"Let My Love Open The Door" as written by and Pete Townshend....
When people keep repeating
That you'll never fall in love
When everybody keeps retreating
But you can't seem to get enough

Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door
To your heart

When everything feels all over
Everybody seems unkind
I'll give you a four-leaf clover
Take all worry out of your mind

Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door
To your heart, to your heart

I have the only key to your heart
I can stop you falling apart
Try today you'll find this way
Come on and give me a chance to say

Let my love open the door
It's all I'm living for
Release yourself from misery
There's only one thing gonna set you free
That's my love
That's my love

Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door

When tragedy befalls you
Don't let it drag you down
Love can cure your problems
You're so luck I'm around

Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door
Let my love open the door
To your heart

    General Commentactually pete meant this to be a very spiritual song, about god's love, (not in xian sense, of course, look up meher baba). But he sang it in first person and it ended up sounding like pop fluff, like some high school kid trying to get a date.

    General CommentPete's not gay! Why does everyone think that? He may be bisexual, I don't know, but he's married and has kids! This song is great, a pure pop song, but I still love it!

    General CommentI think rodneyj's right about Townshend's wanting this to be a spiritual song, and he was a follower of Meher Baba.

    I don't think the song sounds too fluffy, though. It might, except that you can tell from Pete's voice that he's completely sincere, which is what makes it such a beautiful song.

    General CommentThis is a real strong song about a promise to someone that he'll take of them if they let his love "open the door" to who they are. The message is basically, I love you and I know we can save each other because that what love does.
    The mood of the song is very hopeful.

    General CommentI always found it thought-provoking that this song would be followed some years later with "Secondhand Love" from The White City album.
    I always wondered what happened in Petes' life in-between the two songs.

    General CommentIn the beginning of this song, does it sound like Final Fantasy music to anyone else?

    General CommentGet real, guys. This is Pete Townshend's big coming-out-admitting-I'm-gay song. It took great personal courage for him to admit it publicly, because then he finally had to really admit it to himself. In 1996 his big charity performance of this song for his birthday bash was simply him standing solo in front of a mike, with three gigantic rearprojection screens behind him showing slides of his life from infancy to current age. At the finish of the song the mostly Hollywood celeb audience was in tears as they gave him a unanimous standing O.
    As with most really great composers, much of his work has deep meaning about the love of God, Christian or not, for each of us.

    General Commentbtw, do you think it coincidental Townshend recorded an entirely new version of this song for John Cusack in Grosse Pointe Blank?
    Watch the scene in which the song is played and you'll get it.
