Lyrics

OPEN THE DOOR

Safe for the morning
Try to stay safe all day
But the nighttime drops that coat of calm to the floor…
How can it be, that a man can see
He’s afraid and still ignore
An entire lifetime wasted running away?

So if you see the dark cloud forming,
There could be more--
Oh, Naomi, open the door
And if you feel your teardrops warning:
Heartache in store,
Oh, Naomi, open the door

There’s an icy wind, blows out of nowhere
Somehow creeps into control
Spins my head around till I don’t know where I stand
I fall down,
I get up,
I spin round and round
Like a compass that can’t find north
Five fingers that can’t find their hand!‘

So if you hear the dark side calling
There could be more
Oh Naomi, open the door…
And if you find your hopes start falling
And you don’t know what for
Oh, Naomi, open the door

I’ve taken up this pen and some paper
Trying to work out in rhyme,
Hoping the magic of verse will bring some meaning to mind
Oh,
But I could chase a million words and letters
And never capture the truth
Of what I feel in my heart
Or the grace of the love living in you--
So remember this, whatever you do

If you see the dark clouds calling
There could be more
Oh, Naomi, open the door
And if you feel your teardrops falling
That’s what they’re for
Oh, Naomi, open the door
Oh, Naomi, open the door
