Open the door of your heart dear,
For love stands waiting outside.
Pray leave the portals ajar dear,
Love will come in and abide.
Love will come back to the home nest.
Love will be love as of old.
Open your heart and let love rest.
Love that will never grow old.
Ah! Ah! Waiting a kind word from you. Ah! Ah!
Love will forever be true.
Deep in your eyes Love is reading
Hope that will never depart.
Though you delay,
Love finds a way,
Open the door of your heart.
