There is so much I need to say...
But these words just get in the way.
Will you please then look in my eyes?
In their warmth you will find no lies.
Let them speak to you in my place
Sink in their depths without a trace
Hear them swear my love in a pledge
Let them entice you to that edge
That leads down to my love's abyss
Let my eyes invite you to kiss
Hear them whisper, “Fall into me!
Let this ecstasy set you free!”
Tonight let my eyes be my voice
Hear their plea and make the right choice!
