lyrics

Open

You asked me for my word of the year
And I told you, plainly, it was ‘open’.
But for the longest time I’ve felt so closed
Where the vaults simply rusted or broken?

So won’t you tell me to look into your eyes?
So that you will know my heart beats for this very moment
Ask me to strip away the layers
So that I dwell in the call of your 'now'


So open me up, oh lungs won’t you breathe again
For the moments we’ve lost will never be retrieved.
So open me up, to what I hold most dear
So the moments we’ve shared will always keep you ever near.


You asked me how I was really doing
And I lied, plainly, that I was ‘fine’.
But for the longest time I’ve felt so cold
Where the chambers simply frosted or frozen?

So won’t you tell me to look into your eyes?
So that you will know my heart beats for this very moment
Ask me to strip away the layers
So that I dwell in the call of your 'now'


So open me up, oh lungs won’t you breathe again
For the moments we’ve lost will never be retrieved.
So open me up, to what I hold most dear
So the moments we’ve shared will always keep you ever near.


How I long to hold your stare
And remain in your give
But I’m circling these runways
And time won’t forgive.

So open me up, oh lungs won’t you breathe again
For the moments we’ve lost will never be retrieved.
So open me up, to what I hold most dear
So the moments we’ve shared will always keep you ever near.

about

Whisper Anthem London, UK

Daniel Tissingh began playing a found and broken classical guitar – repaired by a Venezuelan electrician – spending his pre- teen years in community housing in southern Spain with the constant ebb and flow of diverging nationalities and ages, and myriad musical delights. At 14 he used his saved pocket money to buy a 30 watt amp, 2 plectrums, a lead and a very rusty-stringed fake Strat. ... more
