Looking deep into your open eyes
Uncovers the constraints of your closed mind —
Paralyzed by predetermined insecurities
Distorting the reality you so plainly leave behind.

Looking deep into your open eyes
Reveals the abstinence of your wounded heart —
Frightened by the fears of true love
Trying to find its way inside.

Looking deep within your open eyes
Confesses the truths of your silent soul —
Muted by the memories of the past
Suffocating the love standing right before you.
