Lyrics:

I Opened My Eyes 2014 (music and lyrics by Doug Templeton)

I opened my eyes - and I started to cry
I could feel the swelling - deep in the back of my throat
Temperature's rising - and I'm starting to sweat
about the unborn children
What do they get?

Chorus
What happened to the air we breathe
And what about the land we seed
And how about the water
We can save it - don't waste it

There's a hungry baby crying
And all around - people dying
This beautiful planet
We can save it - don't waste it away

I opened my eyes and I started to cry
I could hear the fighting - off in the Middle East
A killer storm hits - and ice flows melt
While another species dies
How can we help?

Chorus

It's up to you
Give back all the time
Feel it
It's never too late
