Open Mind


I would throw myself underneath

The wheels of any train of thought

Running off the rails or sail you through

The rogue waves of your brain

If I could bring a light to shine

Upon the dark and disobey

The night so young

But I still say we're too old

For cliches

Oh I can only dream of the dreams we'd share

If you were so inclined

I would love to be the one to open up your mind

I could base my whole existence

Upon the cherry strands of your gold hair

I would ask almost insist upon

Treating you kind and fair

Oh I can only dream of the dreams we'd have

How our hearts would be entwined

If you would let me be the one to open up your mind

I'll still be myself beneath

The banks unbroken beside the stream

Ready to return your thoughts unlearned

So it goes

So it seems

Oh I can only dream of the dreams we'd share

If you weren't so defined

I would love to be the one to open up your mind

If you would let me be the one to open up your mind
