Lyrics

The Eyes of a Child,
So innocent and pure,
A Child's heart is full of song.
Take their tiny hands,
And lead them to the light.
As adults we see the pain in the world and
it sometimes don't seem right.

But through the Eyes of a Child
The World seems magical
There's a sparkle in their eyes,
They've yet to realize,
The darkness in their soul.

The Beauty of their smile,
Adventurous and wild.
Life is kinda gay,
but it doesn't seem that way,
Through the Eyes of a Child.

So, don't give up,
Even when the road seems long.
Just find that child inside you.
Yeah, you've got to find you.
Spread your wings and fly, to the brightest star
If you want, I can even get my friend Steve
to detail your car, for like 20 bucks.

But through the Eyes of a Child
The World seems magical.
There's a sparkle in their eyes,
They've yet to realize,
The darkness in their soul.

The Beauty of their smile,
adventurous and wild.
Sure, life is kinda gay,
but it doesn't seem that way,
Through the Eyes of a Child.

Got an eye on my hand!
I've got an eye on my hand!
I've got an eye on my hand!
But still I cant find you!
An eye on my hand!
Where have you gone girl?
An eye on my hand!
I'm coming up behind you.
Eye on my hand!
Don't turn around now,
Cause I'm right there,
I'm coming up behind you!

Through the Eyes of a Child,
The World seems magical.
There's a sparkle in their eyes,
We've yet to realize,
The bastards they really are!
The Beauty of their smile,
Adventurous and wild.
Sure, life is kinda gay,
But it doesn't seem that way,
Through the Eyes of a Child.

Sure, life is kinda gay,
but it doesn't seem that way,
Through the Eyes of a Child.
