Love I get so lost, sometimes
Days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
When I want to run away
I drive off in my car
But whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are

All my instincts, they return
And the grand facade, so soon will burn
Without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In your eyes
The light the heat
In your eyes
I am complete
In your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
In your eyes
The resolution of all the fruitless searches
In your eyes
I see the light and the heat
In your eyes
Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
The heat I see in your eyes

Love, I don't like to see so much pain
So much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive

And all my instincts, they return
And the grand facade, so soon will burn
Without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In your eyes
The light the heat
In your eyes
I am complete
In your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
In your eyes
The resolution of all the fruitless searches
In your eyes
I see the light and the heat
In your eyes
Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light,
The heat I see in your eyes
In your eyes in your eyes
In your eyes in your eyes
In your eyes in your eyes

    Love I get so lost, sometimes.
    Days pass and this emptiness fills my heart.
    When I want to run away.
    I drive off in my car.
    But whichever way I go.
    I come back to the place you are.

    All my instincts, they return.
    And the grand facade, so soon will burn.
    Without a noise, without my pride.
    I reach out from the inside.

    In your eyes.
    The light the heat.
    In your eyes.
    I am complete.
    In your eyes.
    I see the doorway to a thousand churches.
    In your eyes.
    The resolution of all the fruitless searches.
    In your eyes.
    I see the light and the heat.
    In your eyes.
    Oh, I want to be that complete.
    I want to touch the light.
    The heat I see in your eyes.

    Love, I don't like to see so much pain.
    So much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away.
    I get so tired of working so hard for our survival.
    I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive.

    And all my instincts, they return.
    And the grand facade, so soon will burn.
    Without a noise, without my pride.
    I reach out from the inside.

    In your eyes.
    The light the heat.
    In your eyes.
    I am complete.
    In your eyes.
    I see the doorway to a thousand churches.
    In your eyes.
    The resolution of all the fruitless searches.
    In your eyes.
    I see the light and the heat.
    In your eyes.
    Oh, I want to be that complete.
    I want to touch the light,
    The heat I see in your eyes.
    In your eyes in your eyes.
    In your eyes in your eyes.
    In your eyes in your eyes.

    Its something too emotional. Everytime i hear the song i remember those times i told myself to let go of you but everytime i do you were there saying to have one more try, promise to play the game better the next time. I want you back not because of what you've promised but its something that my heart telling me to hold on, to believe, to trust for the most important you made my heart beating ;-(

    It is about a profound aching for the love that can only come from our lord of lords. I lay here in bed, not sleeping, but rather, weeping at 3 a.m in loneliness that can't ever be fully filled by mere humanity... And there is no one to even be a drop in that ocean of emptiness in this moment. My husband has died young, then the friend in my life who i loved and who once knew more of me than anyone else has abandoned me. It can only be my heavenly father's eyes that in my brokenness i am complete. The grand facade of dry eyes and wholeness and strength that my young children need now can only melt away when i can myself be fully vulnerable in his presence to experience the only place that is truly home, in his eyes. I want to stand and stare again... I get so tired working for my children's and my survival. It's the scariness of letting down my guard against my pain, the pride that gets us through the day in a world that doesn't stop turning for my grief. It's allowing my instincts to return to fully feel anything. Gloriously, right there is god's love ablaze, ready always. There he is, in ways that could never be contained even a thousand churches. My searches for comfort there have indeed been mostly fruitless. The only resolution for all my pain is to live surrendered in his embrace, going forward ever in the light, the heat, in his eyes... Thanks peter.
