  1. Tarryl Says:

    I wonder what the new verse is that YK composed for the live performance of this song. It actually sounds like the “Christe Eleison” verse from Salva Nos fiction ver. I dont think that’s it, though, but i really wonder what it is

  2. Antonio Says:

    You are right Tarryl, they sing in the live performances “Kyrie Eleison, Hosanna Amen; O Christe Eleison…” in some parts of this song “Open your Heart”. Later when they sing the second time they say “Kyrie Eleison, Hosanna in Excelsis; O Christe Eleison…” If this song was good by its lyrics by itself, with this prayer, it got better.

  3. aki aki Says:

    O Christe Eleison = O Christ, have mercy

    Kyrie Eleison,
    Hosanna in Excelsis

    O Lord, have mercy,
    Hosanna in the highest (literally in high places)

  4. Tarryl / TRal55 Says:

    Antonio — I’m just now coming back to this page 4 years later and seeing your response after once again wondering the same thing about the background lyrics to this song and finally seeing your answer. HA! Thanks for the response, i LOVE that she put that Latin into it, it’s very beautiful

  5. Tarryl / TRal55 Says:

    One more question:

    If you cut to the Kaji Fest Live version of this song (from the Best of FJ 2010-2013) and listen to REMI (i believe?) sing the Latin part starting at 03:21 there is one more word sung after the final line:

    “O Christe Eleison ____” sounds like “Matelo?” Any ideas?

    Aerterna…
    I think.
