And warns me I must not despair

Those things in life I can’t control.

Behind those eyes there is a love

That never lets me out of sight

And stretches from my deepest flaw

And reaches to the stars above.

Behind those eyes I see myself

The hopes and dreams she had for me

I see myself as I could be

Behind my mother’s eyes.
