Here are the Taylor lyrics for you:

STANDING AT THE DOOR
(Allan Taylor)

I came through from Germany and drove all through the night
I had to get to Amsterdam to catch an early flight
Just an hour to England and I finally made it home
But all too soon it's over and I have to leave again

I see a lot of places and the living's pretty good
And I'm not sure if I'd change a thing, I don't know if I could
But lately I've been gone to long and the nights at home are few
Give me one more night in England, give me one more night with you

Chorus:
Seems all I do is say goodbye, don't want to leave no more
'Cause the leaving's that much harder when you're standing at the door

Looking to the Lady who guides me home at night
I see her in the distance, she's smiling in the light
I sometimes think she's watching and she's keeping me from harm
As I travel through the lonely night to make it home again
