Turn The Key - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

You build me up
Then you make me fall
With a little more love
You could make it easy
I'm standing here
With my back to the wall
I keep holding on
You've been around
That's what i've heard
With a little more time
We could get together
You hang around
In your own little world
I keep holding on

A light shining in my life
A fire that is burning
I've never been this way before
You know that the time is right
To keep the flame burning
Turn the key and you'll open the door

Give me more

You shoot me down
My defences are low
With a little more love
You could make it better
I'm standing here
Wondering where do we go
I keep holding on

A light shining in my life
A fire that is burning
I've never been this way before
You know that the time is right
To keep the flame burning
Turn the key and you'll open the door

Give me more

A light shining in my life
A fire that is burning
I've never been this way before
You know that the time is right
To keep the flame burning
Turn the key and you'll open the door
