Love and all that crazy madness

My husband and I watched a movie this evening, Dan in Real Life.  It was a sweet little love story, saved from being overly vanilla by Steve Carell and Juliette Binoche – I just adore both of them.

I was reacquainted with an old favorite song by Pete Townsend, Let My Love Open the Door.  It’s so lovely, and I feel very happy when I hear it – like I want to get up and dance.  Here are the lyrics.

When people keep repeating

That you’ll never fall in love

When everybody keeps retreating

But you can’t seem to get enough

Let my love open the door

Let my love open the door

Let my love open the door

To your heart

When everything feels all over

When everybody seems unkind

I’ll give you a four-leaf clover

Take all the worry out of your mind

Let my love open the door

Let my love open the door

Let my love open the door

To your heart I have the only key to your heart

I can stop you falling apart

Try today, you’ll find this way

Come on and give me a chance to say

Let my love open the door

It’s all I’m living for

Release yourself from misery

Only one thing’s gonna set you free

That’s my love

Let my love open the door

Let my love open the door

Let my love open the door

To your heart

When tragedy befalls you

Don’t let them bring you down

Love can cure your problem

You’re so lucky I’m around

Let my love open the door

Let my love open the door

Let my love open the door

To your heart
