Hands Open

Album: Eyes Open (2006)
  • It's hard to argue when
    you won't stop making sense
    But my tongue still misbehaves and it
    keeps digging my own grave with my

    Hands open, and my eyes open
    I just keep hoping
    That your heart opens

    Why would I sabotage
    The best thing that I have
    Well, it makes it easier to know
    Exactly what I want with my
    Hands open and my eyes open
    I just keep hoping
    that your heart opens

    It's not as easy as willing it all to be right
    Gotta be more than hoping it's right
    I wanna hear you laugh like you really mean it
    Collapse into me, tired with joy

    It's not as easy as willing it all to be right
    Gotta be more than hoping it's right
    I wanna hear you laugh like you really mean it
    Collapse into me, tired with joy

    Put Sufjan Stevens on
    and we'll play your favorite song
    "Chicago" bursts to life and your
    sweet smile remembers you, my
    Hands open, and my eyes open
    I just keep hoping
    That your heart opens

    It's not as easy as willing it all to be right
    Gotta be more than hoping it's right
    I wanna hear you laugh like you really mean it
    Collapse into me, tired with joy

    It's not as easy as willing it all to be right
    Gotta be more than hoping it's right
    I wanna hear you laugh like you really mean it
    Collapse into me, tired with joy

    It's not as easy as willing it all to be right
    Gotta be more than hoping it's right
    I wanna hear you laugh like you really mean it
    Collapse into me, tired with joy

    It's not as easy as willing it all to be right
    Gotta be more than hoping it's right
    I wanna hear you laugh like you really mean it
    Collapse into me, tired with joy
