about

I think the title sums it up ... a sparse tune. Lots of air. Sometimes the room you write in influences the song's outcome. That's the case with this ditty. A beautiful summer morning, just enough traffic noise to keep city folk content, a green room with living trees, a patio with a future. Never knew I had a smirk until my next door neighbour pointed it out ... The glory days when the "Biltmore" was the home beacon.

lyrics

What shall I do today
Where shall I start
Spent all day yesterday
Nursing broken hearts

The sun is up - the sky is blue
The air is suckle sweet
With that little smirk of mine
I wander down your street ..

With my eyes wide open
And my arms wide open
Is your night wide open
‘Cause I’m wide open, yeah

I’m feeling like
I haven’t felt in years
There’s no dust up there
There’s no pain down here

The sun is up - the sky is blue
My calendar is bare
Tall drinks on the patio
I wander in the square ..

With my eyes wide open
And my arms wide open
Is your night wide open
‘Cause I’m wide open, yeah

The sun is up - the sky is blue
The air is suckle sweet
With that little smirk of mine
I wander down your street ..

With my eyes wide open
And my arms wide open
Is your night wide open
‘Cause I’m wide open -

With my eyes wide open
And my arms wide open
Is your night wide open
‘Cause I’m wide open - yeah

Wide open - I’m wide open -
Wide open
