Through Your Eyes

image

My heart swells
When I behold your eyes
When they look at me
I feel beautiful
My heart leaps for joy
When they love me
My eyes fill with tears
Unite your eyes with mine
Teach me to see the world
Through your eyes

I feel drawn to you like gravity
I’m being carried away by their tide
No pulling back
I’m going to let the tide take me away
Clasp your hands with mine
And walk with me on this journey of life
Take me to your world
I want to see the world through your eyes
A blind mind renders the eyes useless
Your eyes show your mind
Unite your eyes with mine
Teach me to see this world
Through your eyes

Through your eyes she looks more beautiful
The grasses are greener
The flowers more beautiful
And the sky brighter
Like the dawn of the first morn
I can feel the dew on the first grass
The silvery stars to lighten the dark nights
Your eyes make the world livelier
Unite your eyes with mine
Teach me to see this world
Through your eyes

This agony, sorrow and disorder
Obscure the intellect
Your eyes hold the power
To lighten the burden
If this world would be blessed
With more of your kind eyes
Then she would be a better place
Unite your eyes with mine
And teach me to see this world
Through your eyes
