[open Your Eyes] (Song Lyrics)

Poem by Seth Morrow

She looked up the other night deep in the sky,
to see her life before her, and ask the question why.
Why has nobody come and swept her away.
No night before her, no peasant in the hay.

Her life’s been ragged striped to the bone.
Somewhat edge jagged, trapped all alone.
Let it be known.
You’re not alone.

Because there’s someone there before you
with arms way up high.
Someone there before you, the love of your life.
Open your eyes and realize. He’s just waiting,
just waiting to be recognized.

So men have come and gone, no one to long.
Some men mistreat her, strung her along.
Others they weren’t there when she needed love.
Now then she wonders, should she just give up.
Enough’s enough.
It just seems to much.


Now she’s come of age again. A long year gone bye
Friends all seem to disappear, going on with there lives.
Suddenly it happens, when she looks into his eyes.
All the life long passion right there in her sight,
there the whole time. If she’d just opened her eyes
and then she cries.


Now theirs someone for her, the love of her life.
Someone there to hold her, deep into the night.
Waited so long for love to tread her right.
Should have been sooner. Love is there
Just open your eyes.
