The Story Of Two Eyes
Author: Maranda Berkley


Eyes tell a story for those who choose to see it
Those who don't look too hard, but look deep
And you claim you see something refusing to let me look away
Your hands holding mine, you tell me to look for the same

I don't know what I'm searching for, I just back away in frustration
But you hold on tight, not letting me go
Telling me not to look too hard, just to look some more
But your frustration kicks in as well
You say that maybe I don't see it because you don't have what I'm looking for

It makes me wonder what you see
If it's all the pain and hurt I'm afraid to feel
The times endless of heartbreak I'm terrified of
Or if you see the potential, the possibility of love

It all seems like a dream and I don't know what to think
I wonder if what your eyes see have anything to do with what your heart feels
Or is this a nightmare where you play games with my mind
Where you make me believe the happiness you've granted
Then turn it upside down with lies and cheats just like all other times

I'd like to know what you see, and I'd like to envision the same
I'm just afraid for a set up of what I come to know, of being a mistake
I know there's something, just on the surface, I wouldn't have to look hard
But I'll just keep it to myself in order to protect my heart
