Fathers Eyes
by Ask Embla



I could paint a picture of my heart, hanging on a wall
and watch the colours fade away
tell the world that we have been a lie
all this time we’ve spent
I could tell myself that I have done all that I could do
if that would take the pain away
tell the world we lost it, baby I’m not done here yet
I know that people think our love is like a fantasy
I know that no one seems to understand what I see but I
I see with my fathers eyes. I see with my fathers eyes.
You were like a fire and I try, risking all I am
to let you going through the flames
oh, and I can burn so many times, I am proof of that (?)
And I could paint a picture of your heart, hanging on a wall
and I would never walk away
I would stand there asking myself why I’m not broken yet
I know that people think our love is like a fantasy
I know that no one seems to understand what I see but I
I see with my fathers eyes. I see with my fathers eyes.
I know that everybody says you’ve not been good to me
they just don’t realize I’m nothing if I set you free
I see with my father’s eyes. I see with my father’s eyes.
Oh, I have my humanity (?), and I know why
lost in my sanity cause I, I think that I could learn to fly
I see it in my fathers eyes.
Oh I have my humanity (?) and I know why
lost in my sanity cause I, I think that I could learn to fly
I see it in my fathers eyes.
I know that people think our love is like a fantasy
I know that no one seems to understand what I see but I
I see with my fathers eyes. I see with my fathers eyes.
I know that everybody says you’ve not been good to me
they just don’t realize I’m nothing if I set you free
I see with my father’s eyes. I see with my father’s eyes.
Oh why, see with my fathers eyes
Oh why, losing my sanity cause I
See with my fathers eyes
I see with my fathers eyes
