Give Me Your Eyes
by Brandon Heath



Looked down from a broken sky
Traced out by the city lights
My world from a mile high
Best seat in the house tonight
Touched down on the cold black top
Hold on for the sudden stop
Breathe in the familiar shock
Of confusion and chaos
All those people going somewhere,
Why have I never cared?

Chorus:
Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach.
Give me your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Step out on a busy street
See a girl and our eyes meet
Does her best to smile at me
To hide what's underneath
There's a man just to her right
Black suit and a bright red tie
Too ashamed to tell his wife
He's out of work
He's buying time
All those people going somewhere
Why have I never cared?

Chorus

I've been here a million times
A couple of million eyes
Just moving past me by
I swear I never thought that I was wrong
Well I want a second glance
So give me a second chance
To see the way you've seen the people all along

Chorus

Give me your eyes for just one second (give me your eyes)
Give me your eyes so I can see (Lord, give me your eyes)
Everything that I keep missing (everything)
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted (Give me your heart)
The ones that are far beyond my reach (for the broken hearted)
Give me your heart for the ones forgotten (Give me your eyes)
Give me your eyes so I can see (Lord, give me your eyes)
