Another noon-day quiet
Another thimble of wine
It tastes of regret
It tastes of desire
You put out the latch string so long ago
Hopin’ someone would come in
Graceful and tattered, the latch string hangs on
Through rain, snow and chagrin

Open the door, the sun rushes in
Open the sun, the light rushes in
Open the light, the love rushes in
Rushes in

You want to stop time
And sit by the fire
With all those you’ve loved
Who’ve already gone
Dancing with ghosts in the living room
Stoking the coals in the keeping room
Hopin’ that someone would tap at the door
But not even the raven comes round anymore

Open the door, the sun rushes in
Open the sun, the light rushes in
Open the light, the love rushes in
Rushes in

You peek through the keyhole and feel the warm glow
Of a choir of sunflowers singin’ ya gold
Shy for the light, but you know it’s past time
To take a deep breath and step outside

Open the door, the sun rushes in
Open the sun, the light rushes in
Open the light, the love rushes in
Rushes in

Open the door, the sun rushes in
Open the sun, the light rushes in
Open the light, the love rushes in
Rushes in
