Eye on it By: Toby Mac

Lyrics

Eye on it, eye on it
Eye on it, eye on it

Eye on it
Eye on it
Eye on it, eye on it

I set my eyes to the west, walkin' away from it all
Reachin' for what lies ahead, I got my eye on it
I see my sweat hit the ground
I put my foot in the block
This is the race of my life
And I can’t wait for this shot

‘Cause I can feel the wind at my back
Chest is pumpin' like a heart attack
Feet are movin' and my mind is locked
Pressin' on with everything I got

I got my eye on it
I got my eye on it
I got my eye on it
Eye on it

I’ve got my eye on the prize, I’ve got my eye on it
I’ve got my eye on the prize, I’ve got my eye on it
I’ve got my eye on the prize, I’ve got my eye on it
I’ve got my eye on it and I will not quit

I’ve got a new passenger to help me navigate the way
So when my heart hits the floor I can recalibrate
I feel the deeper callin' me, all else is fading in the past
So let me run in the race that I know is built to last

‘Cause I can feel the wind at my back
Chest is pumpin like a heart attack
Feet are moving and my mind is locked
Pressin' on, I’ve gotta take my shot

I got my eye on it
I got my eye on it
I got my eye on it
Eye on it

I’ve got my eye on the prize, I’ve got my eye on it
I’ve got my eye on the prize, I’ve got my eye on it
I’ve got my eye on the prize, I’ve got my eye on it
I’ve got my eye on the prize and I will not quit

I will not quit

I got my eye on it
I got my eye on it
I got my eye on it
Eye on it

I’ve got my eye on the prize, I’ve got my eye on it
I’ve got my eye on the prize, I’ve got my eye on it
I’ve got my eye on the prize, I’ve got my eye on it
I’ve got my eye on the prize and I will not quit
