about

When you finally shut the door, do it quietly ... because, dear heart, making yourself look good at someone else's expense makes you look weak. Sometimes the best response is no response at all. And we all know the old saying .. when one door closes, a better one opens .. come on in ...

lyrics

A change a-comin' in the wind
Tons of sobs and a heart full of pins
Chances are ..
Chances aren't good I'll get out

Knew that someday I would see
All of the reasons she had to be free
Still I sow the seeds
In the shadow of a doubt

So I forgot to slam the door
It doesn't matter anymore
You know I never let them see
You tear me

A brand new chill is in the night
I cross my fingers 'til I feel alright
Chances are ..
Chances aren't good I'll get by

Know that somewhere down the road
She'll forget all the reasons she had to let go
Shouting and counting
And naming the stars in the sky

So I forgot to slam the door
It doesn't matter anymore
You know I never let them see
You tear me ..

(Never let ‘em, never let ‘em, never let ‘em see)
You tear me -
(Never let ‘em, never let ‘em, never let ‘em see)
Oh - you tear me
(Never let ‘em, never let ‘em, never let ‘em see)
Yeah - you tear me
(Never let ‘em, never let ‘em, never let ‘em see)
You tear me -

So I forgot to slam the door
It doesn't matter anymore
You know I never let them see
You tear me ..

(Never let ‘em, never let ‘em, never let ‘em see)
Yeah - you tear me
(Never let ‘em, never let ‘em, never let ‘em see)
You really tear me
(Never let ‘em, never let ‘em, never let ‘em see)
Why doncha’ tear me
(Never let ‘em, never let ‘em, never let ‘em see)
Just tear me .. you really tear me
