"I once was open"...
I once was open And one with a travelling heart (...) We are the smile of light that brings them rain In the half light Where we both stand In the half light You saw me as I am (...)
Jeff Buckley - 'Opened Once'
I once was open And one with a travelling heart I loved with disregard
Just like the fiction Rushing in your riverbed Arise like applause in my head
And in the half-light Where we both stand This is the half-light See me as I am
Just like the ocean Always in love with the moon It's overflowing now Inside you
We fly right over The minds of so many in pain We are the smile of light that brings them rain
In the half light Where we both stand In the half light You saw me as I am
I am a railroad track abandoned With the sunset Forgetting I ever happened That I ever happened.
