Angel Olsen - The Sky Opened Up Lyrics




You've been on my mind
Guess it's about time
To see things just as they were
To see things just as they were

Left so much behind
The sky opened up and I climbed
To see things just as they are
To see things just as they are

And on my way back to the ground
I was appalled by what I had found

If you dare to be
True to what you believe
There's always somebody to lose
There's always somebody to lose

Even if you try
To pull all your feelings aside
There's always someone who will see
There's always someone who will see

And on my way back to the ground
I was surprised by what I had found

No one will ever be you for yourself
Even if the world is ready to help

If you give it some time
Out of the stranger you may find
Someone that hears what you mean
Someone that hears what you mean

These thoughts are easy to think
Easy to say
But when you're walking alone
Will you be okay?

Left so much behind
The sky opened up and I climbed
To see things just as they are
To see things just as they are

And on my way back to the ground
I was appalled by what I had found
No one will ever be you for yourself
No one will ever be you for yourself

    You've been on my mind
    Guess it's about time
    To see things just as they were
    To see things just as they were

    Left so much behind
    The sky opened up and I climbed
    To see things just as they are
    To see things just as they are

    And on my way back to the ground
    I was appalled by what I had found

    If you dare to be
    True to what you believe
    There's always somebody to lose
    There's always somebody to lose

    Even if you try
    To pull all your feelings aside
    There's always someone who will see
    There's always someone who will see

    And on my way back to the ground
    I was surprised by what I had found
    No one will ever be you for yourself
    Even if the world is ready to help

    If you give it some time
    Out of the stranger you may find
    Someone that hears what you mean
    Someone that hears what you mean

    These thoughts are easy to think
    Easy to say
    But when you're walking alone
    Will you be okay?

    Left so much behind
    The sky opened up and I climbed
    To see things just as they are
    To see things just as they are

    And on my way back to the ground
    I was appalled by what I had found
    No one will ever be you for yourself
    No one will ever be you for yourself

  5. Caitlin Hamilton

    mesmerizing and haunting. love it

  6. CPDSMD

    Love it. Kind of earthy and poignant.  Lots of thought involved.  Music has lost a lot of thought, somehow?

  7. Irving Figueroa

    Reminds me a lot of Grace Slick and Jefferson Airplane with a touch of Leonard Cohen.

    Steven Stgermain

    Irving Figueroa wow.. I was saying the same thing as I watched JA white rabit and wow..again hit it on the head!..

  8. futurespells

    Good shit

  9. Hiro Protagonist

    She reminds me of a female Roy Orbison! Haunting, dry vocals that *almost* sound flat at times... slow, measured, dripping with emotion.

    Camden Nicole

    she reminds me of roy orbison, too!!! no one gets that comparison when i make it.

  10. Hiro Protagonist

    Simply brilliant!
