Bareilles, Sara - Opening Up Lyrics




The day starts like the rest I've seen
Another carbon copy of where I've already been.
Days keep coming one out, one in, they keep coming.

I don't know what I wish I had,
But there's no time now,
For thinking things like that.
I've got too much to do, too much to do
We've got too much to do, too much to do.

Opening up, letting the day in.
Pour you a cup and say, "Hello, how ya been?"
Looking around, seeing the same things.
It's comforting how some things never change,
Never change, never change, do they?

I wouldn't call this place a "happy end",
But I've been 'round the block and just came back again.
Could be worse, so make it work, no place is perfect.

Hey, I'm no good in the outside world,
Because I feel too much and find it usually hurts.
I like the way most of the days
Look exactly the same.

Opening up, every day starts
Over a cup served with "Hello, how ya been?"
Welcoming in,
Whatever the day brings
More of the same things.

Check the clock, tick, tick, tock
Don't stop, serve with a smile,
Hurry up, fill the coffee cup,
And then in a while,
Take a breath when you need to be reminded
That with days like these we can only do the best we can.
And do it all again.

It's the heartbeat, the center, the lifeline, you enter.
It's the heartbeat, it's the center, the lifeline, you enter.
It's the heartbeat, the center, the lifeline, you enter.

Opening up, letting the day in.
Pour you a cup and say, "Hello, how ya been?"
Looking around, seeing the same things.
It's comforting how some things never change,
Never change, never change and never change.

Bareilles, Sara Opening Up Comments
  1. kim

    Since I’ve been obsessed with Waitress for the longest time, there’s something refreshing of the slight alternative of the songs I already knew

  2. • M I L A •

    I’m 14 yo and i feel very lucky to know this amazing musical and this awesome woman who wrote this songs, i don’t know someone who loves Waitress and have my age, but i’m really happy to know Sara

    Lyrics:

    The day starts like the rest I've seen
    And all the carbon copy of where I've already been
    Days keep coming one on one, and they keep coming
    Don't know what I wish I had
    But there's no time now
    For thinking things like that
    I've got too much to do (too much to do)
    We've got too much to do, too much to do
    Opening up, letting the day in
    Pour you a cup and say, "Hello, how ya been?"
    Looking around, seeing the same things
    It's comforting how some things never change
    Never change, never change, do they?
    I wouldn't call this place a happy end
    But I've been 'round the block and just came back again
    Could be worse, so make it work, no place is perfect
    Hey, no good in the outside world
    Because I feel too much and find it usually hurts
    I like the way most of the days look exactly the same
    Opening up, everyday starts
    Over a cup, served with, "Hello, how ya been?"
    Welcoming in, whatever the day brings
    More of the same things
    Check the clock, tick, tick, tock
    Don't stop, serve with a smile, hurry up
    Fill the coffee cup, and then in a while

    That days like these, we can only do the best we can
    And do it all again
    It's the heartbeat, the center, the lifeline, you enter
    Opening up, letting the day in
    Pour you a cup and say, "Hello, how ya been?"
    Looking around, seeing the same things
    It's comforting how some things never change
    Never change, never change and never change

    вaвy loveѕ

    casserolenannerhead it's familiar n it seems like it could've been, but i'm not sure

  5. Tamanna Das

    This is so much catchier than the Broadway version, but I love the harmonies on that one. Basically I'm just so glad and grateful that Sara gave us multiple versions of the same songs to enjoy ♥️

  23. OnceUponAPiano

    I get so proud that she's a Portuguese-American singer-songwriter like me ❤️ if she ever wanted to, she'd be really good at singing fados

    imbrunok

    OnceUponAPiano what do you mean "portuguese American"? Didnt knoe she had portuguese background...

    ESC KeS

  38. เบน ปัพพานนท์

    my happy heartbreak song ^ ^

  39. Marina

    Apart from all those "COME TO BRAZIL" comments... I'd really like to know when she is coming to our country. She should probably come to Lollapalooza or something like that. I know the festival is alternative, but still... It would be a good fit for her old songs.

  40. Irfandyari Masya Kusumanegara

    Her voice and her piano always make the songs sound great!

  41. Rex Craigo

    Can't wait to see this on Broadway. April 22!!!!

  42. sandra paredes

    I wish you were here sara and both sing brave, I dont brave anymore.

  43. Maria Basantes

    me siento identificada con casi todas las canciones :o jajajajaj EXCELENTE!

  44. Ana Arriaga

    I'm feel super lucky to know about Sara Bareilles because so many people my age (16) have no idea who she is or "don't listen to that type of music" but this is pure talent not like the junk other people hear. She's underrated and I think everyone should know who she is!!! I want to see her live!

    A J

    Johanna A. Florez I was saying Vanessa Carlton was a one hit wonder not Sara but I 100% agree with you!

    Eamon Hyatt

    Not everyone listens to "junk." What can be considered "junk" in the music industry? Most or all of the musicians/bands people listen to have put endless hours into writing, recording, producing, and performing their music. All of it deserves support. Musicians in general are hardworking people who devote themselves to their fans, regardless of how many people judge their music negatively.

    Super Solver

    I'm grateful to know about her and Jon Mclaughlin.

    TRU Dat

    Glad to see someone under 30 is thinking for themselves.

    Madelyn Rothstein
