Sometimes I remember the old days
When the world was filled with sorrow
You might have thought I was living
But I was all alone

In my heart
The rain was falling
The wind blew
The night was calling
Come back, come back
I'm all you've ever known

(CHORUS)
Open the door and come on in
I'm so glad to see you, my friend
You're like a rainbow
Coming around the bend
And when I see you happy
Well, it sets my heart free
I'd like to be as
Good a friend to you
As you are to me

There were friends
Who could always see me
Through the haze
Their smiles would reach me

Saying okay
Saying goodbye, saying hello

Soon I knew
Just what I was after
Was life and love
Tears and laughter

Hello, my good friend
Hello, my darling
What do you know

(CHORUS)

I used to think it was
Only me feeling alone
Not feeling free to be alive
To be a friend

Now I know we all
Have stormy weather
The sun shines through
When we're together

I'll be your friend
Right through to the end

(CHORUS)

Open the door and come on in
I'm so glad to
See you, my friends
You're all like rainbows
Coming around the bend

And when I see you happy
Well, it sets my heart free
I'd like to be as
Good a friend to you
As you are to me

    My wife's name was judith. She died from cancer on 12/5/2011. This song gives me hope that she'll come back to me, even though i know that is not possible. It is an inspirational song, none the less. Thank you judy!
