Through Your Eyes

once i was new, but it's long since
and now i find that every inch
from the ceiling to the floor
is full of what i've seen before

for you each scene's a new surprise
oh how i want to see things through your eyes
every stone and each sunrise
i only want to see things through your eyes

once this here world it cast a spell
but now i know it all too well
from the greyness to the ground
and yet somehow, love, you found

a land that can still mesmerize
oh how i want to see things through your eyes
the books, the birds, the butterflies
i only want to see things through your eyes

funny faces in the mirror
walls that wind behind the maze
those were the days that lasted years
these are the years that pass like days

soon i'll be old, but that's weeks away
you've lots of time to save the day
show the city and the sea
how big they used to look to me

the tracks, the tribes, the girls, the guys
oh how i want to see things through your eyes
from now until this body dies
i only want to see life through your eyes
