Show Me Your Eyes – Lyrics

Words and music by Justin Neway

Verse 1
Drop into my life take a look around
See what you can read in the things I’ve found
Passages of dreams, love without a sound
Ribbons in the breeze, ashes on the ground

Refrain
Show me your eyes and give me your smile
You know that life is telling his story for the while

Verse 2
Take me to your heart just to show you care
If you know the way I will lead you there
Colors of a memory, patterns in the air
Water flowing to the sea, petals on the stair

Refrain
Show me your eyes and give me your smile
You know that life is telling his story for the while

Verse 3
Sing a song of love, never let it show
Need me when you can, touch me when you go
We can make no reckonings, where the wind will blow
But if we share our emptiness, we can make us grow
If we share our emptiness, we can make love grow
