The Eye – Brandi Carlile

This song. This one right here. Brandi’s words always speak to me. I hear her songs, but I feel them more. She is my heart’s voice. This is one of the many songs that speak for me when I cannot. She doesn’t know it. But she gets me.

It breaks my heart to see a dear old friend
Go down that worn out place again
Do you know the sound of a closing door?
Have you heard that sound somewhere before?
Do you wonder if she knows you anymore?

I wrapped your love around me like a chain
But I never was afraid that it would die
You can dance in a hurricane
But only if you’re standing in the eye

Where did you learn to walk?
Where did you learn to run?
Away from everything you love
And did you think the bottle
Would ever ease your pain?
Did you think that love’s a foolish game?
Did you find someone else to take the blame?

I wrapped your love around me like a chain
But I never was afraid that it would die
You can dance in a hurricane
But only if you’re standing in the eye

You can dance in a hurricane
But only if you’re standing in the eye

I am a sturdy soul
And there ain’t no shame
In lying down in the bed you made
Can you fight the urge to run for another day?
You might make it further if you learn to stay

I wrapped your love around me like a chain
But I never was afraid that it would die
You can dance in a hurricane
But only if you’re standing in the eye

You can dance in a hurricane
But only if you’re standing in the eye
