In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel

I'm a sucker for Peter Gabriel's voice anyway, but this song never fails to make me turn to jelly inside.

I like to listen to a classic rock station when I'm in my car even though the station doesn't come in all that well. So I usually hear "In Your Eyes" when I'm driving. I turn the radio up loud and sing my guts out! It makes me feel both happy and sad at the same time, which is a delicious feeling for some reason.

Well, after thinking about it, I think romantic love often is full of real highs and lows and heightened emotions, so it's no wonder I'd feel both happy and sad when I hear this song.

Anyway, here are the lyrics...

In Your Eyes

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