Phillip Phillips Talks ‘Open Your Eyes’ [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO]

by | PopCrush

Phillip Phillips fans, all week long we’re rolling out exclusive behind-the-scenes content about Phillip’s album, ‘Behind the Light’! In this latest video, the ‘American Idol’ champ discusses his track ‘Open Your Eyes,’ and the art of writing down lyrics once you think of them.

“You know when you have a song and it’s floating right above your head?” the singer-songwriter asks. “I’ve done it so many times and I’ll still do it to this day. I’m like, ‘I’ll remember it in the morning,’ and then I won’t remember it.”

“Once you have those ideas, you gotta do it right then, or at least record the part of it, because you’ll forget it, just like that,” he explains, snapping.

Fortunately for him (and for us!) he remembered enough to grace us with ‘Open Your Eyes’ — as well as the rest of the album.
