"Open Door" as written by and Michael Rutherford....
I see your smiling face, by the open door
There's the morning light
Shining in your hair, and in your eyes

And just a little way behind that smile of yours
I see another one, oh so far away
If only for one second, I could hold you close to me
When the Master calls for me again
There's nothing I can say, or I can do

Goodbye, my love
Time has come to say farewell
I hear the call again
Goodbye to the world
I've shouted for so long
Oh there's so much my love, that I can never say

And in a little while, in a little while
There's nothing left to see

As the years go by and I have not returned
And the night has come, falling all around
Ooh if you count the stars you'll know
How many have gone out
And when the Master calls for me again
There's nothing that I can say
Or I can do

Stand in the sun
Shut your eyes and feel the world
It's changing every day
Goodbye my love
Each day will seem so long
Ooh there's so much I feel, that I can never say

I can't see you
I can't feel you anymore
I've just a memory of that open door

    General CommentFrom "Three Sides Live". I always imagined it from the perspective of sailor who must travel to make a living and leaving his love behind. For some reason, he's away for a very long time (shipwrecked?) or he returns home to find her gone (or dead).
