JUST OPEN YOUR HANDS

Copyright 2008 Ė Robert E. Shandor

 

Hey little baby

Some times you act so crazy

You prob'ly think your life's gone wrong

I know your heart's been broken

The words you've never spoken

So I thought I'd write you this simple song

I'm hopin that you'll hear what's between the lines

And put all your troubles to rest

There's a million people try to tell you the way

But I like this one the best..

 

Just open your hands and open your heart

That's the only way you get to make a new start

Open your eyes and open your mind

That's the only way you'll leave the past behind you now

 

Hey little honey

I'd gladly give you money

But it won't buy what you need

Why not take time

Maybe share mine

Learn to put your mind at ease

You know you really shouldn't put yourself down

Quit thinkin' life has passed you by

No need to keep believing that there's no way to change

'Cause here is somethin' easy to try

 

Just open your hands and open your heart

That's the only way you get to make a new start

Open your eyes and open your mind

That's the only way you'll leave the past behind you now

 

Just open your hands and open your heart

That's the only way you get to make a new start

Open your eyes and open your mind

That's the only way you'll leave the past behind

 

You can be strong, and you can stand tall

You only get better when you rise from a fall

Meet the new day, it's ready for you

You know your own answers you've got nothing to lose

 

So go ahead, and roll out the dice
You donít need to wait around and seek out advice
Take a deep breath and step up to bat
You may find out itís just as s
imple as that

 

Open your hands, and open your heart
Thatís the only way you get to make a new start
Open your eyes, and open your mind
Thatís the only way youíll leave the past behind you now
 

Just open your hands, and open your heart
Thatís the only way you get to make a new start
Open your eyes, and open your mind
Thatís the only way youíll leave the past behind

 

Open your hands, and open your heart
Thatís the only way you get to make a new start
Open your eyes, and open your mind
Thatís the only way youíll leave the past behind
 

Open your hands, and open your heart
Thatís the only way...
