Taylor Swift - Eyes Open lyrics

Country-pop star Taylor Swift hits her standard mark of perfection yet again with "Eyes Open", the second track she composed for 'The Hunger Games' film soundtrack, available for purchase on March 20, 2012 - "Eyes Open" lasts 4:04 minutes, and is the #14 track on the disc. It's amazing! And I'm liking the fact it's different in style to "Safe and Sound". Although "Eyes Open" still features Taylor singing in her vulnerable vocals, it carries a more rock/pop instrumentation and overall it kind of resembles to a typical Taylor Swift tune she could've recorded for any of her previous album. Truly a masterpiece!


Eyes Open lyrics

[Taylor Swift]
Everybody's waiting
Everybody's watching
Even when you're sleeping
Keep your ey-eyes open

A tricky thing
As yesterday we were just children
Playing soldiers
Just pretending
Dreaming dreams with happy endings
In backyards, winning battles with our wooden swords
But now we've stepped into a cruel world
Where everybody stands to keep score

Keep your eyes open

Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Even when you're sleeping, sleeping
Keep your eyes open
Keep your eyes open
Keep your eyes open

So here you are, two steps ahead and staying on guard
Every lesson forms a new scar
They never thought you'd make it this far
But turn around, they've surrounded you
It's a showdown, and nobody comes to save you now
But you've got something they don't
Yeah you've got something they don't
You've just gotta keep your eyes open

Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Even when you're sleeping, sleeping
Keep your eyes open
Keep your eyes open
Keep your eyes open

Keep your feet ready
Heartbeat steady
Keep your eyes open
Keep your aim locked
The night goes dark
Keep your eyes open

Everybody's waiting for you to breakdown
Everybody's watching to see the fallout
Even when you're sleeping, sleeping

Keep your eyes open
Keep your eyes open
Keep your eyes open
Keep your eyes open
