In Your Eyes


In Your Eyes - the Resolution of all the Fruitless Searches
 
In some Eastern spiritual paths there is a 
technique of looking into the eyes of the 
Master when he (or she) is giving “darshan” 
to a crowd. I think of darshan, this mutual 
gazing between teacher and students, 
when listening to this song by 
Peter Gabriel, “In Your Eyes”.
 

Youtube: 
 
love I get so lost, sometimes
days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
when I want to run away
I drive off in my car
but whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are
 
all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside
 
in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
the heat I see in your eyes
 
love, I don’t like to see so much pain
so much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive
 
and all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside
 
in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light,
the heat I see in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes
