Taylor Swift’s New Song ‘Eyes Open’ From ‘The Hunger Games’ Hits the Web in Full
Taylor Swift's new song 'Eyes Open' from 'The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 and Beyond' soundtrack is now available online in its entirety, thanks to an early leak. See below to hear the cut of the just-released track, which we anticipate will fit the mood of the movie perfectly. 'The Hunger Games' hits theaters on March 23.
On Tuesday, a preview of the song debuted, only to appear less than 24 hours later in full on Perez Hilton's blog. That's no big surprise, given that we're just days away from the release of the larger than life soundtrack. In this surefire hit, Swift shows some range as she sings about watching your back and keeping your eyes peeled at all times. It can only be assumed the song is about the main character's struggles in the movie.
"Everybody's waitin', for you to break down / Everybody's watchin', to see the fall out / Even when you're sleeping / Keep your eyes open," Swift sings during the chorus.
The song is one of two featuring the country singer on 'The Hunger Games' soundtrack. She also teamed up with the Civil Wars to produce 'Safe and Sound,' a song she recently performed live, solo, on the Australian trek of her Speak Now World Tour. Miranda Lambert and the Pistol Annies also appear on the soundtrack, which is available at iTunes on March 20, just three days before the much-anticipated film makes its impact in theaters.
