Lyrics: It Opens by Craig Bickhardt

The January Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity feature a stream of It Opens by Craig Bickhardt. Here are the lyrics.

Make ’em laugh when you wanna cry

Spread your wings when it’s time to fly

Call the tune when your heart says dance

Take it, babe, when you see a chance

It don’t look like a door

It don’t look like a door

But it opens, it opens

It don’t look like a door

It don’t look like a door

But it opens

Opportunity rides the breeze

There ain’t no locks and there ain’t no keys

The only thing life hinges on

Is a shoulder’s push and faith that’s strong

It don’t look like a door

It don’t look like a door

But it opens, it opens

It don’t look like a door

It don’t look like a door

But it opens

One latch closes when you’re young

Another’s waiting to get sprung

The threshold trips you and you stumble through

And your future says, “How do you do”

It don’t look like a door

It don’t look like a door

But it opens, it opens

It don’t look like a door

It don’t look like a door

But it opens
