wrote this recently with my dear friend Steve Noonan (Buy For Me The Rain) when he was visiting Nashville, and it prompted me to build my home recording studio

lyrics

Breaking Open © Steve Noonan, Julie Christensen
G D
All this progress goin’ around
G D
Tearin’ down the stuff that’s real
G A
Bulldoze all that hallowed ground
G D
There’s no love in stainless steel

G D
All this madness payin’ dues
G D
Can’t find my ease or let it be
G A
And the sadness, I can’t use
G D
‘Less I let it set me free

A G
Close a heart, close a mind
A G
Sacrifice of a different kind
B C
Been through every shape of hell
Em A //
Share with me your finest self
D
Got no time for broken dreams

F G
If you slow it down and tune it in
Bb
To the rhythm of the world
A C A C
You can hear the sound of One heart breaking open, breaking open
D
Breaking Open

G D
The only way to learn
G D
Is falling down and taking chances
G A
Turn your light on, let it burn
G D
Be the master of the dances

A G
Close a heart, close a mind
A G
Sacrifice of a different kind
B C
Been through every shape of hell
Em A //
Share with me your finest self
D G
Got no time for broken dreams
D G
Got no time for broken dreams
D G
Breaking Open
D G
Breaking Open
