What to know about "Behind My Eyes" by Jackie Evancho

"Behind My Eyes" is a single by Jackie Evancho released in September 2023. The production resembles '80s new-wave pop, and the vulnerable lyrics tell the story of battling dark thoughts. 

Evancho opened up about the song's message for World Mental Health Day. ""The impact that I'm hoping this will have on people with mental illness is that, of course, I don't want them to feel so alone," she said. "But I also wanna touch on things that a lot of people don't really talk about, but we all universally feel, and to show that it's OK to struggle with these things."

"Behind My Eyes" by Jackie Evancho lyrics

I, I've been getting kinda scared
And feeling unprepared
For what's to come

There's this fear deep inside of me
Like there's something I cannot see
And it's coming after me
It's hard to bear



If you could see behind my eyes
You'd see the truth inside the lies
And if you read between the lines
You'd see I'm running from my mind

Things lurking in the dark
They like to leave a mark
Inside of you

If you care just to take a peak
In a false reality
Come take a trip with mе
Let's go to the moon

If you could see behind my еyes
You'd see the truth inside the lies
And if you read between the lines
You'd see I'm running from my mind

Fade in and out of a daydream
Our waking life torn at the seam
I am the match
You're the gasoline

If you could see behind my eyes
You'd see the truth inside the lies
And if you read between the lines
You'd see I'm running from my mind

If you could see behind my eyes
You'd see the truth inside the lies
And if you read between the lines
You'd see I'm running from my mind

Fade in and out of a daydream
Our waking life torn at the seam
I am the match
You're the gasoline
