I'm gonna let Andy explain this one...

Andy: I wrote, or I should say, the chorus spilled out in a songwriting class called Getting Unstuck taught by Abbie Gardner at Summersongs East in a five minute exercise to write using the chord progression Am F C G. For the last month I got stuck again on this one while doing all other things 5090 and sent the chorus and guitar chord progression to Adnama17 for her ideas. Another exercise in the class was rearranging the song Amazing Grace. I did not mention that to Adnama17. She added it independently. Kinda spooky huh? So many doors to Amazing Grace.

lyrics

V1
Many doors, many ways
Many different games to play
Where’s the truth? Behind which door?
Perhaps it’s way beneath the floor.

Chorus
Pale yellow block wall, backlit glow
Wondering where that trapdoor goes
Is it keeping something out? Or something in?
Blocking redemption? Or opening sin?

(Amazing grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me)

(Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved)

(Through many dangers, toils, and snares,
I have already come)

V2
Why put me down because we disagree?
So many different ways to see
Don’t shut the door to other truth
Is yours the only way with proof?
