Music Monday: Alter Bridge – Open Your Eyes

This is a weekly meme I’ve picked up from Drew atย The Tattooed Book Geek. It’s very simple, you pick a song on a Monday and share it! Never one to turn away from the chance to share my exquisite taste in music I’m loving taking part in this every week, so thanks, Drew!

I’ve purposely saved Alter Bridge until today, I knew my birthday was on a Monday this year and I instantly knew Alter Bridge would have to be my pick for my birthday. Why? I hear you ask, well I share my birthday with Myles Kennedy the extremely talented lead singer of the band. So Happy Birthday Myles. Myles is exactly ten years older than me although I don’t think he looks it, probably the other way around! I’m lucky enough to have met him and the rest of the band, when I had to interview them for a magazine back in 2009 and to say it’s one of the most memorable moments of my life, is an understatement.

I honestly could have picked hundreds of songs for this, but I went with one of the songs I listen to all of the time. This is a band I absolutely adore, I’ve seen them live over ten times, I listen to them daily, they are a favourite and a lot of it has to do with Myles’ voice. I hope that you enjoy it!

Looking back I clearly see
What it is that’s killing me
Through the eyes I want to know
See a vision once let go
I had it all
Well constantly it burdens me
How to trust, I can’t believe
I lost the faith, I lost the love
But when the day is done
Will they open their eyes, and realize we are one
On and on we stand alone until our day is gone
Will they open their eyes, and realize we are one
I love the way I feel today
And how I know the sun will fade
Darker days seem to be
What will always live in me
But still I run
Its hard to walk this path alone
Hard to know which way to go
Will I ever save this day?
Will they ever change?
Will they open their eyes, and realize we are one
On and on we stand alone until our day is gone
Will they open their eyes, and realize we are one
Still today we carry on, I know our day will come
Will they open their eyes, and realize we are one
Will they open their eyes, and realize we are one
Hard to walk this path alone
Hard to know which way to go
Will they open their eyes, and realize we are one
Lost the faith, Lost the love
But when the day is done
Will they open their eyes, and realize we are one
