In Your Eyes

Sometimes secrets can be hard to find They stay hidden so far out of sight Spirits of the past keep haunting my mind With invisible things I just can't fight You say that you love me and I know it's true For your smile doesn't give me a choice But your eyes are the windows that tell on you It comes from your heart's secret voice I try to compete with the phantom of dreams Someone that I've never met At least when I'm with you that's how it seems He's someone you can't forget You always stare at some far away place Some place I've never been You're looking at me but seeing his face I try, but I just can't get in Sometimes secrets can be hard to find The heart can wear a disguise And though you've tried to leave him behind I can still see him in your eyes
