Track Name: Prelude / Open Like A Door
Pull the blinds, open the window
And let the sunlight come through
Feel the fresh air blow back your hair
And let the new day enter you
Tear down the walls, no matter how tall
Let nothing stand in your way
The critics and clowns will all gather 'round
And marvel at the brightness of the day

Pull up a chair and settle in
I’m no confessor and I can’t forgive your sin
But I will listen like a bartender and offer you a sigh
Lay your fears upon my ears
I’ll never ask you why
I don’t have to say a word
But I can give you my advice, if that’s what you prefer
Though I’ve never studied medicine or problems of the mind
So there’s no telling what realities we’ll find

Chorus:
Let your conversation flow
Let your storm of sorrow pour
I will be gentle like the autumn
Open like a door

We’ve known each other for too long
So don’t hold back when I can see that something’s wrong
Don’t fool yourself to thinking it’s a thing you can disguise
Storing up your problems in your shoulders and your eyes
Like a soldier on his guard you stand
Is that what you really think it takes to be a man?
When you reach the breaking point
You’ll snap like rotten wood
Settle in and let it out
You know it feels so good

(Chorus)

Pull up a chair and settle in
Go ahead and make yourself as comfortable as sin
And I’ll listen like a bartender and offer you a sigh
Grab a beer, I’ll lend an ear
And never ask you why

(Chorus)
