Phil 3:14, Heb 12:2 It's about focus, and looking more forward and less backward. We can learn from the past, but we don't need to dwell there. The carrot knows.

About the song
A fairly fast and easy song to write, the first draft, at least.
The second draft was also fairly fast

The personified characters in the song, Lessons Learned and Mr. Anticipation, are labels given for the everyman or everywoman is us. Pilgrams Progress featured these kind of characters. We use this today when registering for internet forums or in Dear Abby-type media columns.
Lyrics
Keep Your Eyes

chorus:
Keep your eyes on the prize
Keep your eyes on the prize
Keep from distraction,
There's enough of looking back
Keep your eyes on Christ

verse 1:
Lessons Learned is leaving
She leaves behind the past
She is moving forward
Fog is at her back.

One will hear her sorrows
This One will ease her pain
He makes life worth living
He is hers to gain

(Chorus)

verse 2:
Here's Anticipation.
He's wondering what comes next.
Is it disappointment?
Will he be perplexed?

One will hear his worries
This One will give him peace
When his heart is given
His struggles will ease

(Chorus)

verse 3:One
Lessons has a purpose
Anticipate can see
Both are loved by Jesus
(The) Way and go-between

Bridges are a blessing
There's no need to look down
Be ready to look up
Soon, we'll have a crown

(chorus)
