Someone Else's Eyes

This song is by Aretha Franklin and appears on the album What You See Is What You Sweat (1991).

This is my life and it's my right to live
The way I want to live each day
That's what I wanna say
And this is my song

And for too long I sang someone else's melody
It wasn't really me
Somehow I took myself for granted
In someone else's eyes

I saw reflections of a girl I was who caught me by surprise
Seein' a woman who's defined by you, I never realized
I can't love you, I can't love me through someone else's eyes

You were the sun, I was the one who just
Revolved around you day and night
You were my only life but if I were free
Baby, I'd take control of everything inside of me

Find who I wanna be
I'd never take myself for granted
In someone else's eyes

I saw reflections of a girl I was who caught me by surprise
Seein' a woman who's defined by you, I never realized
I can't love you, I can't love me in someone else's eyes

I gotta show myself I can still exist without a man
Gotta finally take control, gotta see myself as whole with you
Though you're not the one to blame, I was lost inside your name
And I'll never be the same till I find a way back home again
In someone else's eyes

I saw reflections of a girl I was who caught me by surprise
Seein' a woman who's defined by you, I never realized
When I, I can't, I and I will not, you can't make me
Ooh, someone else's eyes, ooh, baby, baby, baby

Till I find a way back home again
Through someone else's eyes

I saw reflections of a girl I was, hey, caught me by surprise
Seein' a woman who's defined by you, I never realized
I can't love you, I can't love you through someone else's eyes, ooh

Someone else's eyes, no baby, ooh
Someone else's eyes, can't do it, I can't do it
I, I love you, sweet baby, I wanna be with you, baby
Through someone's else's eyes, ooh

Someone else's eyes, oh, baby
Oh yeah, someone else's eyes
I wanna be by your side
God haven't you heard this lady's cry?
