opened once lyrics – jeff buckley

i once was open and one with a traveling heart
i loved this sweet god
and just like the fiction rushing in your riverbed
arise like applause in my head

and in the half-light, where we both stand
this is the half-light, see me as i am

just like the ocean, always in love with the moon
it’s overflowing now, inside you
and we fly right over the minds of so many in pain
we are the smile of light that brings the rain

in the half-light, where we both stand
in the half-light, you saw me as i am

i am a railroad track abandoned
with the sunset forgetting i ever happened
that i ever happened

/ jeff buckley lyrics
