Lyrics

You’re an open book
With some pages torn
Stitched onto a spine so gently worn
And the hands that hold the binding,
That once shuttered closed and shook,
Invite me in like an open book

Chorus:
And I never have to read between the lines
The story’s your's, and your's is mine
Waiting patient on the dusty shelves of time
With all this love to find
Given the choice to look,
Spilling from your heart like an open book

You’re an open book
And when I’ve lost my way
Searching my pages for words to say
You offer up your poetry
With the ease of a single look
And guide me back like an open book

And I never have to read between the lines
The story’s your's and your's is mine
Waiting patient on the dusty shelves of time
With all this love to find
Given the choice to look,
Spilling from our hearts like an open book

In all those years we kept the cover closed,
So fearful of what might be exposed,
I was blindly hoping…
Barely coping…
With these words unspoken
Wanting to be opened, to be opened

(lead break)

We never have to read between the lines
My story’s your's and your's is mine
Until we’re placed up on the dusty shelves of time
With all this love to find,
Given the choice to look,
Spilling from our hearts like an open book,
Spilling from our hearts like an open book
