Song Description

A song of reassurance for a man who was helped by affection and care from such a woman. She is letting him know that she is leaving town and cannot now be there for him. That he must stop hanging around looking for her, and that he is now stronger than he thinks he is.

Story Behind the Song

A woman who is now leaving after providing, adult love and comfort to some lonely men in her town. She is reassuring one particular man, who she helped when he was very low and lonely, that he will cope without her and is much stronger now.

There's no light in my window,
why do you think I'm open for business, somehow?
Just don't hang around in the street like this,
I can't even kiss you, although I miss you,
I'm all closed up and out of touch......SO

There's no light in my window, no, no business,
why do you think I'm working now?
Can't take a small risk, or see my client list,
I have to say goodbye somehow........BUT

CHORUS Why are you still hoping, why do you keep waiting,
for me to still help you now.
For the times that I soothed you,
when your days were so blue,
understand, I can't be there now......

I can see you inthe street,
you look around and shuffle feet,
still hang about the town.
But, I'm not open for business,
I won't even blow a swift kiss,
you are mistaken in your plan......

You are stronger than you think, not so desperate for our link
I don't think you need me, now.
You can make it like I will,
not just hang around -- 'till
someone else can give you some care.
I remember, with some fondness,
I comforted your lost bliss,
and held you when you were all alone.
But, now, there's no light in my window,
I'm not open for business,
and I think that I will probably leave town....

CHORUS In the streets and the side-walks,
couples huddle in their talk,
but it doesn't lead to business, now.
So please hear what I'm saying,
this life is really fraying,
I can't keep you going anymore.

Now, move on Mr Punter, you've heard me, Mr Punter,
move on and say goodbye. This street is closed for business,
petitions, police, too much risk, this street is closed for business now......I'll

Things move on and defeat us, betray lives, try to beat us,
so please survive , Mr Punter,
You might find someone one day,
I shall wish it , with my heart pray, for us all,
'cause there's no business, now..
Blow a kiss for your pillow, when you dream, turn the lights low,
as the business you miss fades away.
when I'm far in the distance,
you must find some resistance,
don't think that I'll come back this way.

I'm not open for business,
no, not open for business,
I'm not open for business now......
