Baby close the door,
The only one you know,
The footsteps you keep wandering on and on.
The pouring rain at dawn.

Set yourself at ease,
You're always on my mind,
Close the door, I'd close the door that's all,
I chose my way to fall.

I don't want to be ungrateful,
I don't want to be unfaithful,
I just want to be the one you hold.
I can't turn back the hands of time
But if I could I'd make you mine,
I was always so in love with you.

Landed on my knees
The rose you gave to me
Healing comes to those who
Are the most in need.
The one's you're looking for.

Say, before I go
This is all I know
The reasons why I can't rely on all this time,
It only goes so slow.

I don't want to be ungrateful,
I don't want to be unfaithful,
I just want to be the one you hold.
I can't turn back the hands of time
But if I could I'd make you mine,
I was always so in love with you.

Never should be breaking your heart again.
Never should be breaking your heart again.

Baby close the door,
The only one you know,
The footsteps you keep wandering on and on.
The pouring rain at dawn.

The pouring rain at dawn.
The pouring rain at dawn.
