All In Your Eyes


When the room was dark
From somewhere the sun shined bright

When the tap was dry
I saw the waterfall from the window

When the wind was blowing hard
I found a cave and escaped

When the earth shattered the walls
I took shelter under the table

When there was weakness
I earned strength

Let the rain come down
And wash my tears
Feel my soul
And drown my fears

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
