Love Like Laughter - Beth Orton

Some of the worst songs get righted on three chords
Can't write it on three chords
Like a promise
Or a kiss goodbye
When the sneer on your lips
Is the loveliest thing
Just alive enough to die

Open my heart
I opened my heart
There's something telling me
To open my heart.
Open my heart,
See I've been blind,
And all that's been cut
Is a short loop running round my mind.

Love is like laughter
See it happen by chance,
Like a promise,
Be a kiss goodbye
When the smile on your lips
Is the livest thing
More alive than any sky I've seen.

Open my heart
I opened my heart
There's something telling me
To open my heart.
Open my heart,
See I've been blind,
And all that's been cut
Is a short loop running round my mind.

Open my heart
I opened my heart
There's something telling me
To open my heart.
Open my heart,
See I've been blind,
And all that's been cut
Is a short loop running round my mind.

It's just running round my mind,
Running all the time.
It's a short loop.
