"Open Your Heart" as written by Michale Pickering and Paul Heard....
And when it hurts you know they love to tell you
How they warned you
They say "Don't be surprised at someone's lies"
They think they taunt you
But if you can stand the test
You know your worst is better than their best
And so you stand here with the years ahead
Potentially calling
With open heart or with a spirit dead
You walk on

Lies the reason
Faith or treason
Playing a part
End concealing
Try revealing
Open your heart

Dare to feel
Take the chance
Make the deal
Being an island
Shying from trying
Seems the easy way
Such an easy way
But there's no future without tears

Lies the reason
Faith or treason
Playing a part
End concealing
Try revealing
Open your heart

But if you can stand the test
You know your worst is better than their best

Lies the reason
Faith or treason
Playing a part
End concealing
Try revealing
Open your heart

Lies the reason
Faith or treason
Playing a part
End concealing
Try revealing
Open your heart

    General CommentCan't be arsed commenting much on what the lyrics mean, except that it's quite meaningful, based on the yearning for people changing, becoming better people in general and 'opening their hearts.' Great, catchy song from a damn fine band. Can't understand why there aren't many comments on The Human League's lyrics on these pages. Oh well.

    General CommentAgreed. The song is about the joy of opening up, and how we should really be unafraid to do so. This song always makes me smile. :)
