lyrics

Open up the blind
No don't be afraid
You've been hiding behind it so many days
That I think you forgot that sunshine is outside

You don't have to meet no one's eye
You can gaze at treetops when you walk by
If they ask your name, you can just call out
Something wild and strange

And the future you have written
In the margins can come true
It will rise to you unbidden
Like the steam that rises over all the gloom

Cause I've seen you with head in your hands
There lamenting mistakes that we've made
But here the bird comes, pecks at your window
So open it, don't be afraid...yeah...

Down by the rushes
Where willows wind
We would sit for hours
We would lose the time
Then you'd leap up and clear the stream in just one bound

The whole world was that stream for you
You leaped over all the sad things we'd do
Did you lose somewhere that pair you had of
Rocket powered shoes?

And the future you have written
In the margins can come true
It will rise to you unbidden
Like the steam that rises over all the gloom

Cause I've seen you with head in your hands
There lamenting mistakes that we've made
But here the bird comes, pecks at your window
So open it, don't be afraid...yeah...

It's so hard to go back outside
When you feel you're the victim of everyone's eyes
And there's so much about this past year
That you just can't explain

You won't have to
I'll walk with you
I'll deflect all their stares with my cheap mirrored jewels
And if you should stumble
Just take it as a chance to find marbles and treasures on the ground...yeah...
Now the puzzle has scattered wide
And some pieces of it
Have tried to hide
But they're out there, under rocks and under stars

I'll go searching, I've wanted to
Since the very first time that I met you
And the corners of all of your notes they were crowded
With drawings and tall tales

And the future you have written
In the margins can come true
It will rise to you unbidden
Like the steam that rises over all the gloom

So no more sit with head in your hands
There lamenting mistakes that we've made
Open the blind and open your heart
There's no reason now to be afraid ...yeah...
