You take away the breath I was keeping for sunrise
You appear and the morning looks drab in my eyes
And then again I'll turn down love
Having seen you again
Once more you'll disappear
My morning put to shame

You take away the breath I was keeping for sunrise
You appear and the morning looks drab in my eyes
And then again I'll turn down love
Having seen you again
Once more you'll disappear
My morning put to shame

Sometimes I fear that this will go on my life through
Each day I spend in an echoed vision of you
And then again I'll turn down love
Remembering your smile
My every day is spent
Thinking of you all the while

The times I've let myself down
My head's spinning 'round
My eyes see only you
The chances I've lost
Opportunities tossed
Away and into the blue

You take away the breath I was keeping for sunrise
You appear and the morning looks drab in my eyes
And then again I'll turn down love
Having seen you again
Then again you'll disappear
My morning put to shame

    If this had been written in 1968, I might have thought he was writing about his Avatar, Meher Baba but since Sell Out was released in '67, I guess he writing about Karen Astley, the future Mrs. Townshend who he wed in '68, who was the girl of his dreams.
    But you got to be careful with interpreting Pete. "Let My Love Open the Door" was not a message from a lover or a potential lover, but according to Townshend, is the promise of love Jesus Christ has for all of us. I just love the inclusiveness of eastern religions!
