Through Your Eyes

from by John Lester

/

lyrics

The center of a sunset or the city from a rooftop view
The stars on a cold clear winter’s night
All the sights I’ve seen that I’d like to share with you
If they weren’t so far from your sight

If I had one wish I’d like to see through your eyes
Just one moment’s all I’d need through your eyes
Then I could final realize
All it is you that you sacrifice
If I had one wish I’d like to see through your eyes

Take my hand when the shadows start to fall
Or the path gets rocky up ahead
I know the others well they don’t understand at all
But it’s by your strengths they’ve been misled

If I had one wish I’d like to see through your eyes
Just one moment’s all I’d need through your eyes
Then I could final realize
All it is you that you sacrifice
If I had one wish I’d like to see through your eyes

To look beyond the rainbow into a world without any lines
You set your own horizon that no one else can define
When I’m seeking guidance from a different point of view
I always know I can find it if I only turn to you

Please forgive me if sometimes I forget
That you just can’t see things the way I do
But I never doubt you and there’s nothing I regret
For I know you’ll reach all you pursue

But if I had one wish I’d like to see through your eyes
Just one moment’s all I’d need through your eyes
Then I could final realize
All it is you that you sacrifice
If I had one wish I’d like to see through your eyes
If I had one wish I’d like to see through your eyes
