Open My Eyes
Nazz Lyrics


Underneath your gaze I was found in
The haze I'm wandering around in
I am lost in the dark of my own room
And I can't see a thing but the fire in your eyes

Clear my eyes, make me wise
Or is all I believe in lies
I really don't know when or where to go
And I can't see a thing 'til you open my eyes

I've been told by some you'll forget me
The thought doesn't upset me
I am blind to whatever they're saying
And all I can see is the fire in your eyes

Can't believe that it's on your mind
To leave me behind

Underneath your gaze I was found in
The haze I'm wandering around in
I am lost in the dark of my own room
And I can't see a thing but the fire in your eyes

Clear my eyes, make me wise
Or is all I believe in lies
I really don't know when or where to go
And I can't see a thing 'til you open my eyes

I've been told by some you'll forget me
The thought doesn't upset me
I am blind to whatever they're saying
And all I can see is the fire in your eyes

Can't believe that it's on your mind
To leave me behind.

First outing for Todd Rundgren and one of the all-time power pop genius songs. It still sounds fresh, exciting and fired up 54 years later.

Itelkner

Perfect description, Paul

John Mariano

The opening notes is very similar to the Who's "" I Can't explain" but the talented Rundgren takes these chords to a different stratosphere - the beginning almost gives you the sensation of blasting off in a rocket and then.....when he has you in that hard rock mood, he counter punches with the "can't believe that it's on your mind......." such s sophisticated change in melody but then, he returns to the hard rock. This song was soooo underrated - just like Todd has always been UNDERRATED

Luca Riboni

Totally agree with you mate

"I can't explain" was the very first thought I had. but, like you said, they quickly took this elsewhere. nice track. I've been nuts about music from this era since I was a little kid. rundgren's early works were not on my radar until. while it's not jumping to the top of my playlists or anything, it's definitely masterful stuff.

I think opening sounds something like bossa nova

@Robert Goldstein This was out on the airwaves a yr. after it was recorded. Wfil famous 56 philadelphia, pa. played this fall of 1969. Great pop psych tune. Was 12 yrs.old when this was played along with "Hello It's Me" by Nazz too.Vietnam era!

Craig Everhart

Same rhythm as The Who, but much much less pedestrian chords. The Who has normal (E major) E, D, A, E. Nazz uses E, Gmaj7, Dmaj7/B, E. You’re right about the stratosphere!

This Nazz tune (and the production on it) has a sound that is easily 3-4 years ahead of it's time, at least! It sounds less 1968 and more 1972-3.

Brother Andre

I totally agree with you on this. I can hear The Who, and the Yardbirds but I think this is much much closer to Big Star in a way, so that is 4 years ahead. They look like a psych band but I think they are hyper driven pop
