My Eyes

I woke up before dawn on New Year’s Day and ran down the beach in the dark so I could be the first one to surf my favorite break. Half way down the beach I realized I had my eyes open as wide as they’d go just to see where I was going. By the time I reached the surf spot, the song was half written.


I can hear the first bird chirping
The sun’s about to rise up over the lake
I’m counting sheep but it’s not working
It’s not working and I’m wide awake, I’m wide awake

My eyes, my eyes, my eyes are wide open
My eyes, they’re open just as wide as they go
My eyes, my eyes, my eyes are wide open
I want to see everything that this world’s got to show
I want to see everything this great big world’s got to show

The sun is shining, it’s all so stunning
The whole world’s out there waiting for me
I fly down the stairs and I hit the ground running
I hit the ground running ‘cause there’s so much to see, so much to see

I want to see a blue whale splashing
I want to see white snowflakes fall
I want to see a red fox dashing
I keep my eyes open so I see them all, I see them all

The house is quiet, I can hear my heart beating
That big yellow sun has long since set
I know darn well I should be sleeping
I should be sleeping but it hasn’t happened yet, hasn’t happened yet
