Lyrically- Eyes of a child.

I adore Aloe Blacc, his music has nourished my soul and mind for years and “Wake me up” helped me through one of the roughest patches of my life.

I was watching Barbershop 3 for the fifteenth or so time when a song that’s part of the soundtrack began to niggle at me. I shazamed it and screamed with delight when Aloe’s name appeared on the screen. The song has a number of versions but fortunately i found the right one at first try. 

Enjoy Eyes of a child. Aloe likes making music that touches that the heart and head. He outdid himself on this one.

Eyes of a Child

Let your spirit fly high, let your spirit be free 

Cos dreams are meant to come true so dream as big as you wanna be.

 Remember that love is sacred and happiness is the key.

And if you wanna change the world then be the change that you wanna see.

 Make a friend of someone, someone you don’t already know.

Plant a flower in the ground and watch it grow.

Take it easy take it slow
Don’t rush through life just let it flow
Let your imagination run wild
See the world through the eyes of a child

I’ll tell you what I know, I know the world is round
And when a tree falls in the forest, it has to make a sound
Why can’t I believe in God and still believe there’s other life 

‘Cause I bet one day we’ll all look up in the sky and see that light 

I don’t think the world is gonna explode, but its coming to an end

 It’s the day we’ve all been waiting for to start over again
And until then…

Take it easy take it slow
Don’t rush through life just let it flow
Let your imagination run wild
See the world through the eyes of a child

Young boy, young boy don’t grow too fast you gotta make these days last
Young girl, young girl one day you’re gonna want it back when it’s gone and past 

Old man, old man do you remember when you were young?
Lady, old lady how do you feel now that your life is done?

Did you take it easy, did you take it slow
Did you rush through life or just let it flow
Did you let your imagination run wild
And did you see the world through the eyes of a child
Live again Live again
