Open Up Your Heart


There are so many things that divide us
It's hard to imagine, what brings us near
That's why we have to delve at what's inside us
And the deeper reasons why we are here
Spending so much time and energy to fight
While we search for the same things for those we love
We begin to realize even our enemies have a right
To the land, the air, and all the stars above
We all have our disagreements here
But at least on this we can all agree
But we cannot allow ourselves to fear
There's plenty of earth around us to be free

Open up your heart
Open up your head
Open up your heart
Close your mouth instead
Listen and you begin to hear
All those thoughts that we used to hide
You are controlled by fear
And by fear, we are all hurt inside

No man has a monopoly on truth
No one should direct who lives or dies
Remember the innocence we had as a youth
Until breathed into our hearts came the lies
There must be amongst the stars a Creator
Why would he direct me to go and kill someone
Amongst our lives, there's something greater
Billions of us, the sum of everyone, One
The individual is a star that shines bright
Together we all create a vast universe
Don't let an elite rise up to take your right
And tell you that it's all in reverse

Open up your heart
Open up your head
Open up your heart
Close your mouth instead
Listen and you begin to hear
All those thoughts that we used to hide
You are controlled by fear
And by fear, we are all hurt inside

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
