07. Lift Your Eyes

Sound Of Melodies
by Leeland



 

You can look in your head and find no answer
You can look in your heart and find no hope
And you can crawl on the ocean floor
Searching for the silver pearl
But you won’t find the treasure in this world

You can lift your eyes
Come on to the cross
There is healing for all who come

You can look at the stars and make no sense of it
(Staring at the sky)
You can search your soul and find no light
Until you look in the Savior’s eyes
And then you finally realize
The saving sacrifice is love divine

Come on and lift your eyes
Lift your eyes, come to the cross
Come one, come all

Behind the Song:
Exemplary of the growing, collaborative character of this young band is “Lift Your Eyes.” “Mike came to me in the studio one day with this catchy rhythm line and I just started messing with it,” Leeland Mooring says. Next thing they knew, the guys were co-writing the track for the album. “We love The Police and Sting, and playing around with the music, the verse kinda reminded me of those influences,” Wood says. “We got close to the end of the recording process and we needed some upbeat songs. I got the guitar and started playing this one. It wasn’t finished yet, but luckily, [producer] Steve Hindalong was like, ‘That’s awesome!’ So we had to write it in the studio that day.”
