Brandon Heath Biography

Brandon Heath Knell is a contemporary Christian musician. He was born on July 21, 1978 in Nashville, Tennessee. His father was a police officer, and his mother was a hair dresser. His parents divorced when he was three years old, and Heath was raised by his divorced mother for five or six years before she remarried.

He attended Hillsboro High School in Nashville, where he was a choir member (The SophistiCats) at the school and was encouraged by his teacher to pursue music. Then Heath attended Middle Tennessee State University and earned a BA in English.

Heath began his career by writing songs as a teenager. He was given a guitar as a Christmas gift at the age of 13, and around the same time he began writing his first songs.

Heath grew up nonreligiously, but was invited to attend Malibu Club, a Christian Young Life camp as a teenager. While attending Malibu Club at age 16, Heath said he “heard about Jesus for the first time”; he said he never really went to church until attending the camp, and stated that Young Life “showed me Christ and got me plugged in to a church”. After high school, he became a leader for the camp and is still involved with Young Life across the United States. He also expanded his spiritual horizons by going on faith missions to India and Ecuador, thus setting the table for the mix of religion and music that would soon fuel his professional life.

After his guitar was stolen in early 2000, he compiled a demo CD of his songs for sale to help pay for a new guitar. His original demo CD from 2000 was later released in 2004 as an independent album titled Early Stuff. During that year he released a second independent album, Soldier, which was produced by Chris Davis. Don’t Get Comfortable The EP was independently released in 2005, containing five tracks that were later included on Heath’s debut album.

Don’t Get Comfortable is Heath’s major label debut, and it is the culmination of all of his years studying the songwriting greats. Super-producer Dan Muckala (Backstreet Boys, Nick Lachey, The Afters) uses his pop music dexterity to mold earthy songwriting into the stellar sound that rises above the clutter of mindless radio pop without losing its larger than life hooks.

Brandon Heath toured as a guest on Aaron Shust’s 30-city Whispered and Shouted tour from early to mid 2008. His second studio album, What If We, was released on August 19, 2008. The album’s first single, “Give Me Your Eyes”, was released in July 2008 and became a number-one hit. It stayed at number one on R&R’s Christian CHR chart for eleven weeks in a row by mid December, ending the year as the second most played song on the format.

Brandon Heath currently resides in Houston, Texas. He is a worship leader at The Loft church in The Woodlands area.

Brandon Heath Give Me Your Eyes Song

Brandon Heath co-wrote this song with songwriter Jason Ingram. Heath told the 700 Club on CBN that the song was birthed over a conversation the duo had over a meal.

Lyrically, this song, which concerns Heath’s convictions for wanting to see the world with compassionate eyes, was inspired by people-watching at an airport. He explained in publicity materials: “The song was inspired from the idea that every once in a while, God gives us His eyes. You tend to see a lot of different kinds of people in places like airports. Sometimes, usually only for a few moments, I feel like God gives me true compassion for those people around me. I think that the longer I get to know the character of Jesus, the more compassion I personally have for others. ‘Give Me Your Eyes’ is saying, ‘Jesus, give me Your eyes so that I can see people the way You see people, so I can love people the way You love people’ One of the core goals of my ministry is focused on striking up conversations about social injustices around the world and being a voice for those who have often been silenced by poverty or lack of influence. I want to challenge people more. ‘Give Me Your Eyes’ does that. It is one thing to have compassion and quite another to act on it. Most times, it starts with the people around you.”

Brandon Heath Give Me Your Eyes Lyrics

“Give Me Your Eyes”

Looked down from a broken sky
Traced out by the city lights
My world from a mile high
Best seat in the house tonight
Touched down on the cold black top
Hold on for the sudden stop
Breathe in the familiar shock
Of confusion
And chaos

All those people goin’ somewhere
Why have I never cared?

Give me Your eyes for just one second
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me Your love for humanity
Give me Your arms for the broken-hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah

Step out on a busy street
See a girl and our eyes meet
Does her best to smile at me
To hide what’s underneath
There’s a man just to her right
Black suit and a bright red tie
Too ashamed to tell his wife
He’s out of work, he’s buyin’ time

All those people goin’ somewhere
Why have I never cared?

Give me Your eyes for just one second
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me Your love for humanity
Give me Your arms for the broken-hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah

I’ve been there a million times
A couple of million eyes
Just move and pass me by
I swear I never thought that I was wrong
Well I want a second glance
So give me a second chance
To see the way You’ve seen the people all along

Give me Your eyes for just one second
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me Your love for humanity
Give me Your arms for the broken-hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me Your eyes so I can see

Give me Your Eyes (Give me Your eyes for just one second)
Lord, give me Your eyes (Give me Your eyes so I can see)
Everything (Everything that I keep missing)
(Give me Your love for humanity)
Give me Your heart (Give me Your arms for the broken-hearted)
For the broken hearted (The ones that are far beyond my reach)
Give me Your heart (Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten)
Lord, give me Your eyes (Give me Your eyes so I can see)
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah

Yeah
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah
