Bareilles, Sara - Eyes On You Lyrics




Tendi with the good hands stutters when she's speaking
Johnny drives a big rig, Johnny's not sleeping
Sweet Geraldine turned 80 in the spring
But her nerves won't quit she worries about everything

Sarah's on a work trip crying at her hotel
Jessie's doing back flips, Molly's doing so well
Joey's got a new girl, Emily moved away
And the world's on fire the whole time we're trying to put out the flame

Life it gets louder now
Can't stop it
Won't slow down
Lost in this
All I can do
Is keep my eyes on you

I know the world turns around
I know the lights are gonna go out
But until they do I've got nothing to lose
I keep my eyes on you
I keep my eyes on you

Tommy took a free fall, didn't pull the rip-chord
Gathered at the funeral, everybody looked bored
Amanda had a baby, Katie she lost a few
And when the smoke gets thick I can't help it
I hear tick-tick boom

Life it gets louder now
Can't stop it
Won't slow down
Lost in this
All I can do
Is keep my eyes on you

I know the world turns around
I know the lights are gonna go out
But until they do I've got nothing to lose
I keep my eyes on you

I keep my eyes on the horizon...

I know the world turns around
I know the lights are gonna go out
But until they do I've got nothing to lose
I've got nothing to lose
I keep my eyes on you
I keep my eyes on you
I keep my eyes on you
I keep my eyes on you

  5. Carlos Manso Pérez

    I discovered this great song flying from Vietnam. I never forget this summer. Thanks Sara.

  6. Moira Larkin

    This could be the theme song to a sitcom.

  7. Sarah Wagner

    I feel like you spoke my truth... I know that there are so many of us Sara(h)'s and multiple work trips with crying involved, but I feel me in this song. I was in a very dark place, due to someone else's ideas for me, but I am happily free now. And I've been living the single life since. "Fire" is another one on this album that kinda screams at me. I'm feeling the cold, I damn near shiver, but I know I deserve the fire.
    Thank you So much for being you ❤️😎👊

    There are so many worrying, confusing, and outright terrifying things happening in the world. It's so easy to feel worn down just sitting at home hearing about everything that's going wrong... It's hard to know how much attention you can put into that without losing yourself. No--it's that I'm lost in the first place, and the surrounding chaos only contributes to my feelings of being overwhelmed, disoriented, and miserable. I've been feeling it particularly since yesterday but a few minutes ago, I remembered this song and came to listen to it. I have to find a way to focus and get myself together. I'm no use to the world like this, and if I wanna put out that fire, for now, I gotta keep my eyes on what's right in front of me and start walking upon the path I'm meant to.

    Woah something I never knew I needed. Eden is my synthpop track I adore. Now Eyes on You is my full on rock track from Sara I love. We need more artists experimenting.

    Tandy with the good hand, stutters when she's speaking
    Johnny drives a big rig, Johnny's not sleeping
    Sweet Geraldine turned 80 in the spring
    But her nerves won't quit, she worries about everything
    Sara's on a work trip crying at a hotel
    Jessie's doing backflips, Molly's doing so well
    Joey's got a new girl, Emily moved away
    And the world's on fire
    The whole time we're trying to put out the flame

    Life, it gets louder now
    Can't stop it, won't slow down
    Lost in this, all I can do
    Is keep my eyes on you

    I know the world turns around
    I know the lights are gonna go out
    But until they do, I've got nothing to lose
    I keep my eyes on you, I
    I keep my eyes oh you

    Tommy took a freefall, didn't pull the ripcord
    Gathered at the funeral, everybody looked bored
    Amanda had a baby, Katie, she lost a few
    And when the smoke gets thick
    I can't help it but hear tick, tick, boom

    Life, it gets louder now
    Can't stop it, won't slow down
    Lost in this, all I can do
    Is keep my eyes on you

    I know the world turns around
    I know the light's gonna go out
    But until they do, I've got nothing to lose
    I keep my eyes on you

    I keep my eyes on the horizon

    I know the world turns around
    I know the lights are gonna go out
    But until they do, I've got nothing to lose
    I've got nothing to lose
    I keep my eyes on you

  26. Joana Freitas
