DOORS

2007, Wanda L. Harrell

Doors open wide and doors close tight

Doors of every size and every height

Doors short and doors tall

Doors big and doors small

Doors with knobs, doors with bars

Doors on houses, doors on cars

Doors keeping out rain and wind

Doors to keep things out or hold things in

Doors that open, doors that swing

All kinds of doors on almost everything

We passionately kissed goodbye, and then I closed the door

I thought there would be another time, actually many more

That my front door would open, and you'd walk right back in

But oh, sweet baby, I was wrong; I was totally mistaken

You have no idea how I wish I'd never closed that door

Since then, I've not seen you again, not even once more

Sometimes at night, I've dreamed you opened the door

And my heart pounded when you walked across the floor

I didn't want to wake up, ‘cause even in dreams, I feared

That I'd open my eyes to find you had again disappeared

Doors open wide and doors close tight

Doors of every size and every height

Doors short and doors tall

Doors big and doors small

Doors with knobs, doors with bars

Doors on houses, doors on cars

Doors blocking the rain and wind

Doors to keep things out or hold things in

Doors that open, doors that swing

All kinds of doors on almost everything

Baby, there's only one door I want you to find

Only one door I want you to open another time

Baby, I didn't let you know how much I love and care

Now, I'm lookin' at my door, never seeing you standing there

I just want once more to see your face come in that door

Just once more, baby, baby, open the door just once more
