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

 

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

 

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 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
