In Your Mother's Eyes

This song is by Darren Hayes and appears on the album Casey (2008).

I meet your mother in the doorway,
And you both have the same blue eyes.
There's a fire in the soul,
But the flame is low,
And it's burning her out.
And now we're walking down the hallway,
And we tiptoe past your room.
And when you climb out of bed,
It's just like everybody said,
I barely recognize you.

And even though,
Your heart beats slower,
And time is not your friend.
I gotta let you know,
That you've got a long way to go.
When you feel struck down,
When there's no one around,
When the hurt won't slow.
I see your mother's eyes,
See the flame inside,
And I know I'll see you tomorrow.

Yeah it's okay to be afraid,
We're all feeling the same,
This isn't how it's supposed to go.
And now you're sitting at a table,
And you're smiling through the pain.
You're surrounded by your friends,
And I can't remember when,
I heard you laugh so freely.

And even though,
Your heart beats slowly,
And time is not your friend.
I gotta let you know,
That you've got a long way to go.
When you feel struck down,
When there's no one around,
When the hurt won't slow.
I see your mother's eyes,
I see the flame inside,
I know I'll see you...

Tomorrow,
We can head down to Phoenix,
The sun is always beating.
Write that in your book of goals.
Tomorrow,
All the plans that you've been making,
Tell God that he's mistaken.
Tell the darkness to go,
Tell him we said no.
No, just tell him we said no.

And even though,
Your heart beats slower,
It scares me to death,
'Cause you're not like the rest.
And I know you'll go on.
I've seen it,
I've seen it, I have seen it,
In your mother's eyes.
I've seen it in your mother's eyes.
I've seen it in your mother's eyes.
There's a flame you can't disguise,
I'll see you tomorrow.
