My Eyes Only

THE STORY – My Eyes Only is about seeing behind the curtain of our masks. Feeling sadness while someone is acting happy. Experiencing collective change or predicting something is going to happen and no one believes you. It sometimes feels like you are alone in this. I know I did and the thought made me feel lonely. Later when I got more than enough proof for myself I learned it doesn’t matter what they think of me. It is what I see. It’s my eyes only and I need to be there for me. 

In this song a sensitive women describes her journey. As she is in a relationship, she has seen their goodbye already before it happened.

Lyrics

It don’t matter how hard I cry, this late at night   
It don’t matter you don’t see what I see
its my eyes only
and it don’t matter, what you say you feel
as long as its from the heart
It don’t matter where you stand
cause it’s a start

But I, I have to be strong
I have to be taller and older than I am
You say that I,
I must be wrong
It even makes it colder and lonelier than I am

Cause I still feel the butterflies, and I
still hear the lullabies, and I
Still feel the anger
and sadness in their minds, and I
witness their many lies
their prayers to God
their hundred why’s and their
thousand goodbyes

It don’t matter how hard I try, this late at night
It don’t matter you don’t see what I see
its my eyes only
and it don’t matter, you say you feel alive
as long as you work hard,
It don’t matter where you stand right now,
cause it’s a start

But I, I have to be strong
I have to be taller and older than I am
You say that I, I must be wrong
It even makes it colder and lonelier than I am

But I still feel the butterflies, and I still hear the lullabies, and I still see the anger
and sadness in their minds, and I witness their many lies
their prayers to God
their hundred why’s and their
thousand goodbyes

But I miss you
More than I can say
I guess I miss you

Cause I, still feel your butterflies
Still hear your lullabies
Still see your anger and sadness in your mind
And I witnessed your many lies
Your prayers to God
Your hundred whys

and our final goodbye

I Can Make Me Happy

THE STORY – Even though things are not all that well in a relationship, we oftentimes find ourselves waiting and hoping it gets better. I know a lot of people do. 

After a breakup we often feel a void. We think the other one is our home. Films teach us “You completed me”, and songs tell us “I am nothing without you”.

But in the emptiness that you feel, you may discover “I am whole already”, as we all are a spark of the oneness, the Universe. Whatever you want to call it.

It’s the mind telling us stories, (believes) we are not good enough, not lovable and that someone else can make me happy. The truth is, I, as the larger part that I am, am already whole, love, good enough.

May this song inspire to find  love and strength within again. 

Love, Eyra 💋

LYRICS

Run, I should have run away
Don’t know why I stayed
I guess I was still trying

Fly, I should have flown away
Don’t know why I stayed
It get’s familiar that crying

And all this time that I felt broken
I kept on hoping

So I’ll go
Cause I know,
deep in my heart I know that I will find my way back home again
So I go
Cause I know,
deep in my heart…
I will be whole again

Hey, I can make me happy
no matter what my mind tries to say
I can make me happy
Cause happiness is my only way

I can make me happy
no matter what my mind tries to say
I can make me happy
cause I’m whole

anyway

 

When She Sings

The Story behind When She Sings – “For me it is about a female artist, traveling alone in a campervan around the world. She seems tough and strong and people think she is so cool, pursuing her dream. They only see her freedom and fame, not what is going on inside of her. Her fears of sleeping alone in a van on a parking space or her pain of missing the man she loves. On the outside she may look tough and fearless, but a sparrow with broken wings is when she sings. 

I wrote it as a reminder that we never know what is going on with someone.” 

When She Sings

By LISA BOLIN & EYRA MOON

Eyes like hypnotized
Blinded by their minds
Her hair is dancing in the shimmering light
Independent, wild and free

Crossing borders, ahead of time
Being what she wants to be
That is what they say
That is what they wanted her to be

(chorus)
But a sparrow with broken wings
Is when she sings
A sparrow with broken wings
Is when she sings

She walks a path
They cannot see
Only seeing what they want to see
Her beauty and her light
Cover what she hides inside

A sparrow with broken wings
Is when she sings
When she sings

If only they would listen
If only they could seePast the glitter and light
of what she tries to be
Heart held in safe hands
Gently whispering words in her ear
Grey clouds washing over,
Her remaining fear

But a sparrow with broken wings
A sparrow with broken wings
A sparrow with broken wings

You can hear it when she sings

Think not only about the usual, but in times like these especially about people who feel isolated, ill, or even a video message with a song for loved ones in lockdown in another country is possible.

Music is healing and brings comfort and most of all memories of a lifetime! Send us a message with your story. Together we can see what we can do and how.

Eyra: “I recently sang for a group of friends, who asked me to perform for their friend who heard she has cancer. They wanted to celebrate live and made her forget about the disease for one night. It was a beautiful experience and I am so happy and grateful the music running to and through me, can lift up a few people for just a moment and make an unforgetable memory”
