08. But Now My Eyes Are Open

The Answer To The Question
by Tree63



 

You opened up my ears to hear
The imperfections of my heroes
And those I held up to the sun
Are cracked and broken, every one
They spoke words of fire
They held my desire
But just because they look like you
Doesn’t mean they honour you no no

Chorus:
But now my eyes are open
And I will only hope in you you you
You’re the only hero
You’re the only one who will never let me down
You’ll never let me down

How could flesh and blood begin
To lift me up out of my sin?
Yet you became the very thing
I looked for in earthly kings
I was longing for you
Though I did not know you
I thought I would hear your voice
If I made the same noise

Chorus

There has always only been you
Bright shining as the sun

Behind the Song:
"This was written in early 2000 in Durban during a morning when I'd been praying and thinking about my former life as a non-believer, when I had literally worshipped certain music heroes of mine. I used to take the song lyrics of my heroes as gospel, trying to figure out life listening to rock stars, but only when I became a Christian did I realize that every single "hero" of mine was a flawed human being unable to give me a valid explanation of life. Now that I had Jesus as the true hero of my life, everything came into perspective." - John Ellis (Tree 63)
