10. Eyes Forward

Closer
by Shawn McDonald



 

Jumped in the car, slammed on the gas / Got to get away from here real
fast / The enemyís breathing down my neck / Trying to grab a hold and make me wreck / Hot on my tail,
trying to make me fail / Trying to take the wind up out of my sail / Trying to run me off this road // Eyes
Forward / Donít look at what ís behind / Eyes Forward / Donít take your eyes up off the prize // Well
the pressures, bleeding in / Giving me some blurry vision / Fogging up my intellect / Where love and
hate , they intersect / Keep the pat h of the mission / Never going to lose my ambition / Got my eyes up on
the prize

Behind the Song:
'Jumped in the car, slammed on the gas / Got to get away from here real fast.Ē Itís a metaphor, painting this picture of the enemy constantly at my throat. When things get difficult, I believe that sometimes itís the devil was at work, so this is a picture of a spiritual battle. I have to keep my eyes forward; keep my eyes on the prize. Iíve always struggled with wanting to look back, but I donít want to take my eyes off of Christ.' - Shawn
