Brandon Heath ~ Give Me Your Eyes

Give Me Your Eyes

Before he died, my brother, Rob sent me a Brandon Heath CD.

For personal reasons, this was one of Rob’s favorite songs so let me share it with you today. It’s a sweet reminder to care about the people around us. Rob sought to help the down-trodden most of his life and this song encourages us all to be just like that.

 

“‘Give Me Your Eyes’ hasn’t ceased to surprise me after six years since it was released,” shares Brandon Heath. “The conviction of the need of God’s perspective lies in all of us, and this song has continued to remind us that we need Him to reveal the broken-hearted.”

Heath is currently on tour with Third Day and will return on their Spring 2016 tour. After each show, fans can find Heath with his own pop-up concerts – “Brandon By Request” –where he performs songs by request in the parking lots or coffee shops near the venues. With up to 200 people attending each night, Heath plays fan favorites including “Love Never Fails,” which has prompted a few couples to dance.

Give Me Your Eyes

Looked down from a broken sky
Traced out by the city lights
My world from a mile high
Best seat in the house tonight
Touched down on the cold black top
Hold on for the sudden stop
Breathe in the familiar shock
Of confusion
And chaosAll those people goin’ somewhere
Why have I never cared?Give me Your eyes for just one second
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me Your love for humanity
Give me Your arms for the broken-hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Step out on a busy street
See a girl and our eyes meet
Does her best to smile at me
To hide what’s underneath
There’s a man just to her right
Black suit and a bright red tie
Too ashamed to tell his wife
He’s out of work, he’s buyin’ timeAll those people goin’ somewhere
Why have I never cared?Give me Your eyes for just one second
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me Your love for humanity
Give me Your arms for the broken-hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me Your eyes so I can see
I’ve been there a million times
A couple of million eyes
Just move and pass me by
I swear I never thought that I was wrong
Well I want a second glance
So give me a second chance
To see the way You’ve seen the people all alongGive me Your eyes for just one second
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me Your love for humanity
Give me Your arms for the broken-hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me Your eyes so I can seeGive me Your Eyes (Give me Your eyes for just one second)
Lord, give me Your eyes (Give me Your eyes so I can see)
Everything (Everything that I keep missing)
(Give me Your love for humanity)
Give me Your heart (Give me Your arms for the broken-hearted)
For the broken hearted (The ones that are far beyond my reach)
Give me Your heart (Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten)
Lord, give me Your eyes (Give me Your eyes so I can see)
