Lyrics

Through the eyes of a child

Written By: Clare Johnston

Through the eyes of a child
I was the star
I was the world
I had to learn
There’s so much more
Than me

Through these eyes I see that
Someone believes in me
Tellin’ me to be strong
So I can move on
Watching me grow
Letting me know
When I’m going wrong
Where I belong
Through the eyes of a child

Through the eyes of a child
It was like a dream
Nothing worried me
I had to realise
Had to wake up and see

The love and the hatred
The beauty the sadness
The joy and the madness
Of giving and losing
Of creating and choosing
My path

Chorus

Learning to draw
To read and explore
To sing and to play
To head my own way
To find a new place
The big world to chase
Moving away from what was mine before

Through the eyes of a child I saw you
I love you
Through the eyes of a child
It’s not forever
Through the eyes of a child
Goodbye my eyes
Of a child

Hold on

Do you remember when we were happy together?
And do you remember what it was like to be friends for ever?

Our ship is sinking everything’s dying
Are we the last ones struggling, surviving?
You’re someone that I could never forget
Hold me

Well maybe if we had a little more of hope in our hearts
Do you think it would save us from this tragic part you better
Keep trying and stop crying

Do you remember when we were happy?
Playing together friends forever
Someone to laugh with someone to die for

Oh maybe if we had a little more of hope in our hearts
Do you think it would save us from this tragic part you better
Keep trying and stop crying

Do you remember when we were happy?
Playing together friends forever
Someone to laugh with someone to die for

Our ship is sinking we’re the ones dying
We’ll be the last ones to stop fighting cause’ we’re surviving

Maybe if we had a little more of hope in our hearts
Do you think it would save us from this tragic part you better
Keep trying and stop crying

We have to fight now if we’re to be happy
Hold on together as if it’s forever

We won’t drown for we’re together now
You better stop crying we’re not dying
