Eyes of the World

All eyes...and ears - listen up. The next three weeks of Shakedown Stream explores the exquisite song "Eyes of the World." We'll hear some of the earliest renditions, famous "stand-alone" versions, guest musicians, rare studio out-takes, and classic Esty>Eyes' gems from throughout the decades. Pour yourself a tall lemonade, sit back, and enjoy.

"Right outside this lazy summer home
you don't have time to call your soul a critic, no 
Right outside the lazy gate of winter's summer home
wondering where the nuthatch winters
Wings a mile long just carried the bird away
Wake up to find out 
that you are the eyes of the World
but the heart has its beaches
its homeland and thoughts of its own
Wake now, discover that you
are the song that the morning brings
but the heart has its seasons
its evenings and songs of its own."
