Open Door

open door

Written by Dallas Green and Alecia Moore


 
I recall a time when you and I would talk a little more
To each other face to face through love and war
When I knew there’d always be an open door for me
But I know that home is just a place I always leave behind
It’s with me everywhere I go when I close my eyes
I know someday I’ll catch you in the by-and-by
I know
I know
Dear mother, I know I have been away for far too long
Dear mother, I hope you understand it when you hear this song
‘Cause you taught me how to be right in a world gone wrong
Gone wrong
But it ain’t
Ain’t how long you live it’s how you live your life
Burn bright until the grave
Don’t shy away from the light
‘Cause I won’t waste my days
I will use my time
My time
My time
Dear father, I know I have been away for far too long
Dear father, I know you’ll understand it when you hear this song
‘Cause you taught me how to be right in a world gone wrong
Gone wrong
I recall a time when you and I would talk a little more
To each other face to face through love and war
Well I hope there will always be an open door
For me
