Close Another Door lyrics

Many years have passed, it seems,
And I am all alone.
Ive sent the children far away
To some obscure unknown.

(chorus)
Its so sad,
So sad.
Close another door.
Listen to my eyes.
Close another door.
Youre much too old to work,
So wont you run away?

I was young, I used to say
That age wont bother me.
The life I had was very sad,
It all went out to sea

(repeat chorus)

Though the sun is in outside,
The rain is in my hair.
Now my life is lived inside,
My home is in my chair.

(repeat chorus)

(slower...repeat...fade)
Let me go.
Send me flowers and
Put me on a plane.
Ive paid before,
So Ive been told
At least Im alive
