“The Key”
Artist: Chris de Burgh
Albums: Far Beyond These Castle Walls (1975)

Each time that I hold you
Your eyes fill with fear
You can't lose control now
The price is too dear
But love I have heard you
Crying in the dark
And the tears on your pillow
Came bleeding
Weeping
From your heart

Oh sinner you're losing
All that you had
Your day is in pieces
Your night has gone mad
And love cannot touch you
The search has no end
And the one you've forgotten
Was really your only friend

Then your soul flies to Heaven
You reach out for me
But the door will not open
You've thrown away the key
No the door will not open
You've thrown away the key

Oh stranger beware
The life that you lead
Is filled with the warnings
You can or will not read
Your castle has fallen
It lies in the sand
I heard your voice calling
I thought I felt the brush
Of your hand

Oh gambler remember
The love that you lend
Will never come back
For the game has no ending
The smiler is calling
Your turn for the deal
And the aces keep falling
With every spin of the wheel

Then you gather your winnings
You're ready to leave
But the door will not open
You've thrown away the key
Oh there's no point in staying
So don't wait to see
For the door will not open
You've thrown away the key
