The Open Door

THE OPEN DOOR

 

You think of yourself as a troubadour
You’ve got everything you want and more
So it’s so hard for you to see what I’m going through

 

Even as I state my reasons why
You misunderstand with all your might
You knew the winds of change were coming soon

 

But I left the door open
I left it wide open

 

I felt it was time to start a new life
I didn’t think that life would start a fight
I never expected the anger you went through

 

I wanted your support as I moved forward
But in that need it seems I’ve struck a chord
It’s clear enough what you won’t ever do

 

But I left the door open
I left it wide open

 

We’re both responsible for the paths we chose
And I let you take on yours without a sound
Everything seemed easier when we were college bound

 

But I left the door open
I left it wide open

 

I really never meant to start a fight
I only tried to do what I know is right…

 

But I left the door open
I left it wide open
