it, " You'll send no more
    Above the congregation", and at the same time tipping his hat to Judaism - " Like Noah's dove"

  13. Dom Herbin

    Le graphisme me rappelle celui des "hommes volants" de Jean-Michel Folon 👍
    Très poétique 🎩

    Vani Sky

    Peut-être Magritte aussi?

    Great work of art

  17. Maiara Martins

    Come to Brazil!!! We love you here since Once.

  18. paganmaestro

    This album's production annoys me, unfortunately. Glen's voice gets lost in it.

    Kevin Johnson

    Have you tried listening to it with headphones? That's what Glen recommended upon first listen.


    @Kevin Johnson Yes, I have. I'll hang on until the next album. There are others to listen to in the meantime.

    Kevin Johnson

    @paganmaestro weird. I can hear him just fine.


    @Kevin JohnsonI like to hear all of his voice, not just the front half. Different strokes. Glad you're enjoying the album. So-so here.

    Wow. What an amazing video animation - perfect for the song. Love Glen Hansard’s world music influences in this one.

  27. Skywalktrice I AM

  28. Bimon Solivar

    I absolutely love the oriental vibe - pure magic!


    Eastern European and Middle Eastern are the regions you're thinking of.

  29. Jonathan Hall

    Bring back the voice. Stop whispering.

    Bimon Solivar

    I like both!

  30. Chengzhi Zhang

  31. MeanMcCoy 33

    You've always created beautiful music, and I always look forward to being moved by it....

  32. DeepBluntMan ___

  33. littlecal

    Glen can do no wrong.

  34. Aktham AbulHusn

    I was happy to be at Glen's concert in Berlin this year (and last year as well) to present the new album. I had already heard and LOVED this song in particular. And in the concert, as Glen told the story behind the song and how did he come up with it, I had to love it even more. It was a fantastic concert with a fantastic band. I loved each and every second of it <3 looking forward to the coming concerts in Berlin :D
