Look In Their Eyes

This song is by David Crosby and appears on the album Lighthouse (2016).

Friend of the shadows
He's wandering
Knows no country
No god or king

You miss him when you're passing by
You don't hear him when he cries
But if you take a step closer
There's a window to his life

Look in his eyes
(See him in the dark)
What do you find?
(Without a light, without a spark)
Look in his eyes and see the dark

She's holding her child
The way your mother held you
Is turning her around
What you really wanna do?

You miss her when she passes by
You won't know it when she dies
You'll never really see her
Until you look into her eyes

Look in her eyes
(See the burning fire)
What do you find?
(Freedom is her one desire)
Look in her eyes and see the fire

Raft on a shore
Tears in the surf
Strangers in a strange land
Surviving since birth

You miss them when they pass you by
They don't mean a thing to you
But if you take a step backward
It's your story, too

Look in their eyes
(Footprints in the sand)
What do you find?
(The world's forgotten citizens)
Look in their eyes
(See a thousand miles)
What do you find?
(Mother, daughter, father, child)
Look in their eyes
(Families left behind)
What do you find?
(Everything is on the line)

Look in their eyes
What do you find?
Look in their eyes
What do you find?
Look in their eyes
What do you find?
Look in their eyes
What do you find?
