Eisley Brightly Wound Lyrics

Last updated: 11/21/2010 10:00:00 AM

Its happening all the time
When I open my eyes
I'm still taken by surprise
I hold sunlight and swallow fireflies
And it makes me want to cry

I love you

I shall never grow up
Make believe is much to fun
Can we go far away to the humming meadow

[Sherri's singing]
We were walking there
I had tangles in my hair
But you make me feel so pretty
You have shinning eyes
Yes like those forest lights
And it makes me want to cry

[Stacy's singing at the same time]
I was just wishing you were here
So we could walk down to the stream
And we could throw all our leaves in
Seeing our dragon when we look

I love you

I shall never grow up
Make believe is much to fun
Can we go far away to the humming meadow

I shall never grow up
Make believe is much to fun
This place is so lovely
It kind of makes me very happy
Lets go far away to the humming meadow

To the humming meadow

To the humming meadow

Twilight, WTF? | Reviewer: Your dad | 11/21/10

I honestly can't see any kind of connection between these masterpiece of a beautiful written song and an awfully bad written book about teenage vampires...i mean come on people, seriously? does the song mention the words "eternal life", "i'm a vampire and a faggot", "i just can't pick between a vampire and a werewolf"? connection whatsoever, and yes, i agree with someone here, get some REAL literature into you, for God's sake, being on the New York Times Bestseller DOES NOT mean a particular book is good, just means it SELLS a lot...

Wow...way out of proportion. | Reviewer: Clint | 12/4/09

First off, it is IMPOSSIBLE that this song was written in anyway about twilight. Good movie and good books, definitely. I can see how people would find this song reminiscent of it, but it really is in no way linked to that story other than in the perceptions of the people that listen to it.

That being said, come on...quit arguing and just enjoy a fantastic song.

It's funny that people get so defensive about this song being "about Twilight," especially since that is impossible. If it really matters to you so much, do a simple Google search and you'll see what I mean. "Brightly Wound" was on Eisley's first LP "Room Noises," which was released on February 8, 2005. The song was written long before that, but the latest you can say it was written was within the first couple of months of 2005. Twilight was published on October 5, 2005. How could the Duprees have written a song about a book they had no way of reading? Unless they traveled forward into October, they couldn't have been influenced by Twilight in writing this song... it's not like they were reading Stephenie Meyer's journal or anything. They have mentioned Twilight in the last year, but this song is over four years old now. Keep that in mind before you SWEAR that HAS to be the ONLY meaning of this song.

With that said, if it reminds you personally of Twilight... that's fine. It's just also fine if it doesn't make me think of the same thing. Early Eisley music was typically like this-- magical, mystical, sort of like a fairy tale... so this song is very much a representation of who EISLEY is as opposed to anyone else.

what a band! | Reviewer: Naomi | 5/9/09

wow. eisley is amazing! their voices are flawless, their music is beautiful, and their harmonies are wonderful. it's also awesome that they're all cousins and siblings! :)

brightly wound is definitely my favorite song by them.

oh, btw, the people who are comparing this song with twilight- it is very similar . . . too similar. maybe the lady who wrote twilight got her idea from this brilliant band? i can't accept the other option that people seem to be thinking. i cannot believe that eisley wrote this masterpiece about twilight. i like the books and all . . . but that would ruin it for me. she (twilight lady) says on her website that she had a dream about the meadow etc. then wrote the books based off of that one scene . . . maybe she had just heard the song, so she had a dream about it? just a thought. probably nothing like that though. it's probably just coincidence.

Peter Pan? | Reviewer: laura | 5/3/09

As obvious as it is, it reminds me of the 2003 version of Peter Pan. Then again, most of their songs do as I'm a big fan of anything Peter Pan, but still...

Great lyrics. Great music. I love Eisley. =]

Whoa now you guys | Reviewer: Kara | 4/27/09

Whoa, whoa, you all!
Hold your horses back and quit saying rather stoogey things to one another about this whole Twilight/Brightly wound business.

If you perceive it to remind you of twilight then so be it.
Eveyones different.
I, for one didnt enjoy the books and see the song in a different light, but I wont judge or say anything more on my part about that.

And I agree with some of what Amy and Josie were both saying in their reviews. But please keep just the wit and opinions up and the swearing down.

I'm sure Eisley would rather have this all stay as pleasant fan reviews.

But nevertheless, this song is a beautiful one and yes, "It kinda makes me very happy." :]

Keep it peaceful guys,

Lovely | Reviewer: Christina | 4/14/09

This is no song to compare with Twilight.

Anyways, I love this song so much. I think it's absolutely lovely. It makes me so happy. I just picture them at a meadow singing this. It is gorgeous. I LOVE IT, my favorite. Words cannot stand up to this wonderful song.

Amy is a douche. | Reviewer: Josie | 4/10/09

Dear Amy,
You're an idiot. I'm not 13, I'm 20 and honestly the Twilight books maintain a very good story. I'm sure that anything you'll ever do in your poor life, will never amount to the lives that have been effected by these books. I'm not saying I had anytime of epiphany while reading them, but others have. Also, I highly doubt you'll ever have 4 books on the New York Times Bestseller list, so I suggest that instead of putting people down who enjoy the books, that you just ignore them and shut upppppp. I don't even know you and I already think you suck.
In conclusion: You come off like a cunt.

In Response to all of you morons. | Reviewer: Amy | 3/31/09

I swear to God, I'm so sick of hearing everyone relate EVERYTHING to Twilight. This song is a love story and not once do I hear it mention a shitty vampire novel or a talentless writer who was bored with her day job and managed to appeal to 13 year olds around the world.
In conclusion: quit it, and get some real literature into you!!!

In agreement with Twilight Fan | Reviewer: Victory | 1/17/09

Totally, the first image in my head when i heard this song was of Bella and Edward sitting in the field and edward glistening, beautiful. I love eisley, with brightly wound being the first eisley song i heard (God only knows how long ago) it has a specail place in my heart!
