Unlock the Lock
« on: October 17, 2013, 08:17:31 am »
I made a little video, my first ever, so don't expect too much, just pictures that go from one to the next with no transitions; but because people have been taking liberties, I decided to make my own!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9EoPIEvqNdU&feature=youtu.be

enjoy!

Lyrics as I hear them:

feel it come on like a sudden hope
bursting through all life's stone
it's beautiful as the sadness starts to quiet

leave the city for the desert sky
its like one big eye on you
____ it now and
the horses wanna run
and they run

you know what you should do
you choose not to know

keys hang lowaround your neck
i know what you know
unlock the lock
unlock the lock
unlock the lock


___ things, but it doesn't matter
like a pact you remembered once
something's coming in on you and it's pure
is it love?
you know what yous should do
you choose not to know
keys hang low  'round your neck
i know what you know

Unlock the lock (repeat)

feel it come on like a sudden
bursting through all life's stone
beautiful as the sadness starts to quiet
it is love
it is love


Edit:  this is my favorite of the new songs.  In the intro for it she said this song was the one song that led to the new album.  she said she was listening to bob dylan's radio show and it was all about keys and locks.

To me this song is about opening yourself up to love after having closed yourself off to the rest of the world, hence breaking through the stone.  Through heart aches or troubles with trust, people can build walls around them, so to me this is about that one love, that great love, that broke through all the stone built up.  No longer do we have to live with the sadness as the love replaces it.

Hope that cheered you up a bit, Vanessa clearly appreciates your video and best wishes which is nice :)

I think maybe that the end lyric is

Bursting through a stone wall,' but I'm not 100% sure

the "i know what you know" line makes me think about how one person in the relationship knows how real and lasting the relationship is before the other person does. 

it seems like what might have happened with her and John.  Or let me use them in my explanation at least.  They met, and John knew it was for real and for long term before she would admit it or let him in all the way.  so then she opened up and now she knows what he knew all along.  it also reminds me of my husband and i.  I kept pushing him away, and he stuck around and we have a great love.

Very interested in the song. Love the lyrics and the feel I get from it, but not crazy about the composition. I feel like it'll really be complemented by the processing on the final release. Piano alone isn't quite doing it for me. Really excited to hear the final piece though!!

i think it's "it's like one big eye on you" instead of "island you", and "you choose not to go" instead of "know".

i thought 'not to go" as well, but the second time she says it, it definitely sounds like know to me so i changed the first one too.   hopefully she will sing it again later and we can get some better audio!
i also like the meaning of choosing "not to know", rather than "go" as well.

i like that! it works because in the desert, when it's dark all the stars are so bright and you can see so many of them!
