Today I had a recording session and finished one of the first songs I had ever written. It is called “Open your Eyes”, and I actually already had the basic idea for it in 2003. But it was one of the songs I had on the back of my mind whenever I was songwriting for years and years and years…and even though I had completed lyrics and melody of the verses in 2005, it took me another 6 years until I finally had the one fitting idea for the chorus. Originally a song in 6/8 beat, I changed it to 5/8 in 2012. Et voilà – it is finally finished!
I post this song here because I think it fits into the topics of this blog fairly well. It is about the importance to stop thinking about problems and start seeing the world the way children do: as a huge mystery, full of adventure and beauty.
I hope you enjoy listening to it! 🙂
