Becca Stevens & The Secret Trio – “The Eye”

Becca Stevens – “I knew from the onset of this project that I wanted to incorporate Turkish & Macedonian poetry in my writing. Writing for “The Eye” started with an oud demo sent to me by Michael League. Mike’s original demo was titled “Crozish Oud” because he thought it sounded like something David Crosby would write on guitar. I listened to it on loop while searching online for “modern Macedonian poets” that I liked. I found Nikola Madžirov’s poetry and style really spoke to me. His poem ‘The Eye’ stopped me dead in my tracks. It had the right sentiment, color/mood/feeling, and length.”

The Eye (Lyrics)
Poem by Nikola Madzirov
Translated by Sasha Dugdale

Open one eye only (x3)
The horizon is in the closed eye
Open the seashell
No solitude will escape
The stones on the riverbed drink up time
The dead fish swim towards the sun

Open one eye only (x2)

Open the sky
With one eye only (x2)

Open one eye only
The world is a young tree on a building site
Windows are rivers of our uncertainty
In my hands I keep a home
A prayer room in a hospital garden

Open one eye only (x2)

Open the sky
With one eye only (x2)
Open the sky
With one eye
