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 top...
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
Ones that are far beyond my reach.
Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Yeah
Yeah

Step out on a busy street...
See a girl, and our eyes meet...
Does her best to smile at me,
To hide what's 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

I've been there a million times...
A couple of million eyes...
Just moving, 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 along!

Chorus (x2)

Chorus

[In Background]
Give me Your eyes!
Lord, give me Your eyes!
Everything, I keep missing
Give me Your arms!
For the broken hearted!
Give me Your arms,
Lord, give me Your eyes.

Yeah (x8)

    I think this song is just amazing. It makes a very strong point. Whoever is in need we need to help, to, at least as many as we can. I just love this song.

    We need to truly reach out to those who are broken and begin to care. We need eyes for the ones that are forgotten and show them the love of Jesus Christ in this lost generation. Awesome song.
