Close The Door Lightly

print

Turn around
don’t whisper out my name
For like a breeze it might stir a dyin’ flame
I’ll miss someone if it eases you know
So close the door lightly when you go.

Take your tears to someone elses eyes
They’re made of glass and they cut like wounding lies
Memories are drifting like the snow
So close the door lightly when you go.

   Who was the one who wasted time
   Who was the one who stole my mind
   Who was the one who made me feel unkind
   So fare thee well sweet love of mine

Don’t look back to where you once had been
Look straight ahead if you’re walking in the rain
And find a life if the path is dark and cold
And close the door lightly when you go.
