lyrics

A long time ago
I locked something away
I can't remember what it was
But I know I'll find it someday
And when I do
I will come for you and say
I remember

I have tried every key that I own on this door
But it won't open for me
It won't open
I have knocked real loud
I've rung the bell, ding-dong
It still won't open for me
No, it won't open

Oh, won't you please help me
To find the key?

Wait a minute, now, it's comin' back to me
The day you left I locked myself
And now I am as you see
But if I can, I'll return to be
As I remember

But I have tried every key that I own on this door
And it won't open for me
No, it won't open
I have knocked real loud
I've rung the bell, ding-dong
It still won't open for me
No, it won't open

Oh, won't you please help me
To find the key?

Maybe I'm better off not knowin'
What it was I left inside
Maybe I'd better be goin'
Leave that key among the others to hide
And maybe I've thought all of this before
And maybe I will do it all again
Maybe I'll find another door
Maybe I'll finally get in

I have tried every key that I own on this door
But it won't open for me
It won't open
I have knocked real loud
I've rung the bell, ding-dong
It still won't open for me
No, it won't open

Oh, won't you please help me
To find the key?
Oh, won't you please help me
To find the key?
