Hold the door and please turn the key
there's only and wind and rain coming in
Hold the door said turn the key!
one's come to end and the other to begin
if I lose who I am who am I gonna be?
I don't want to start all over again
hold the door said turn the key
if there's hope I just want to believe

the wind blows, and the trumpets sing
worm raise its head to rain in spring
he'll lend flight to the mallards wing
the way the sun gives voice to her little one's beak.
I'll be the boy with the feet in the sea
shirt buttoned tight bursting at the seams
We'll be the boys with the feet in the stream
shirts buttoned tight bursting at the seams
no more trees, no more green
I'll get cold feet, leave my socks on the beach
oh its so cold, I am soon to be alone
mallard flies south searching for a home.

hold that door, please turn the key
there's only wind and rain coming in,
hold that door, I said turn the key
one's come to end and the other to begin.

if I lose who I am who am I gonna be
I don't want to start all over again
Hold the door, said turn the key
if there's hope I just want to believe

One to lose *repeated in background


another to begin again
another to begin (X2)

burn bright and dark as a candle
like winter flowers we'll come alive
too cool to touch! too pretty to handle!
oh but we need that warmth to survive!
burn bright and dark as a candle
like winter flowers we'll come alive
too cool to touch! too pretty to handle!
oh but we need that warmth to survive!

another to begin again
another to begin (X2)

begin, begin

(don't leave me alone outside,
the cascading rain leaves me with little to hide)

hold the door and please turn the key
there's only wind and rain coming in
hold that door said turn the key
one's come to end and the other to begin

if I lose who I am who am I gonna be
I don't want to start all over again
hold that door and turn that key
if there is hope I just want to believe

    General Commenti'm pretty sure it's
    "another to begin again,
    another to begin"

    instead of
    "I want to begin again
    I long to begin"

    amazing song! can't wait to see them again.
