Father's Eyes lyrics

I could paint a picture of my heart, hanging on a wall
And watch the colours fade away
Tell the world that we have been a lie
All this time we've spent

I could tell myself that I have done all that I could do
If that would take the pain away
Tell the world we lost it
Baby I'm not done here yet

I know that people think our love is like a fantasy
I know that no one seems to understand what I see but I
I see with my father's eyes
I see with my father's eyes

You were like a fire and I've tried, risking all I am
To let you go and kill the flames
Oh, a heart can burn so many times
I am proof of that

Oh, I could painting a picture of your heart
Hanging on a wall
And I would never walk away
I would stand there asking myself why I'm not broken yet

I know that people think our love is like a fantasy
I know that no one seems to understand what I see but I
I see with my father's eyes
I see with my father's eyes
I know that everybody says you've not been good to me
They just don't realise I'm nothing if I set you free, I
I see with my father's eyes
I see with my father's eyes

Oh, I got my humanity, and I know why
Lost in my sanity cause I, think that I could learn to fly
I see it in my father's eyes

Oh, I got my humanity, and I know why
Lost in my sanity cause I, think that I could learn to fly
I see it in my father's eyes

I know that people think our love is like a fantasy
I know that no one seems to understand what I see when I
I see with my father's eyes
I see with my father's eyes
I know that everybody says you've not been good to me
They just don't realise I'm nothing if I set you free, I
I see with my father's eyes
I see with my father's eyes

Oh why, I see with my father's eyes
I know why, lost in my sanity, cos I
See with my father's eyes
I see with my father's eyes
