It's never where you think you'll find it
The thing you think you're looking for
It could take you all your lifetime
And still you'd never quite be sure

You could look everywhere
Because you know it's there
Somewhere beneath the sky
But too close and you'll get burned
There's no lesson learned
Yet some people pass it by

You'll see things different when you look through my eyes
Things are different if you see what I see
Just look closely and you'll see through my eyes
It could be different, you'll see how it could be,
If you can see

You may need help to find your way home
Those who brought you here have flown
The road you take is full of hope or sadness
The choice you make will be your own

But you're not alone in there
Just say hello in there
cause there are many just like you
They'll help you find someway
To make it all the way
They'll tell you all you have to do

You'll see things different when you look through my eyes
Things are different if you see what I see
Just look closely and you'll see through my eyes
It could be different, you'll see how it could be,
If you can see

No one warns you of the heartache
No one can hide you from the storm
But from the shadows there will come the sunshine
A place to dry and keep you warm

Though no one tells you how
Your hearts beating faster now
Getting stronger day by day

Suddenly it's clear, what you seek is near
It's what you learn along the way

Its never where you think you'll find it
The thing you think you 're looking for
Well it could take you all your lifetime
Still you'll never quite be sure
You'll find it, just look closer
