Knocking on an Open Door (lyrics)

Knocking On An Open Door

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

 

I’ve tried to fill the hole in my heart

But each time wound up at the start

*

And oh, what’s whole, is whole, that’s all

That is all

Nothing’s wrong

*

And I have had so many names, I watch them fade away

‘Cause I have searched so many worlds, afraid I was too late

And I have told so many lies, but mostly tried to fool my own eyes

And still everything I cried out for, well I was knocking on an open door

*

 

And oh, what’s whole, is whole, that’s all

That is all

Nothing’s wrong

*

And all this sound is singing out and echoing in everything

And even though I’ve run forever still I find it waiting for me

And all this sound is raining down and I cannot say what it is for

But I’ve been knocking on an open door

That is all

*

Freedom’s like love on Halloween

Dressed for a horror scene

Waiting in the deepest dark, to tear apart

Everything we know

*

And oh, what’s whole, is whole, that’s all

And oh, what’s whole, is still whole, that is all

That is all

Nothing’s wrong

That is all

That is all
