Hand over hand
I crawl back to land
There is no retreat
That option’s far and away
I have to be brave
But I always did crave
The golden sunlight
It’s been about me
But I’m setting that free
For golden sunlight, oh

[Chorus:]
There’s a door open to walk through
All I want is just beyond
What if I could let my guard down
Into freedom, on and on

Somehow it came out
When I can’t talk about
Someone to help me
As free as I wanna be
I cannot erase
But you helped me face
The songs and the flowers
At last perception
Of my self deception
The songs and the flowers, oh

[Chorus]
There’s a door open to walk through
All I want is just beyond
What if I could let my guard down
Into freedom, on and on

[Bridge]
What if I could just let my guard down
What if I could live wide open, yeah
What if I could just let my guard down
And go beyond into the great unknown

Sweetheart, I’ve been bothered
A golden sun lit path
I’ve been after
Grass hills, wild flowers
Sharp road trails
For a daughter
I want to be her father
I want to hear her laughter
Under meteor showers
The dogs will howl at the midnight hour

[Chorus]
There’s a door open to walk through
All I want is just beyond
What if I could let my guard down
Into freedom, on and on

[Bridge]
What if I could just let my guard down
What if I could live wide open, yeah
What if I could just let my guard down
And go beyond into the great unknown
