John, Elton - The Open Chord Lyrics




You gotta think about it
You gotta make a wish and count to ten
There's just a sense of wonder
I feel a new direction looking down the lens
Jump started the action
Heard a song in my head and wrote it down
It came out of nowhere
Felt a new sensation driving you through town

You're an open chord I wanna play all day
A new broom sweeping up the sins I no longer play
Cleaning out the corners
Clipping out the horrors
That the Devil used to make me wear all day
You're an open chord I'm gonna play all day

You're gonna see some changes
Gotta pinch myself just to believe
Everybody's having something
But I can tell you've got some magic up your sleeve
Some deep protection
When a feeling follows you around
I always need the silence
Or the lightning you bring like a new good sound

You're an open chord I wanna play all day
A new broom sweeping up the sins I no longer play
Cleaning out the corners
Clipping out the horrors
That the Devil used to make me wear all day
You're an open chord I'm gonna play all day

Sat around and waited for a spark
And it brightened up the night
Before I get much older
I want the pleasure of seeing you up in lights
I could then beside you
Hand over my heart and say a prayer
Love's not for quitters
It's a satisfaction
Knowing that you're there

You're an open chord I wanna play all day
A new broom sweeping up the sins I no longer play
Cleaning out the corners
Clipping out the horrors
That the Devil used to make me wear all day
You're an open chord I'm gonna play all day
Cleaning out the corners
Clipping out the horrors
That the Devil used to make me wear all day
You're an open chord I'm gonna play all day
You're an open chord I'm gonna play all day

    "A new broom sweeping up the scene's I no longer play. cleaning out the corners, clipping off the horns that the devil used to make me wear all day". This whole album is amazing, a really upbeat and positive vibe from every single track.
    Probably his best album ever. That comes from a man who has been a fan since I was 9 years old back in 1970.
    Thanks for the upload and the great video Rowan.

    an average Elton album, I think- consistently pretty good but short on truly great classics. Still, average Elton is of course much better than average overall

  15. The Naked Wombat

    Brilliant clear visual images matching another quality Elton song.

  16. Luiz Frank

    Toooo Much agreable. Love you Elton. Thanks to post it.

    Hey Filly. Let me guess. 'Someone Saved my Life Tonight' ...sugar bear? Elton rocks. Some people put him down but it seems everyone has a favourite of his because his music crosses so many styles from blues, rock of course, R&B, country, gospel etc 😊
