Give Me Your Eyes

This is a song by Brandon Heath that I heard a few weeks ago.  I can still remember the time I heard it and really focused on the words, because it made me think a lot.  Most times I do the very same this song professes, just look past people.  The prayer of my heart, as it has been for a good while now, is to see people the way He sees people.  I hope someone else reads it and gets something out of it!

Look down from a broken sky
Traced out by the city lights
My world from a mile high
Best seat in the house tonight

Touch 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

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
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me you heart for the ones forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see

Yeah Yeah 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
Too ashamed to tell his wife
He’s out of work, He’s buying time

I’ve been here a million times
A couple of million eyes
Just move and pass me by
I swear I never thought that I was wrong
I need a second glance
Give me a second chance
To see the way you’ve seen the people all along

Edit there’s now a video to the song on Brandon Heath’s website, you can watch the video, Give Me Your Eyes, here.
