Lift the latch, there’s no more halting now
Now you know my heart, so take my hand, let’s start out walking

With the sweet taste of waking, your smile on my lips
The sun winks and slips her way on tiptoes
Tossing her dancing light through the leaves at your window
We throw off the blankets and night tucks her sand in the pockets of her moon robes
Vanishing into the brightness

Open the gate love, pull me spinning into the arms of a new day
Open the gate, mmm. . . gimme some laughter, You’re making up the way

Secret door, we crawl down through the floor,
the tunnel twists — there are roots in the ceiling, and frogs on the rocks
They point the direction, because they can’t talk
We’re believing in symbols, forgetting the clocks
Our feet quick and nimble, dancing out of the box
The dark makes me tremble, but we’re giving off sparks
We stay safe as a thimble in our bright red socks

Oh my darling, my darling, I’ll give you Clementines and ripened rhymes for breakfast
I am yours and you are mine, I think we’d better duck fast
‘Cause the time flies buzz around our heads
Try to infect us with real life dread and deadlines
But I hope you’re listening this time
Open the gate love, I’ll pull you spinning into the arms of a new day
Open the gate, mmm . . . shining brightly, discovering the way

Over pebbles to the lake, the small waves breaking
The water is warm to our waists, to ease the aching
The day is kind and calm and waking
And you hold my hand here
