Russian folk group Koleso St Petersburg perform in English 'The Closed Door' from John Farndon's musical 'Anya'. Anya sings a song about Russian women. How a Russian woman's heart is like a cottage in winter. How if she does not love you, all you will see is a barred door, and you will be left outside in the cold, seeing nothing but blank walls, while you freeze. But once she lets you in you will find a warm hearth, a place of light and joy, with thick walls to keep out the winter, a place of protection and warmth. A place of strength, love and care forever. Louis is listening, and feels this song is for him.

You stand in the cold with your cap in your hand
The chill of rejection you can't understand
As winter enfolds you and pierces your skin
And your heart freezes slowly then snaps
Outside the close door.

You gave her your love; yes, you showed her your pain
But all she gave back was a smile of disdain
You sank to your knees as she looked down her nose
And she turned away quietly to leave you
Outside the closed door.

But for the man who is lucky and finds the right path
Once she lets him in, he will find a warm hearth
And strong walls to protect him -- a place full of joy
He'll be safe behind the closed door.

Outside through the dark night you stumble alone
You curse all the fates for the cruelty they've shown
As your limbs start to quiver and your heavy eyes droop
A shaft of light spills on the road
From an opening door...

You're the man who is lucky, you've found the right path
Now she's let you in, you will find a warm hearth
And strong walls to protect you -- a place full of joy
You'll be safe behind the closed door.
