Doorstep - Triclops 1992/12/?? version

Original Lyrics

And on her doorstep
I saw that I was blind
I’d forsaken
What was mine
What had mattered
Mattered little now
We had shattered
Apart somehow
Ooh
I can’t help but stay the same
I remain true to my name
Time to get up
And take the long walk home
For the first time
I go alone
Do you remember
When we first met?
Chasing down the alleyways
Behind my dad’s
Ooh
I can’t help but stay the same
I remain true to the name
Of lovers past
Good enough to lose
Good enough to choose you, too
Ooh
I can’t help but stay the same
Ooh
I remain true to the name
Of lovers past
Good enough to lose
Good enough to choose you, too

Kinda uncertain if this Doorstep (which is an early title for Meladori Magpie) was recorded in the Triclops Sound Studios, however Jesse Miller (Smashing Pumpkins Recordings History, 2000) mentions it. There might be a mix-up with the Quiet, & 20 Other Songs "release". We list it anyway for reference and further research. More info, other sources say (about Meladori Magpie):

""Another believe it or not, this left-over from Siamese Dream was written in the last-minute crush. Butch Vig never thought much of it, but it is one of my secret favorites. A simple song of innocence that has double-tracked, finger-picked acoustic and drum machine, and was recorded at home." -BC (Guitar World 1/97)".
