Those Eyes

from by Gino Brann

about

It seemed everywhere I went in Nepal, a pair of Buddha eyes were staring down at me. The eyes gave me a sense of strength, security and comfort.

lyrics

Brought some goods up to Mustang to trade
Tibetan wool and a drum to play
Always following the middle way
And always followed by the Buddha's gaze

Circumstances led me back to the plains
I found Lumbini underwater with rain
But no god would let that city drown
With those eyes following me around

Those eyes follow me around
Straight up to heaven from the lonely ground
They watch in silence as I float on down
Those eyes follow me around

And as I'm walking through the gates of Lo
Or wandering comfortably on this plateau
Those eyes are watching me wherever I go
From Kathmandu on down to Ohio

With these two ears I'll listen to the trees
And with this mouth I'll finally learn to breathe
With this guitar I'll move the speed of sound
With those eyes following me around

Those eyes follow me around
Straight up to heaven from the lonely ground
They watch in silence as I float on down
Those eyes follow me around
