Keep Your Eyes Open

Religion warns us not to stray from what it has taught, but God has given us freedom. He has given us freedom to explore our spirituality. He has given us freedom to question our preconceived notions. He has given us freedom to explore the pigpen. We’re reminded of this freedom when we listen to this song from Needtobreathe. God says, “You know I’ll never let you fall apart. Keep your eyes open, my love.” Lyrics below.

If you could soldier on, headstrong into the storm
I’ll be here waiting on the other side;
Don’t look back, the road is long; the first days of the war are gone
Take back your former throne and turn the tide

‘Cause if you never leave home, never let go
You’ll never make it to the great unknown
Till you keep your eyes… open, my love

So tell me you’re strong, tell me you see
I need to hear it, can you promise me
To keep your eyes… open, my love

Just past the circumstance: the first light, a second chance
No child could ever dance the way you do, oh
Tear down the prison walls, don’t stop the curtain calls
Your chains will never fall until you do

‘Cause if you never leave home, never let go
You’ll never make it to the great unknown
Till you keep your eyes… open, my love

So show me your fire, show me your heart
You know I’ll never let you fall apart
If you keep your eyes… open, my love

Ohhh open up
Ohhh open up
Ohhh open up your eyes, the way is unbroken

Ohhh open up
Ohhh open up
Ohhh open up your eyes (keep your eyes open)

Don’t let the night become the day
Don’t take the darkness to the grave
I know pain is just a place
The will has been broken

Don’t let the fear become the hate
Don’t take the sadness to the grave
I know the fight is on the way
When the sides have been chosen

‘Cause if you never leave home, never let go
You’ll never make it to the great unknown
Open up your eyes, keep your eyes open

So show me your fire, show me your heart
You know I’ll never let you fall apart
If you keep your eyes… open, my love
Keep your eyes… (keep your eyes open)
