Song Lyric Sunday – Courage

SLS

Helen’s theme for this week is “Courage”. I’ve chosen a less well known song from Diana Ross who I’ve been in love with since the 1960’s when her “Supremes” talent first showed!

How can she possibly be 73? That must make me…..Wow!

 

“Hope Is An Open Window” (christopher ward/tim tickner/diana ross)

Are we not more than hunger and music
Are we not more than harlequins and horns
Are we not more than color and drums
Are we not more than anger and dance
Give me courage so I can spread it over my face and mouth
Give me courage, give me courage
Give me courage, give me courage

I walk these city streets see the people there
Look into the eyes of quiet despair
And the faces tell a story that words never can
And it falls to everyone of us to try and understand
Out of kindness
One act of grace makes the world we walk a better place

Hope is an open window
Love an open door
To reach out for each other
Is what we came here for

Through an open window
We can see the way
If we hold on to each other, every day

We build walls of suspicion with bars of fears
Tell ourselves we’ll be safe in here
I know more brings us together
Than keeps up apart
First we got to tear down these walls within our hearts

We might be strangers, we can be friends
You and I we both need to let somebody in

Hope is an open window
Love an open door
To reach out for each other
Is what we came here for

Through an open window
We can see the way
If we hold on to each other, every day

Give me courage so I can spread over my face and mouth
We are secret rivers with shaking hips and crests
Come awake in our thunder so that our eyes can see behind trees
Give me courage so I can spread over my face and mouth
Give me courage, give me courage
Give me courage, give me courage

Hope is an open window
Love’s an open door
To reach out for each other
Is what we came here for

Through an open window
We can see the way
If we hold on to each other, every day

Hope is an open window
Love an open door
Gotta be there for each other
Is what we sent here for

Through an open window
We can find a way
To love one another

Hope is an open window
Love an open door.
