OPAL SOUL LYRICS


2. Sign of Life

Looking for a sign, Looking for a sign of life.

Looking for a way, Looking for my way out.

Looking for a sign, Looking for a sign of life.

Looking for a place, Where my roots can sprout.


Looking for a sign, Looking for a riverside.

Looking for a place Where my brain can sprout.

Looking for a sign, Looking for a sign of life.

Looking for my train Looking for my train of thought.


I know where to go, Where there is no solid ground.

I know where to go, Where the earth is wet and fertile.

If I stay there I’ll grow, If I stay there I’ll know.

3. Hushed Tones

Talking like you don’t like me, It’s a different world.

Talking like you don’t like me, I’m a different girl.

Talking like you don’t know me, I’ve got these concerns.

Talking like you don’t know me, We’re both getting burned.


Am I sensitive anymore? Am I sensitive anymore?


Waiting for life to find me, After a storm.

Waiting for life to find me, When I can’t conform.

Waiting for your love to find me, It’s a different world.

Waiting for your love to find me, I’m a different girl.


Am I sensitive anymore? Can we handle what we have in store?

Oh am I meant for you anymore?


4. Cloud

I do the best that I can I know I’m a delicate friend,

But I don’t like it when I feel like things are staying the same.

And I’m trying to perfect my thoughts, Trying to get my life to the top

And I’m getting the feeling that things are going to change.


It’s been a good run and we felt it out,

All of the love and art that we create.

It’s been a good taste but I’m full now.

I think it’s best if we just have some space.


oh, if I’d open up my heart

If I could go back to the place where we first made our sweet love

Then I’d open up my heart.


We’re somewhere up in this sky Watching our lives float on by,

But I don’t know if I want to watch it all today.

So I’m going farther inside looking for what ground I can find,

Whenever you’re near me now I’m feeling farther away.


It’s been a good run and we felt it out,

All of the love and art that we create.

It’s been a good taste but I’m full now.

I think it’s best if we just have some space.


oh, if I’d open up my heart

If I could go back to the source,

Find the love that we’re made of,

Then I’d open up my heart.


Cause living, living on this cloud

Don’t get any better, Don’t get any better

And I love you, yeah I love you so,

Gonna love you better, Gonna love you better.


5. Clarity

Cutting towards this water’s edge, I’ve tried

Making some amends in my life.

But I’m not ready yet, to leave my boat at shore

You can’t choose your family,

But you don’t have to speak to them anymore.


Oooh ends meet, oooh ancestry

Oooh ends meet, oooh ancestry


And I’ll see what I need, Only when it’s right in front of me.

In the eye of this flame, Of this life that I’ve made.

“When you’re ready to die for what you love in this life, that’s your means to survive, be alive and to thrive.”


Living in this future time, I see

An endless loop of gray fog from my lighthouse of clarity.

There are these pieces that are lost far behind me,

Entire years blocked out of my memory.


Oooh ancestry, oooh therapy

Oooh ancestry, oooh therapy


And I’ll see what I need, Only when it’s right in front of me.

In the eye of this flame, Of this life that I’ve made.

“When you’re ready to die for what you love in this life, that’s your means to survive, be alive and to thrive.”


Oooh ancestry, oooh clarity

Oooh ancestry, oooh clarity

Oooh ancestry, oooh clarity

Oooh ancestry, oooh clarity.


6. Who You Are

You have my love in cast and mold.

Origami left to unfold.

The world is bending us so far,

But I’ll always see you For who you are.


Who you are, Who you are


BECause we’re closer to the end Than from the start.

In the middle’s where you’ll find out Who you are


The rules are shifting, You’re not the same.

Keep changing faces, Like every day.

Emotions move in course with the stars

But I’ll always see you For who you are.


Who you are, Who you are

Who you are, Who you are


Cause we’re closer to the end Than from the start.

In the middle’s where you’ll find out Who you are


7. Climbing

Climbing this mountain Of what we know to be true.

We can’t change How we’re treated in our youth.

I find myself In this troubling hazE,

Buried in the patterns That helped me cope in past days.


Have you seen the world around us lately?

I don’t know.


Believe in something Or in nothing at all.

I’m aiming to climb high ‘Til I’m aiming to fall.

These rocks are jagged Towards the edge of my trail

As long as I keep climbing, It’s not likely I’ll fail.


Have you seen the world around us lately?

I don’t know.


8. Y La Luna

You know that you know That you know that you know

That you’re leaving

Know that you know That you know that you know

You’re not breathing

Know that you know That you know that you know

You’re not sleeping

Know that you know That you know that you know

You’re not dreaming

Know that you know That you know that you know

You’re not sleeping

Know that you know That you know that you know

You’re not dreaming


Volveramos alla

Cuano la luna encuentra al sol

Y no olvidamos ya

Que las estrellas tiene razon

Volveramos alla

In the sun, in the sun, in the sun, in the sun,

Y la luna, y la luna y la luna y la luna.


(trans.)

We will go back there
When the moon meets the sun
And we DO not forget
That the stars HAVE MEANING
We will go back there
In the sun, in the sun, in the sun, in the sun,
And the moon, and the moon and the moon and the moon.


9. Fruit and Fire

You with the gift of a curious mind, Will you follow me?

You with the wish to be made alive, Will you follow me?

I’ve found my way.


You who keep watch for the sign of the times, You're the remedy.

You who keep cool at a quarter to five, You're a rarity,

But you've found your way.


We’re getting close to the edge of the lines Living irony.

You have the fruit and the fire inside, But speak quietly

When you're talking to me.

Keep ourselves caught in the eye of the wire, our hypocrisy,

Clouds the full shape of the moon in the sky, are we destined to be

Trapped in or set free?
