my father’s eyes lyrics – chris de burgh

i have seen it, i have seen it in my father’s eyes,
i have seen it, i have seen it in my father’s eyes,
i have heard it, i have heard it in my father’s voice,
it’s been a hard life, a hard fight, and all of the things that he wanted
are in his hand, but silver would not betray what’s written in the sand,
and a wall will not keep his people from the promised land;

and i will never believe that the same thing could happen to me,
and i will never believe i’ll give up on the dreams that i see
in my father’s eyes, my father’s eyes;

i will go now, i will go now to my father’s house,
i will show him, i will show him that i’m strong enough,
and there’s a bright light, a great light that’s shining around him
for now he has found a son, who will give to the world
the work he has begun, who will open the door to reveal
the chosen one;

and i will never believe that the same thing could happen to me,
and i will never believe i’d give up on the dreams that i see
in my father’s eyes;
in my father’s eyes, in my father’s eyes;

and i will never believe that the same thing is happening to me,
and i will never believe i’d give up on the dreams that i’ve seen
in my father’s eyes, in my father’s eyes, my father’s eyes;

i have seen it, i have seen it in my father’s eyes.
