Lyrics: 

Oh, I wish you could see yourself through my eyes, through my eyes

Oh, I wish you could see yourself through my eyes, through my eyes

Verse 1:

You are beautiful
inside and out
So magical,
full of creativity
So radically true to your feelings
So amazingly gifted with your craft
But they sweep you away, They keep you awake
Those deamons of the past

I hope that one day you will slay them
And your light will shine for everyone to see
And you’ll finally be free

Oh, I wish you could see yourself through my eyes, through my eyes

Oh, I wish you could see yourself through my eyes, through my eyes

Verse 2:

When you’re high, you are ugly
Inside and out
So deceitful
So full of lies
So radically true to those demons
So amazingly mean with your words
There’s nothing I can say
It keeps me awake
The pain that you have caused

And I pray, That one day you’ll slay
And your light will shine for everyone to see
And you’ll finally be free

Oh, I wish you could see yourself through my eyes, through my eyes
Oh, I wish you could see yourself through my eyes, through my eyes

Ooh, I dig the intro a lot! Fire.
And the mellow guitar tune that follows is just lovely, very much enjoyed listening

Cute little ditty and the guitar complements very well, particularly liked the way the line
So radically true to your feelings
was sung and played.

This is so beautiful and that intro is magical. The first verse brought happy tears to my eyes and with the second I felt sadness. Each changed the meaning of each following chorus. Well done!

I've been thinking of doing an a capella song--and now seeing how well you did with your intro...maybe I need to give that some more serious thought.

This is a lovely song--you've done a great job on the lyrics and have a nice jazzy, bluesy kind of vocal that is just terrific. Well done!

Very nicely done. The poignant lyrics seem very relatable to a lot of folks.

This is a great sentiment, and I like the leisurely pace of the song--really lets everything sink in.
