'The Hunger Games' Soundtrack: Track-By-Track Review

4. Taylor Swift featuring The Civil Wars, “Safe & Sound” - A decidedly non-Swiftian anthem that embraces the folksiness of the soundtrack. Backing up the country superstar, the Civil Wars add a little bit of gravitas to the melancholy tune.

14. Taylor Swift, “Eyes Open” - The stronger of Swift’s soundtrack contributions, “Eyes Open” places the singer in her own version of the Hunger Games, trying to stay alert and keep her sense of self as the whole world watches her. A clever spin on the trappings of fame.

Taylor singing ‘Eyes Open’ in Auckland, NZ. March 17, 2012

Slipping into her mind was such a wonderful break. It’s pretty intense writing about my own life, my own struggles. It was almost like a vacation to get to write from someone else’s perspective.

Everybody’s waitin’
Everybody’s watchin’
Even when you’re sleepin’
Keep your eye-eyes open
The tricky thing is yesterday we were just children
Playing soldiers, just pre-tending
Dreaming dreams with happy endings
In back yards, winning battles with our wooden swords
But now we’ve stepped into a cruel world
Where everybody stands and keeps score
Keep your eyes open
Everybody’s waitin’ for you to break down
Everybody’s watchin’ to see the fallout
Even when you’re sleepin’, sleep-en-en
Keep your eye-eyes open
Keep your eye-eyes open
Keep your eye-eyes open
So here you are two steps ahead and stayin’ on guard
Every lesson forms a new scar
They never thought you’d make it this far
But turn around (turn around)
Now they’ve surrounded you
It’s a showdown (showdown) and nobody comes to save you now
But you got somethin’ they don’t
Yeah you got somethin’ they don’t
You just gotta keep your eyes open
Everybody’s waitin’ for you to break down
Everybody’s watchin’ to see the fallout
Even when you’re sleepin’, sleep-en-en
Keep your eye-eyes open
Keep your eye-eyes open
Keep your eye-eyes
Keep your feet ready,
Heartbeat steady
Keep your eyes open
Keep your aim locked
The night goes dark
Keep your eyes open
(keep your eye-eyes open) x4
Everybody’s waitin’ for you to break down
Everybody’s watchin’ to see the fall out
Even when you’re sleepin’, sleep-en-en
Keep your eye-eyes open
(keep your eye-eyes open, keep your eye-eyes open, well keep your eye-eyes open, keep your eye-eyes open)
Eyes Open (lyrics) | Taylor Swift (from The Hunger Games Soundtrack)
