lyrics

Open Your Eyes

Sun sinks slow behind the mountain,
As it always does.
I’ve been too busy coin counting,
To take the time to look up.
I heard a rustle from the tree,
“Hey you, yes, you, you should no better,
Let nothing that can be counted,
Become your measure.”

Open your eyes, Open your eyes.

These woods are full of stories,
Of death and rebirth.
The cracking of the winter branch,
Humming of the morning bird.
I threw my neck back,
Stared straight up to the sky.
I caught a shooting star winking at me,
From another time.

Open your eyes, Open your eyes,
To all that’s true and good,
Open your eyes, Open your eyes.


I looked in to the flame,
I thought of all my dear old friends,
I shared this space with them before,
We will share it again.
In the yellow, blue and red,
I saw an old woman, an old man,
In an old town square at sunset,
And they were holding hands,

Open your eyes, Open your eyes,
To all that’s true and good,
Open your eyes, Open your eyes.
