    "What The Open Heart Allows" | the story
    written, performed, and produced by Brad Peterson
    On “What the Open Heart Allows”, Peterson says:
    "This song was written and recorded in 2 days. The images had come to me in a dream (as is with many of my songs). In was variation of my recurring celestial dreams, it had a very Jean-Pierre Jeunet cinematic look and storyline to it. It was a pleasant and enjoyable dream in which 'openness' tended to be the sublime theme and emotion. There were one or two people I passed while walking. I never saw their faces and wasn’t concerned or threatened by their shadowy figures as I climbed to the top of a bluff where I saw other characters in the distance who involved with some sort of festival.The twinkling lights looked like an abstract mirror of the stars above. Like the others [of this series of dreams], I had the power to magnify what I saw in a night-time sky. The colors were vivid blues and yellows. Time and scale seemed to fluctuate.

    After I woke up, it was still fairly dark. I made coffee I went out to the garden shed to sketch out the lyrics, chords and melody with my acoustic guitar and a notebook. It was mostly done within a few hours -after I tracked guitar, bass, drums, piano, and all the vocals, later that same day. On day two, I had been experimenting in my lab with various circuits and processes with my electric guitar for a lark. The opening sort-of sci-fi sound is actually my electric guitar feeding back; I chopped it up and altered the speed and oscillations for the effect. I added banjo and mixed the final version in about another hour."

    Abounding constellations shown
    Luminous we’re not alone
    Traverse a path when the night is dim
    We wouldn’t sleep in the state we’re in
    Tried and took a fall
    Tired and emotional
    We don’t know which way is up
    What may be will be
    With our friends and enemies
    Take from us this immense cup
    Somewhere further down the stream someone from a dream
    Nothing as it seems
    Hark ye come forth here and now
    All we dare avow
    What the open heart allows
    Full stop turn it around
    Is what the open heart allows
    Somewhere further down the stream someone from a dream
    Nothing as it seems
    Hark ye come forth here and now
    Abounding constellations shown

    Nothing as it seems
    Hark ye come forth here and now

    What the open heart allows
    Oh
    What the open heart allows
    Oh
    What the open heart allows Show less
