lyrics

To see through your eyes
For the first time
The early morning comes again
And lights a window on the wall

The darkness soon forgave you when she saw that smile
Brighten up the dreary stars
And sleep drains from your head down to your tiny toes
To breathe in life and let it grow

To see through your eyes
For the first time
The days brings many happy times
To keep the tears and fears at bay

Wide eyes are looking high up where the branches sway
With dappled light upon your face
And touch is like a textbook of the things you learn
Absorb and nourish in your stride

I will shelter you here in my arms
From cautious steps until you’re running, running free
You are running, running free

To see through your eyes
For the first time
As night knocks gently at the door
The weight of sleep weighs heavy on your eyes

Senses tingle with each new, curious sight
Alive with colour, laughing all the while
