Empathy in lyrics #11

Another oldie, but my mood today reminded me of this song. It fits perfectly.

In Your Eyes – Peter Gabriel
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
I am complete
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
The resolution of all the fruitless searches
Oh, I see the light and the heat
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
In your eyes

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