If, in your eyes, I could implant
An image of my soul,
You would always see the genuine me
Whose love, in your heart, you hold.
The simple me would always be
Transparent in your sight.
Through your own eyes, you'd realize
Into my darkness, you brought light.
If, on your heart, I could engrave
An image of my love,
Then you would know how dear to me
Are things I'm fondest of.
Then, in your eyes, I'd always see
Hearts and souls like you and me
Chasing love and happiness
In a world that just won't let it be.
But, I have no magic pencil
To write with on your heart.
I cannot shade your vision
With blinders of some sort.
So, if these things can never be,
I'll live my whole life through
Just singing all my simple songs
That say how I love you.
