In Your Eyes

 
 
In Your Eyes
(To the Melody of Yesterday by McCartney)
 
In your eyes
I see a soul that walked a thousand miles
How I long to see once more your smile
The journeys long
It’s in your eyes
 
How it came
That life we had will never be the same
Battles won and lost time and again
And in your eyes I see the pain     

 
We chose love and strength
We stepped up to life’s demands
They chose out of fear
They just couldn’t understand
 
In your eyes
I see a soul that walked a thousand miles
And the touch of gentleness replies
Softly now is in your eyes
 
We chose love and strength
We stepped up to life’s demands
They chose out of fear
They just wouldn’t understand
 
In your eyes
Though your soul has walked a thousand miles
Love and strength is shining in your smile
How great the soul that’s in your eyes
