Behind the door
Of every house
In every street
In every town
A story as unfolding
A story is unfolding
Of love and hate
Remorseless fate
Of hopes and fears
Of smiles and tears
Of dreams that lie a mouldering

Behind the door
Of every house
In every street
In every town
The stage is set for playing
The stage is set for playing
An act of crime
A pantomime
A sweet romance
A ritual dance
The characters are praying

Behind the door
Of every house
In every street
In every town
The people are awaiting
The people are awaiting
To bear and die
The years go by
The wedding spree
The funeral tea
And still they go a-mating

And to the one the only one
Remember when the need of men is great again
The prayers take off ascending
Propelled with love to the one above
Askin’ for askin’ for askin’ for askin’ for
A happy ending a happy ending
A happy ending
