  • Lyrics: 1. (spoken) A man says to himself, “Open any door and something unforeseen will happen. Events always occur at the edges of things: A current flickers where sunlight licks your skin. A small movement at the edge of a woods makes you stop, and suddenly you see the fox, her eyes locked with yours. Or at the end of some late winter afternoon, sensations from childhood, long-buried, return strong and unbidden: the Dream World has come knocking. A shutter is banging somewhere; it’s a sound I can almost place. (sung) Have a little faith in your journey to bring you what you need A universe waits in the smallest seed Everywhere you look is more proof as if you needed more Keep the channels open there’s a signal coming through A world of miracles is all around you And if you think that this is all there is Open any door open any door open any door 2. (spoken) A man writes, “My lover leaves and I lose sight of her among the 3 a.m. trees. A wind comes up made of sage grass and September rain. I watch the fires burning across the river and feel for the heat in me that has gone cold. The willows flow against the stars and the river keeps moving, but tonight I am hollow, my gifts are gone, and there is nothing left. I am finally and forever alone in this world. But suddenly, from somewhere deeper among the trees, a bird calls my name. (sung) Have a little faith in your journey to bring you what you need A universe waits in the smallest seed Everywhere you look is more proof as if you needed more Keep the channels open there’s a signal coming through A world of miracles is all around you And if you think that this is all there is Open any door open any door open any door 3. (spoken) A man tells his children, “Once when I was a child I had a dream, and in this dream I went to the edge of a woods where I found, buried beneath a tree, a plastic Indian riding a plastic horse. When I woke up, I found the tree and dug the figure out of the dirt, just like in my dream, every detail sharp as glass. I thought nothing of it at the time, but how do we explain these things? (sung) Have a little faith in your journey to bring you what you need A universe waits in the smallest seed Everywhere you look is more proof as if you needed more Keep the channels open there’s a signal coming through A world of miracles is all around you And if you think that this is all there is Open any door open any door open any door
