"Open Your Heart" as written by Michale Pickering and Paul Heard....
Days filled with joy and days filled with sorrow
I don't know just what to do
Am I happy today, am I lonely tomorrow
Everything depends on you

I've been waiting for the angels to knock on my door
I've been hopin' that everything could be like before

Open your heart and tell me what's wrong
Why can't you talk like you used to do before
I don't know if I'm weak, I don't know if I'm strong
Hey girl, I can't cope anymore

I've been waiting...

Open your heart, let me hear you
Make up your mind, I want to hear you call
Open your heart, want to come near you
Make up your mind, oh girl, before I fall

Maybe the sun will continue to shine
Maybe the rain will continue to fall
Maybe you want to leave me behind
Maybe you'll change and give me a call

    General CommentLyrics hit a spot there for me, listen to it when you've had a breakup and it never fails to get the tears rolling, I first heard this back in 1987 I think and it's stuck with me ever since

    General CommentThis is an amazing song, just expresses how one feels after losing someone so close to them.
    "Days filled with joy, days filled with sorrow. I don't know just what to do." He wants so desperately to give love to someone again, but can't find anyone "I've been waiting, for the angels to knock on my door", but he still feels something for his ex lover "I've been hoping, everything could be like before". He wants to love his former lover, and tells her to "open your heart...make up your mind" because he knows it will be too late if she waits.
    In the bridge, he states the truth that nobody can "fix" how he's feeling except her, when she gives him an answer on what she is going to do/how she feels about him.
