Behind those eyes there lives a soul
That speaks to me from deep within
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.
