An Open Heart - Bright Light Bright Light



The Experience: British singer Rod Thomas (stage name Bright Light Bright Light) pulses a song about the 'real thing' of life and love, which can 'only come through an open heart'. This heartfelt electropop might light up your own heart.
Official Video: Rod Thomas waits in various parts of his apartment, with house objects half-appearing and then disappearing. Towards the end of the video, another version of himself is looking in through the window at Rod Thomas. The meaning of the video is how some things (in life, some possibilities - in the video, some objects) can only be seen or taken advantage of if you look at them with an open heart. There's two Rod Thomas' at the end: one who opened his heart and went outside, and one who's still locked inside. Guess which one's happier?

The meaning of An Open Heart is calling us out of ourselves. It could really hurt if you'd really love a lot. It could really hurt if you don't. Not-loving is risk-free, against the danger of trusting your heart to someone else. But if you lack the courage to give your heart away, and you lock your heart from anyone else... when you finally look back into your heart, you'll see it's shrunk and bitter. You have to give your heart to someone to keep it beating. 
You need to let yourself feel, / And make yourself believe in / All the love that comes to an open heart.

Ask yourself: Have I locked my heart away? Can I stop hiding in the dark?


LYRICS:
It could really hurt if you'd really love a lot
It could really hurt if you don't
Look across the water for miracles
But nothing can change if you won't!
Even the light has to break through the night to keep ups a life
No, no nothing comes to someone who's to afraid to fight

Couldn't you see?
You almost had a real thing?
How could it be?
You're still hiding in the dark?
Let yourself feel
And make yourself believing
All the love that comes to an open heart
You need to hold on to a good thing
You need to see and stop hiding in the dark
You need to let yourself feel
And make yourself believe in
All the love that comes to an open heart

We all have days when we're empty
We all have days when we cry
I look across the water for miracles
But things only change if we try
Even the days could be dark
If you stray far from what feels right
No, no comfort comes to someone
Who’s too proud to stand and fight

Couldn't you see?
You almost had a real thing?
How could it be?
You're still hiding in the dark?
Let yourself feel
And make yourself believing
All the love that comes to an open heart
You need to hold on to a good thing
You need to see and stop hiding in the dark
You need to let yourself feel
And make yourself believe in
All the love that comes to an open heart

Does it takes a heart to break through midnight?
Some things need time
Does it take a life to fall apart?
You need open up your eyes

Couldn't you see?
You almost had a real thing?
How could it be?
You're still hiding in the dark?
Let yourself feel
And make yourself believing
All the love that comes to an open heart
You need to hold on to a good thing
You need to see and stop hiding in the dark
You need to let yourself feel
And make yourself believe in
All the love that comes to an open heart

Couldn't you see?
You almost had a real thing?
How could it be?
You're still hiding in the dark?
Let yourself feel
And make yourself believing
All the love that comes to an open heart
You need to hold on to a good thing
You need to see and stop hiding in the dark
You need to let yourself feel
And make yourself believe in
All the love that comes to an open heart

Love that comes to an open heart
Let yourself feel
Love that comes to an open heart
Let yourself feel
Love that comes to an open heart
Let yourself feel
