(She’s Got Her) Eye On You
This is about self-esteem, lack of belief and being in a state of denial – the only person who can’t accept the position is the central character.
I like the rhymes within lines used by some of the great lyricists such as Lorenz Hart and wanted to try to emulate this – believe / see, conceive / perceive, loss / cost, while / style. I used this technique in the lyrics for one or two of the other songs as well.
There’s also an oblique reference to “the mind’s eye” – open your mind and see what is staring you right in the eye.
