5 Ny – Open Your Eyes lyrics


Open your eyes and just look down
You're not that far above the ground
And when you've found you can't, hold on
Open your eyes and look around
Suddenly you're falling down
And when you've found you can't, hold on

Little Sara's out the door
And she's needing so much more
In her mother's heels she heads downtown

With homework left to do
She's gonna find someone new
And come creeping home without a sound

Jesse walks the halls alone
Her head held down she thinks of home
Daddy's face keeps running through her head

She hears the school bell ring at three
And knows that she's no longer free
Another night to cry herself to bed


Stanley works his life away
Gone years without a raise
Silent rage he's been taking home

And only Jane can feel his pain
'cause she's the one who pays
Living alone until her kids are grow
