Open Your Eyes by Milena Paraschive and Radu Popescu

Winners of the Rio+20 Global Rockstar Contest – Milena Paraschive and Raud Popescu of Romania – sang their beautiful composition of Open Your Eyes for the Rights of Nature as the Foundation for Sustainability Panel Dialogue and Rights of Mother Earth Signing Ceremony at the Rio+20 Earth Summit in Rio de Janiero.

“The message of our video is to “Open your eyes” to make this planet a better place & also to see the beauty of nature all around you.We wanted you to think a little bit more about what you can do to make this world a better place, and to appreciate what Mother Earth gave us. We also wanted to bring out the natural splendor of our homeland, Romania. In the end, the song is about the potential of our country, but more importantly, the potential of humanity as a whole. If we stop to think for a minute and come together as a single, unified race, we can make the world a better place for us and the generations to come. We have been blessed with a wonderful gift. Let’s try and make the best of it. That is what the song is all about.”

Open Your Eyes

See the gentle waters flow
On the crystal sand below
Hear them echo as the sailors row-row-row

To the north, the golden seeds
Never seem to fail our needs
As long as the sun will shine
We will all be fine-fine-fine
We just came here today
We feel so happy to say

Open your eyes and see the stars
Why can’t we just heal all the scars
Poluiton war and violence
Why do we all stay in silence
It’s about time you realize
You need to open your eyes

See the mountains way up high
Reaching far into the sky
Scraping clouds where only birds can fly-y y y

We’re waiting for the day when we
Will learn to live in harmony
All the peace and love we’ve found
Can make the world go round round round

We live on a green land
Its beauty has no end
Open your eyes and see the stars
Why can’t we just heal all the scars
Poluiton war and violence
Why do we all stay in silence

We can make it all work
We should stay together and be all so strong
Peace should guide us;
Love beside us
If we try together
we can make everything better
For us…
If we just open our eyes….
