Don’t Open That Door

Don’t Open That Door

Loretta Lynn

Oh, I hear familiar sounds down the sidewalk
Gettin' closer with every step he takes
Lord, I'm so afraid that if I look out the window
I'll be tempted to repeat an old mistake.

[Chorus]
Don't open that door
To an old memory,
When he said goodbye
I locked it up tight
And threw out the key.
I've stood here before
Lord I can't stand no more
Won't go there again
Heart don't let him in
Don't open that door.

The stronger me has found the will to fight it
But now he's gone and the weaker side's in tears
Lord, it took so long to put the hurt behind me
If I don't look back the past can't find me here.

[Chorus]

Won't go there again
Heart don't let him in
Don't you open that door
