"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 tile,
Hold on for the sudden stop.
Breath 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 once forgotten
Give my 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 whats 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: 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 once forgotten,
Give me your eyes so I can see.
yeah yeah
yeah yeah

I've Been there a million times
A couple of million eyes
just move and pass 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 see the people all alone

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 brokenhearted,
the ones that are far beyond my reach,
Give me your eyes for the once forgotten,
Give me your eyes so I can see.
yeah yeah
yeah yeah

Hey Brianna,

This is one of my favorite songs too becuase it clearly puts to words the feelings I have when I want to talk to people.,Sometimes I either ingnore the compultion because of my fear, or I don't give myself to the Holy Spirit. I find that when I shut my mouth and let God work, the conversaiton with a total stranger encourages me to do better!

We just listened to this song in my church class! My mom (who is the teacher) made me buy it and it is one of my favorite songs now! It is so true! I do need to see the world through God's eyes and not my own. Thanks for the Musical Friday:) post:)

Love always,
Maddie:)
