Keep your eyes open as if
Love could come a walkin as if
Everything else is meaningless, meaningless
And that's the way it oughta be
Mysteries, especially she
Oh everything else
Is almost meaningless, meaningless
Oh say
Well i will always feel that way
And if a time a change should come
You'd remember my name
Oh say
Well i will always feel that way
And if a time a change should come
You'd remember my
You'd remember my name

Keep your eyes open as if
Everyone's a poet as if
Everything else is meaningless, meaningless
And that's the way it oughta be, yea
Mysteries, including me
Oh well everything else
Is almost meaningless, meaningless
Oh yea, oh say
Well i will always feel that way
And if a time a change should come
You'd remember my name
Oh say
Well i will always feel that way
And if a time a change should come
You'd remember my
You'd remember my
You'd remember my name

To be a little bit advanced
You gotta take a little bit of a second chance
On life
You gotta get on up and dance
You better throw all your precious plans
Better wave them goodbye
A buh bye, buh bye, bye bye bye
Ya gotta keep your eyes open
As if everything else is just along
Come along on it's way
And that's the way it oughta be
Well mysteries in everything
Well i say, i say
Well i, i will always feel that way
And if a time a change should come
You'd remember my name
Oh say
Well i will always feel that way
And if a time a change should come
You'd remember my
You'd remember my
You'd remember my name

    Sometimes we are in the midst of uncertainties, with love and career, actually while listening to this song last night I felt that he is singing for the girl and for himself, like he is now hopeless, but if she change her mind, he is there so she will remember her name, I thought also of death, all of his work will be forever remembered, meaningless for the poet I think is good because a poet can make a meaning to anything that he wants to giving meaning to. Like everything is white it depends on the painter what color to put in.
