Open Up Your Eyes

I just got the new Daughtry disc. I love it. LOVE IT! LOVE IT! As a wife a miscarriage sufferer and after a long journey now a mom, this song seemed to hit me particularly hard and wanted to share the powerful lyrics:

"Open Up Your Eyes"
A single rose to remember
As a single tear falls from her eye
Another cold day in December
A year from the day she said "goodbye"

Seems it's only been a moment
Since the angels took him from her arms
And she was left there
Holding on to their tomorrow
But as they laid him in the ground
Her heart would sing without a sound

For the first time you can open your eyes
And see the world without your sorrow
Where no one knows the pain you left behind
And all the peace you could never find
Is waiting there to hold and keep you
Welcome to the first day of your life
Just open your eyes

As a single lifetime lays behind her
As she draws her final breath
Just beyond the door he'll find her
Taking her hand she softly says

For the first time you can open your eyes
And see the world without your sorrow
Where no one knows the pain you left behind
And all the peace you could never find
Is waiting there to hold and keep you
Welcome to the first day of your life

Just open your eyes as I lay you down tonight
Safe on the other side
No more tears to cry

For the first time you can open your eyes
And see the world without your sorrow
Where no one knows the pain you left behind
And all the peace you could never find
Is waiting there to hold and keep you
Welcome to the first day of your life
