Taylor Swift, ‘Eyes Open’ — Lyric Video (WATCH)
What do your office supplies do when you’re not around? Well, if you’re Taylor Swift, they have parades, work on their animation skills, play tennis and sing your songs. At least that’s the impression you’ll get from this creative lyric video for her song “Eyes Open.” (Watch below.)
The clip is a unique take on the song, which Taylor wrote from the perspective of a now well-known fictional character, Katniss Everdeen, of “The Hunger Games.”
“Slipping into her mind was such a wonderful break,” she told Rolling Stone. “It’s pretty intense writing about my own life, my own struggles. It was almost like a vacation to get to write from someone else’s perspective.”
“Eyes Open” is one of two Taylor songs to appear on “The Hunger Games” soundtrack. “Safe & Sound,” which features the Civil Wars, has a melancholy lullaby feel, a stark contrast from its sister song. Other country singers who appear on the movie’s soundtrack include Miranda Lambert and the Pistol Annies.
