Brandon Heath “Give Me Your Eyes” EGP Blog post from October 16, 2012

Looked down from a broken sky, traced out by the city lights
My world from a mile high, best seat in the house tonight [Psalm 119:37]
Touched down on the cold black top, hold on for the sudden stop
Breathe in the familiar shock, of confusion and chaos [James 3:16]

All those people going somewhere, why have I never cared? [Galatians 6:2]

Give me Your eyes for just one second, give me Your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing, give me Your love for humanity [James 1:27]
Give me Your arms for the brokenhearted, the ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten, give me Your eyes so I can see [Matthew 25:35–40]

Step out on a busy street, see a girl and our eyes meet
Does her best to smile at me, to hide what’s underneath [Romans 15:1]
There’s a man just to her right, black suit and a bright red tie
Too ashamed to tell his wife, he’s out of work, he’s buying time [Romans 12:15]

I’ve been there a million times, a couple of million eyes just moving past me by
I swear I never thought that I was wrong [James 4:17]
Well, I want a second glance, so give me a second chance
To see the way You see the people all alone [Hebrews 12:2]
