Music in Your Eyes

This song is by Stan Rogers and appears on the album From Coffee House to Concert Hall (1999).

When I was younger in the days of my youth
I used to sit down and watch the river go down
And see my dreams roll 'round the bend
Hoping they'd come back again
Now a long time's gone by and at least once a day
I sit and think about when you were holy
And so eager to see what you could find
Now ain't it funny how we lost the timeâ?¦

You wonder why I lay awake at night
Well I just can't get to sleep
It's not the devils or the feelings inside
It's the peace of mind I seek
Cause you stand there laughin', I'm standin' starin'
And I've come all this way and all you ever said was
"Well, that's OK"

Music in your eyes, I can tell by your surprise
You've been doin' fine, so don't give me no more lies
We'll understand it all in time
Music in your eyes, my God, I'd love to watch you dance
Now don't be feelin' shy, 'cause I know you know how
And you're not sleepy now

When I came into this town I knew my hands were bounded
I knew I'd have to pay for my ways or else go underground
But I said, "Music in your eyes, I can tell by your surprise
That you've been doin' fine, so don't give me no more lies
We'll understand it all in time"

I wouldn't place you in a hole, 'cause that's not the way to do it
I know you want to be set free to let your love come shining on through
So come on and shine now
Music in your eyes, I can tell by your surprise
That you've been doin' fine, so don't give me no more lies
We'll understand it all in time
You know, we'll understand it
