lyrics

KEEPIN' THE WOLF FROM THE DOOR OF MY HEART

DANCIN' IN MY ROOM AS THE DAYLIGHT FADES
MY SILHOUETTE TURNS PIROUETTES ON THE WINDOW SHADE
AN' THERE’S NOTHING SO SAD AS A HEART DANCIN' ALL ALONE

HOW MUCH LOVE DOES IT TAKE TO BREAK THIS SPELL
AN' SHAKE THESE BLUES I KNOW TOO WELL

KEEPIN' THE WOLF FROM THE DOOR OF MY HEART
MEMORIES OF ME AN’ YOU
KEEPIN' THE WOLF FROM THE DOOR OF MY HEART
MEMORIES OF THINGS WE USED TO DO

SLIPPIN' INTO DREAMS AS THE TWILIGHT FALLS
MY FANTASY’S REALITY ’TIL TOMORROW CALLS
AN' THERE’S NOTHING SO SAD AS A HEART DREAMING ON ITS OWN

HOW MUCH FAITH DOES IT TAKE TO MAKE AMENDS
AND WAKE THIS LOVE IN YOU AGAIN

KEEPIN' THE WOLF FROM THE DOOR OF MY HEART
MEMORIES OF ME AN’ YOU
KEEPIN' THE WOLF FROM THE DOOR OF MY HEART
MEMORIES OF THINGS WE USED TO DO

YOUR SMILE YOUR KISS A WORD OR TOUCH
THESE THINGS I MISS SO VERY MUCH

KEEPIN' THE WOLF FROM THE DOOR OF MY HEART
OW-OOO-OOO-OO
KEEPIN' THE WOLF FROM THE DOOR OF MY HEART
MEMORIES OF THINGS WE USED TO DO

KEEPIN' THE WOLF FROM THE DOOR OF MY HEART
KEEPIN' THE WOLF FROM THE DOOR OF MY HEART
(I KNOW IT'S GONNA GET ME IN THE END BUT I GOTTA KEEP TRYIN')
KEEPIN' THE WOLF FROM THE DOOR OF MY HEART
