about

Open Your Window was originally recorded in 1969 for the HARRY record. Personally, I think it is one of my dad's finest vocal performances. Trying to cover it pushed my ability to the absolute limit while still needing to transpose down a half step.

The Stuart Mossman acoustic guitar used on our recording was originally owned by David Carradine and is one of only 6 of its type in existence.

lyrics

Open your window and take a deep sigh
Think about letting the rest of the world go fly a kite
Taking it easy, is easy as pie
And holding your hand is such a natural high

I sent flowers, we spent hours
We spent hours, I sent flowers

We could be happy alone in a tent
Think of the money we'd save on rent
Living is easy, as easy as pie
And holding your hand is such a natural high
