Behind Closed Doors


Husband and wife may live their lives
In their home that's filled with pride.
It matters not how the mighty tiger roars,
You don't know what goes on behind closed doors.

Husband and wife should try to be
A living example for others to see,
But no one knows when the tiger roars
Of what goes on behind closed doors.
THE SUN WILL SHINE AGAIN I don't know why days are sad,
filled with grief and pain;
I don't know why the clouds are dark,
But the sun will shine again.

I don't know why the skies are gray,
filled with fog and rain;
I don't know why hearts are lonely
But the sun will shine again
I don't know why the skies are gray
filled with fog and rain;
I don't know why hearts are lonely
But the sun will shine again.
I don't know why nights are long
filled with headaches and pains;
I don't know what life holds for me
But the sun will shine again.

Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
