Podcast #43 – Open Wide

“Beyond Repair” was the prompt. I thought about the things in my life that have been completely destroyed, all the pain and heartache and blessing. 🙂 Really, sometimes things have to be broken apart so better things can take place. We aren’t meant to live perfect lives. We have to open up, take chances, risk ourselves. I’ve had a fair share of heartbreak. No one is exempt. We all get broken and we are all involved in “breaking” other people. The whole process is really a gift. It destroys the world we’ve built up around us to get to the sweet and glorious center of us all: pure love. We can keep trying to cover it back up again, trying to protect ourselves from feeling any pain but, I think we are meant for a more intense experience. I’m really trying to not hold back because of fear. Believe me, I have that voice that gives me all the reasons I shouldn’t try, shouldn’t trust, shouldn’t care. I’m learning to ignore it, let myself hurt if it comes to that because, there’s always something beautiful on the other side. I’m beginning to see that it doesn’t have to hurt every time.

Open Wide

All the things you thought you were
All the things you thought were right
Sell them like the furniture
Worse for wear now under hard light
Fading with the stars
Up against the sky

All the things you want to say
And everything, you say, is just fine
Take it like a man, take a stand
Take a real hard line
Building up the wall
No one could ever climb

But, the best laid plans
Aren’t yours to make
Put your heart in someone’s hands
And let them break it
Open wide
There’s nothing like that brilliant light
Open wide
it’s only gonna come from the inside
Open wide
Everything gets broken
To be purified

All the things you promise to
Promise me, you won’t play fair
No one wants an easy route
They just want to know you care
There’s nothing you can do
It’s all beyond repair

‘Cause the best laid plans
Aren’t yours to make
Put your heart in someone’s hands
And let them break it
Open wide
There’s nothing like that brilliant light
Open wide
it’s only gonna come from the inside
Open wide
Everything gets broken
To be purified

Nothing that you’re holding back
Can stand against the tide
It all comes tumbling down
It’s only time, you know it’s time

So, open wide
There’s nothing like that brilliant light
Open wide
it’s only gonna come from the inside
Open wide
Everything gets broken
To be purified
