"Open Book" as written by and Matthew James/donohoe Swinnerton....
You are not an open book
I can't do nothing 'bout that
But I'm worried, I'm overdrawn
What am I doing up at the witching hour?

Oh-o-oh-o
Oh-o-oh-o
Oh-o-oh-o
Oh-o-oh-o

Pick up a book, put down a book
Turn on the TV
It's 2 AM, there's nothing on
I just need something to focus on

Oh-o-oh-o
Oh-o-oh-o
Oh-o-oh-o
Oh-o-oh-o

Things are going to slide
Slide out of control
I hope that you come back
I can't eat, can't sleep
When I close my eyes
The thought of you denies
Me, the rest, and the air
That I need

The longer you are far from me
The more I drift away
I didn't see the warning signs
I was falling through the cracks

Oh-o-oh-o
Oh-o-oh-o
Oh-o-oh-o
Oh-o-oh-o

Oh-o-oh-o
Oh-o-oh-o
Oh-o-oh-o
Oh-o-oh-o

You are not
An open book
I am worn and torn
I am overdrawn

    General CommentYeh, i combine the two of those...

    The relationship has ended and he wants to fix it but he doesnt know how, he doenst understand her, she isnt an open book and he just wants her back. There were signs it was going wrong but he couldnt tell because he couldnt read her

    General CommentI think this is about how it's really hard to read how people are feeling today in this modern age!

    General CommentI think it's about a break up, because the girl in the relationship isn't being open and honest. Alan (the singer) is reflecting on it, and is becoming worried that she won't come back to him.
