"Shut Your Eyes" is the first German single and the sixth single in total from Snow Patrol's 2006 album Eyes Open. It is the 4th track on the album. The single was released Germany only on 20 April 2007 in three versions. It was later released in the Netherlands on 21 September. The various B-sides featured are taken from a Snow Patrol gig at Columbiahalle, Berlin on 9 February 2007. The live renditions of "Spitting Games", "Run" and "Chocolate" included on the single later appeared on the Australian version of the Signal Fire single. This is Jonny Quinn's favorite song to play live, because of the audience participation and banter.
