Eyes of the World (Main Song Page)
Eyes of the World
main lyrics
Right outside this lazy summer home
ain't got time to call your soul a critic, no
right outside the lazy gate of winter's summer home
wondering where the nut-thatch winters, wings a mile long
just carried the bird away

[CHORUS]
Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world
and the heart has its beaches, its homeland, and thoughts of its own
wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings
but the heart has its seasons, its evenings, and songs of its own


There comes a redeemer, and he slowly, too, fades away
and there follows a wagon behind him that's loaded with clay
and the seeds that were silent all burst into bloom and decay
and night comes so quiet, it's close on the heels of the day

[CHORUS]

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own
and sometimes we visit your country and live in your home
sometimes we ride on your horses, sometimes we walk alone
sometimes the songs that we hear are just songs of our own

[CHORUS]
