Jeff Buckley – Opened Once lyrics

I once was open and one with a travelling heart.
I loved this sweet guy.
Just like a 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.
We fly right over the minds of so many in pain.
We are the smile of light that brings them 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.
