The first time I saw you
I felt weak inside
I searched my heart and mind
For words I couldn't find
Somehow you seemed to see
What came over me that night
As a love began to grow
That would last for all time

And you said,
I can see it in your eyes
They're the windows to your soul
Sometimes they say more
Than words could ever hold
We could wait a thousand lifetimes
And never feel like this again
But when you look at me that way
I can see it in your eyes

Later on I asked your hand
And I prayed the time was right
I knelt down on one knee
And said would you be my bride?
And the sound of silence
Filled the air
As your tears fell with mine
You didn't have to say a word
For me to realize

And I said,
I can see it in your eyes
They're the windows to your soul
I see dreams come alive
And future plans unfold
I could wait a thousand lifetimes
And not find a perfect love again
But when you look at me that way
I can see it in your eyes

Many years have come and gone
And what a life we've made
How again we search for words
As the heart inside me breaks
Until death do we part
Were the vows we made
And now the time has come
But goodbye is so hard to say

I can see it your eyes
They're the windows to your soul
The light of life is burning low
Soon you're leaving me I know
The time that's left is precious dear
So please don't she'd another tear
You don't have to say a word
I can see it in your eyes

I've heard you say a thousand times
I'll love you dear until I die
But you don't have to say a word
I can see it in your eyes
