"Behind That Locked Door" as written by and George Harrison....
Why are you still crying?
Your pain is now through
Please forget those teardrops
Let me take them for you
The love you are blessed with
This world's waiting for
So let out your heart please, please
From behind that locked door

It's time we start smiling
What else should we do?
With only this short time
I'm gonna be here with you
And the tales you have taught me
From the things that you saw
Makes me want out your heart, please, please
From behind that locked door

And if ever my love goes
If I'm rich or I'm poor
Come and let out my heart, please, please
From behind that locked door

    General CommentThis is a song that is scarcely appreciated because it is overshadowed by the other tracks on All Things Must Pass. When I bought the album, I listened to this song and really identified with the lyrics. It was so beautiful and i'll always remember crying myself to sleep that night.

    Lyric CorrectionI'm pretty sure he says "let me take them from you" (forth line)

    General Comment"All Things Must Pass" was my Musical Bible for years. It's still my favorite album!!
    Somehow I remember that "Behind That Locked Door" was written with a few other songs when George was visiting Bob Dylan. That meeting produced "I'd Have You Anytime" and "If Not For You!!"
    I thought "Behind That Locked Door" may have been written for Bob Dylan by George!!.
