Song Description

"Realize" is a unique love song. It goes though the developement of a relationship...from the beginning stages of initial connection, physical and emotional attraction and fun. It expresses the importance this girl attaches to being appreciated for who she is and how this person makes her feel about herself. The last verse questions the possibility of a future with this person, but even if there is no future, she realizes that this person has affected who SHE is and who she is becoming. She is glad to have had the relationship no matter how it ends up.

Story Behind the Song

Christiana Clark got the idea both musically and lyrically for "Realize" when she was 17. She was dating a very nice boy that made a lasting impression on her and gave her the opportunity to look upon things from his perspective. It was a maturing experience to realize that the people you associate with can make a lasting impression on your developing view-points. This song was recorded by the all-girl sister band 8 Brown Eyes. Christiana (19) is the lead singer and guitarist, Oakley (18), background vocals, plays bass guitar. Summer (15), background vocals, is the awesome drummer. Madeleine (13), background vocals is the keyboardist.

Lyrics

*Realize" by Christiana Clark & 8 Brown Eyes

(verse 1)
The first time I looked into your eyes,
I felt I could leave the ground and fly.
Never imagined I could feel this way.
Things pressing on my mind just flew away.

(chorus)
You helped me realize
That there's more to life
The first time I looked into your eyes.

(verse 2)
The first time that I saw your sweet smile
I knew for you I'd dance a million miles.
Never imagined I could feel like this
Every time your fingers touch my lips.

(chorus)
You helped me realize
That there's more to life
The first time that I saw your sweet smile.

(verse 3)
I like the way you try to dance.
My jokes you always understand.
I love the way you look at me
Like I'm more beautiful than anything.

(chorus)
You helped me realize
That there's more to life.
Each day can be a paradise.

(bridge)
When you're around the sky seems bluer.
All my clouds just disappear.
My world is so much brighter,
Baby, when you're near.

(verse 4)
I wish I could look into your soul
To see if our two halves can make a whole.
But even if it wasn't meant to be,
Knowing you has made a better me.

(chorus-changed)
I've come to realize
As I go through life,
A part of you shines through my eyes.
I hope you realize,
You must realize,
You've touched my life.
