Sara Groves is one of my favorite song writers, her song Eyes Wide Open is a good way to describe how I’m still trying to learn from my successes and my mistakes; my foibles, failures, fame and f… well, you get my point.

Again, my goal is that mysilentscream is a place to learn how to make living life easier.  I focus on practical suggestions that help relationships thrive.  I provide real life examples that help you feel less alone while struggling through life.

Sara Groves’ Eyes Wide Open

I’ve got layers of lies that I don’t even know about yet
bathroom doors turned billboards
no place left untouched without the mumblin
tell me what I need, tell me what I want
worship the things that we’ve made with our own hands

in so deep I don’t even know it, I don’t even know it
rubbing these sticks till the air is thick
no spark no heart no inspiration
tell me what I need, tell me what I want
worship the things that we made
with our own hands

oh I’m gonna find the truth
even if it kills me
oh I gotta get a new view
the only way I know to
oh I gotta keep my eyes wide open
keep my eyes wide open

diggin in the dirt till it hurts
won’t come up for air don’t care
how long it takes me
I get tired want to just get by can’t I get by
but I can’t cuz there’s a
fire in my bones, fire in my bones
burnin in my bones

when the lights come up on this town
when the thing goes down wanna be found
when the lights come up on this
when the lights come up on this town
when the thing goes down
wanna be found tryin
when the lights come up
wanna be telling the truth

  3. […] In the past I mentioned my appreciation for singer-songwriter Sara Groves.  This week Amy and I are going to her CD release concert so I’m highlighting some of her great songs.  They inspire and encourage me.  I think that they will do the same for you. […]
