She Let Him In
 
Lyrics
VERSE
He was playing his guitar; she was coming down the street
She walked over, requested her favorite song
He looked her in the eye, smiled, played it sweet
Near the end, she smiled back, then she was gone

VERSE
It took him a while; he found her; she was glad he did
Their love was complete, but they were not alone
He had a mistress; the music of a mixed-up kid
He had to go; it pulled him away; destinations unknown

CHORUS
Though he was gone, he was never alone
Neither was she
It was as though they were never apart
(Ooh) Shared heart
One morning he was asleep on her front porch
He seemed at peace
She knew it was wrong, but when he came home
Oooh, she let him in

VERSE
The love in their hearts was good, never fade away
But the same could not be said for his mind
After a time, his eyes would vanish into yesterday
Like a drug, his tortured soul would break the ties that bind

Repeat CHORUS

VERSE
As the years went slowly by, she never sat and cried
She just kept an eye on her front porch
One day she found him there, but there was nothing left to share
All she could do then was carry a torch

CHORUS
He had made it to her porch one last time
He had come to her
All he had left was his guitar and her love
But, no matter, that was enough
Yes, every time he came home, oh, she let him in

They met. Fell in love. But he was a road musician and he would leave and then come back. When he did, she would let him back in. Finally, one day, he came back but died on her front porch in the middle of the night. She found him. Now she just carries a torch. It was a great love, but it was interrupted by the pull of the music.
