Show Me Your Eyes

Do you remember when
As children we played
With our heads held high?
On wings of illusion
We soared ‘cross the sky,
Over far mountains
To magical lands we’d fly.
 
But now that’s gone,
All the innocence torn
From our unwilling hands,
And now I see
You’re avoiding me,
Your mind is lost on darker paths.
 
Show me your eyes
That shone so bright.
Ignore the lies
That make you cry
And hide in disgrace.
Show me your face,
Don’t hide it from sight.
You’ve still got something
Worth living for.
You’ve still got me,
So show me your eyes.
 
The eye is the window
To the depths of your soul.
In it I see
A reflection of me,
You don’t have to hide;
I know what it’s like.
 
This world’s too tough
To take on alone,
But together we’re stronger,
Together we’ve grown.
So give me your hand
And hold your head high;
This fight ain’t over till at least we’ve tried.
 
Show me your eyes
That shone so bright.
Ignore the lies
That make you cry
And hide in disgrace.
Show me your face,
Don’t hide it from sight.
You’ve still got something
Worth living for.
You’ve still got me,
So show me your eyes.
 
Show me your smile,
I know it’s still there,
Maybe buried beneath a mile
Of fear and scars and broken hearts,
But it’s there nonetheless.
You’re afraid of breaking and falling apart,
But pain won’t ever hold you together.
 
How can something
So beautiful and precious
Believe itself worthless?
How could you value
A diamond necklace
But not your own self?
God made you with his own hands,
He gave you life and an entire world,
Look at his oceans and his lands,
He made them all for you.
Look at my eyes and say it ain’t true,
That they’re beautiful like nothing else;
Look at my eyes and see your own,
Reflected back in heart and soul.
 
Show me your eyes
That shone so bright.
Ignore the lies
That make you cry
And hide in disgrace.
Show me your face,
Don’t hide it from sight.
You’ve still got something
Worth living for.
You’ve still got me,
So show me your eyes.
