"All Eyes On Me" as written by and John/takac Rzeznik....
Daylight burns your sleepy eyes
It's hard to see you dreaming
You hide inside yourself
I wondered what you're thinkin'
And everything you're chasing
It seems to leave you empty

And it won't take long to burn
Through the nothing that you've learned
And the things you chosse to be
All eyes on me
But your eyes look away
It's so hard to be someone
Strung out from today
And all that you knew slips away

You drown in deeper oceans
Inventing new religions
They smile and stab my back
I lie and have to laugh

And it won't take long to burn
Through the nothing that you've learned
And the things you chosse to be
All eyes on me
But your eyes look away
It's so hard to be someone
Strung out from today
And all that you knew slips away

And you hide in your room
And the light burns away
And you move from the truth
It's all so far from you

    General CommentSometimes you just want to hide away, and this song expresses all of those apprehensive and despairing feelings. I think that it just shows everything about life.

    General CommentI think the lyrics "You've drown in deep oceans, inventing new religions" describes the feelng of being in over your head. when you get caught up in a situation that u never expected to be in (sex, drugs, lies, ect) you 'invent new religions" by changing ur own morals and values.
    'They smile and stab my back while I lie and have to laugh" to me describes people pretending to be his friend. They are smiling to his face while stabbing him the back while he pretends to laugh along with them, while lying through his teeth.

    General Commenteven just goin by the title, and the words, this song represents to me some teenagers lives adn especially in high school, with the line "all eyes on me" i think if a teen tries something different then the rest of their peers (school mates especially) tend to look at the differently and may antagonize them and put them down and burn u.Every line relates to a teens life when it's in a hole. It means if u take chances as a teen there may be consequences. lovely song indeed, my fav off dizzy up the girl

    General CommentThe goo goo dolls are one of my favourite bands. To me this song is just about how quickly your innocence slips away and how your morals change without you realizing. Its about wanting so much but never reaching it, its about people only noticing the bad no matter how much good you do...
