Open your mind, surely it's plain to see



Timeslip moment again...

Amazingly (and scarily) it is fifteen years this week since one of my all-time favourite songs, You're Not Alone by Olive (whatever happened to them?) was at Number 1 in our charts!

This song helped me through some very sad and confusing times indeed, and I thank them for that...



In a way it's all a matter of time
I will not worry for you – you will be just fine
Take my thoughts with you, and when you look behind
You will surely see a face that you recognize, yeah yeah

You're not alone, I'll wait till the end of time
Open your mind, surely it's plain to see
You're not alone, I'll wait till the end of time for you
Open your mind, surely it's time to be with me

It is the distance that makes life a little hard
Two minds that once were close; now so many miles apart
I will not falter though, I'll hold on till you're home, yeah yeah
Safely back where you belong, and see how our love has grown

You're not alone, I'll wait till the end of time
Open your mind, surely it's plain to see
You're not alone, I'll wait till the end of time for you
Open your mind, surely it's time to be with me

You're not alone, surely it's time to be with me
Open your mind, yeah

You're not alone – oh, I'll wait till the end of time for you
Open your mind – open your mind, yeah yeah
You're not alone – no, no


Sublime.

    1. It has always amazed me how certain songs can - out of the blue in most cases - perform a pivotal role at certain times of one's life. Like this lot... Jx
