"Eyes Of A Child, Part 1" as written by and John Charles Lodge....
Listen hear the sound the child awakes
Wonder all around the child awakes
Now in his life he never must be lost
No thoughts must deceive him in life he must trust

With the eyes of a child, you must come out and see
That your world's spinning 'round and through life you will be
A small part, of a hope, of a love that exists
In the eyes of a child you will see

Earth falls far away new life awaits
Time it has no day, new life awaits
Here is your dream and now how does it feel
No words will go with you and now what is real?

With the eyes of a child, you must come out and see
That your world's spinning 'round and through life you will be
A small part, of a hope, of a love that exists
In the eyes of a child you will see

    General CommentTo me this song's about viewing the world through the eyes of a child, as a life filled with hope and eternal love. It's about appreciating how everything is so beautiful underneath all the barriers of reality:

    Earth falls far away,
    New life awaits.
    Time it has no day,
    New life awaits.
    Here is your dream
    And now how does it feel?
    No words will go with you,
    And now what is real?

    In the absence of everything, what is left? Love and hope. The same love and hope seen through the eyes of a child before they grow up, before their vision becomes callous and jaded and they lose sight of the marvel that is their life.

    General CommentI agree with live2daygone2morrow, and would add that this song was written during the Moodies heyday of experimenting with hallucinogens, Eastern spirituality, meditation, etc. Back in those days (and I was there), many folks believed expanding consciousness in this way would bring back a child-like innocence that would allow us to see the world anew. This song was written by John Lodge back when he was doing a lot of writing with Mike Pinder (Pinder was the Moodies' "guru" and I speculate their LSD supplier as well), which is further evidence for my interpretation.

    General CommentI esp. like the "intentional" mispronounciation in the last stanza-"Now what is real" (i.e. the present moment)

    General Commentapart from the dreamy world of the lyrics, the possibility of ultimate clarity if you open your eyes with a child's eyes
    and when you be able to, then u 'll see the unity of all conscious, a one big spirit who comprises all humans, thinking they really exist by themselves, in a clarity moment they are all one entity
    apart from that, this song could be the best of human outcomes ever, in terms of profoundness and beauty of the tones
