Ray Manzarek: It's a dark Venice Beach song. Four a.m. You can't sleep. Your girl's passed out, and who knows what arguments you've been through. She's cold and she'll kill. You. Take it out of Venice and stick in Hollywood and it's The Day of the Locust.
"That's the trouble with reality!.... it's taken far too seriously! I do hope God is good to me and Santa Claus to the children! Celebrate...this parties over...I'm going home!"

This is from what is reffered to as the Green Songbook which is believed to be from 1965/1966. Cars Hiss By My Window was a standard blues song that The Doors had played on several occasions before the recording of the song for LAW. It appears it was in Morrison's mind well before the debut album and it is surprising that it took so long to appear.
Cars hiss by my window like waves on the beach My baby's right beside me But she's out of reach
Headlights thru my window Crawling on the wall I can't hear my baby Tho I call & call My window starts to tremble Like a sonic boom A cold girl will kill you In a darkened room
You are my window on a city When we turn off the light I walk into your whisper & fall thru the night
Dogs roam out my window in the cruel morning yard To lose your love & keep her Is more than hard
