Walking With Our Eyes Closed – Gungor Music Video

 
Michael and Lisa Gungor are curators of the Grammy-nominated musical collective simply known as Gungor. The duo uses their skills as accomplished song writers and multi-instrumentalists to tell honest and forthright stories – some personal and some allegorical. Together they’ve tapped their considerable musical reserves to blur genres and break expectations creating a unique magnetic expression.

Gungor is in the midst of their most ambitious endeavor to date called One Wild Life, which is comprised of three full-length albums – Soul, Spirit and Body. On August 7, 2015, they kicked off the album trilogy with One Wild Life: Soul, which debuted as the #15 album on the iTunes Alternative chart. “One Wild Life: Spirit,” released on March 25, 2016. The final piece of the album trilogy concludes with One Wild Life: Body, which releases on September 30, 2016. While each record carries with it its own distinct vibe, the album series presents a body of work that celebrates the adventure and challenges faced by Michael and Lisa Gungor since the release of their album I Am Mountain in 2013.

WALKING WITH OUR EYES CLOSED

We went walking with our eyes closed
Walking with our eyes closed so tight
Then we caught sight of all the fire burning right before our eyes

We started burning bridges
Long before we knew we’d want to go back
Braving a whole new world
We knew that something good was on the horizon

Oh, the demons called out
The angels sang loud
The light pulled us into herself

We went walking with our eyes closed
Walking with our eyes closed so tight
Then we caught sight of all the fire burning right before our eyes

The earth it opened up as
She kissed my lips with coal and kissed it with water
The face it knew me
Shone brighter than the sun
She was our mother

Oh, the demons called out
The angels sang loud
The light drew us into herself

We went walking with our eyes closed
Walking with our eyes closed so tight
Then we caught sight of all the fire burning right before our eyes
