Verse 1
I hear you knocking on the door
But you ain't never comin' in, no,no
To this house no more
'Cause it ain't like
It ain't like it was before
Verse 2
You went sailin' on for that distant shore
Oh, oh, oh
True, we had love so true
Oh and we had skies so blue
We had skies so blue
Verse 3
So I, I had my hopes up high
Till all I heard was goodbye
When I called for you
I turn the key, you twist the knife
I can't win, no I can't win
Verse 4
Now you're knockin' on the door
But you can't come in
Oh no
So you can take it on the chin
Yeah you take it on your weak chin
Verse 5
Then you do it all again and again
Tell me when will it end
And now you come back
Oh yeah, you crawled on back
With your head held high and
Verse 6
Your book of lies in a burlap sack
I just don't know, honey, what went wrong
Love just can't grow when you're gone so long
I turn the key, you twist the knife
I can't win, no I can't win
Verse 7
Now you're knockin' on the door
But you can't come in
Oh no
Oh you just don't know
Which way the wind is going to blow
Verse 8
No, you just don't know
Just when the sky is going to fall
Verse 9
You've been a soldier
You've been a privateer
Now you're looking much older
Yes you are my dear
Now your back again
Verse 10
From the lion's den
You've got a plagiarist's eye
You've got a poison pen
I turn the key, you twist the knife
I can't win, no I can't win
Verse 11
Now you're knockin' on the door
But you can't come in
Oh no
Oh you just don't know
Which way the wind is going to blow
Verse 12
No, you just don't know
Just when the sky is going to fall
Love can bend you, love can break
Hearts can mend and hearts can ache
Life will give you what you take
Verse 13
Oh, life will give you what you take
Love can bend you, love can break
Hearts can mend and hearts can ache
Life will give you what you take
Oh, life will give you what you take
