Oh, I hear familiar sounds down the sidewalk
Gettin' closer with every step he takes
Lord, I'm so afraid that if I look out the window
I'll be tempted to repeat an old mistake

Don't open that door to an old memory
When he said goodbye, I locked it up tight
And threw out the key, I've stood here before
Lord I can't stand no more, won't go there again
Heart don't let him in, don't open that door

The stronger me has found the will to fight it
But now he's gone and the weaker side's in tears
Lord, it took so long to put the hurt behind me
If I don't look back the past can't find me here

Don't open that door to an old memory
When he said goodbye, I locked it up tight
And threw out the key, I've stood here before
Lord I can't stand no more, won't go there again
Heart don't let him in, don't open that door

Won't go there again
Heart don't let him in, don't you open that door
