When You Open Your Heart
by John Beccia

Do you see all the beauty around you?
Possibilities wide as the sky
See it all, don’t let it pass through you
Seize it all, it all will come to you
When you open........... when you open your heart

There is power and change in each moment
There is life in the tiniest leaf
See it all, it’s taking and giving
Seize it all, there’s reason for living
When you open........... when you open your heart

Morning warmness from the light in the skies
Sun is rising when you open your eyes

There’s a path to be made through this forest
There is moss in the shade of the trees
See it all, and touch it’s green coolness
Seize it all, it’s wise to be foolish
When you open........... when you open your heart

Evening stillness in the dusk of the day
Orange reflections, as sunset takes you away

In the crack between daylight and nightime
There are magical dreams to be had
See it all, it’s there for the reaping
Seize it all, it’s yours for the keeping
When you open........... when you open your heart
When you open your heart
