Story

I wrote "Bright Eyed Girl" after I'd spent an incredible Summer traveling the roads of Aotearoa, mostly on rock climbing adventures. Everywhere I went, kept having conversations with amazing women who were trying to be their best, whatever that entailed, and smiling through whatever their path in life. I reckon there's also some of me in this song, but it's written in the spirit of our collective bright light. Over the years, this song has evolved and meant quite a bit to me on a personal level. It's been sung at a dear friend's funeral, some memorials and a wake but it's also been shared at a wedding and on so many other joyful community occasions. Keep shinin'! xx

Lyrics

Bright Eyed Girl (Words/Music 2011,Diaz)

She's got eyes that light up a room

She's got a smile that will bring you home too

Been all around the world

She'll get inside your head

Was passing through just lately

But now she's gone again

*Chorus

'Cause she's a bright eyed girl

Talking 'bout that bright light girl

She's a bright eyed girl

Singing 'bout that bright light, girl*

She's got a world view

She's got sweet innocence too

She's determined to do more than survive

Her passions help her feel alive

Cares about what's right and wrong

But don't worry very long

*

Chorus

'Cause she's a bright eyed girl

Talking 'bout that bright light girl

She's a bright eyed girl

Singing 'bout that bright light, girl*

*

Bridge

She'll take the road less traveled

She runs on solid ground

She's more than good intentions

Ain't it good when she's around

*Chorus x 2

'Cause she's a bright eyed girl

Talking 'bout that bright light girl

She's a bright eyed girl

Singing 'bout that bright light, girl*

*

Keep shinin' bright now :-)
