Gordon Mote – If They Could See You Through My Eyes lyrics

Everyone tells me how beautiful you are
And what a lucky man I am
Although they all can see the way you look at me
They couldn't see it like I can

If they could see you through my eyes
They'd know where the real beauty lies
Deep inside your hearth
Who you really are
If they could see you through my eyes

Only I have to do is gently touch your face
Baby I can tell so much
Although I'll never see the way you look at me
I know I'm the lucky one

In the quiet of night
When I hold you close
I can feel how bright you shine

    Gordon Mote, the writer and singer of this song was born blind. That's why it's so rich and meaningful when he sang this to his wife. I personally find the vanity and the emphasis on outward appearances of the new generation very stifling. So this song means a lot to me as well. It is a love song that has deep seated emotions. It is no mere feeling of attraction or appreciation of one's outward beauty. Instead, it is respect and love from the deepest of his heart. He knows his wife well, and he loves her for who she is. He knows that he is the lucky one. This song, in my opinion, demonstrates deeper love than most modern songs of infatuation.
