Eyes Wide Open

John DeYoung & Bill Jones
Written by John DeYoung


I wrote this song for producer/director, John Stark for his film "Sons Of Freedom", but it turned out to ironically reflect my life changes as I had just moved to New Mexico from California. My old friend & music partner, Bill Jones, came out from Calif. and helped me record it in my Tijeras, N.M. studio. Bill played one of the acoustic guitars and the keyboard part and came up with the key hook lines. Thanks Bill! It wouldn't be the same song without your influence.  All other parts by John DeYoung.


Eyes Wide Open

Board the Train Escape the war

This time have I gone too far

Is what's ahead what's behind

This time what will I find

Ride the rail, chase the stars

What can I lose after all

Don't know what's ahead

But I'm pretty sure I'll find out

Eyes wide open, feelers out
