Wide Eyes Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Overlooking the canyon,
Right from where I'm standing,
I swear I see my former glory still burning
It had every intent of returning
Verse 2
There's years to planning and landing
To prepare for jumping the canyon
It's not the death-defying, or cheering,
It's the thrill of clearing, barely clearing
Verse 3
And if you see no hope for me
I still see hope for you
In the high rise of the morning
The exception that proves my rule
Verse 4
Still I'm tying up loose ends
I'm tying them to a chance to defy them
To protect and hide them, untie them
These are not the ones you want to untie them
Verse 5
And now I'm jumping the canyon
After years of planning and planning
It's the monumental challenge of feeling
That you must fight before you start freewheeling
Verse 6
And if I see no hope for me
I still see hope for you
In the wide eyes of the morning
The exception that proves my rule
Verse 7
And if I see no hope for me
I still see hope for you
In the high rise of the morning
The exception that proves my rule
Verse 8
Proves my rule
