In Your Eyes

Album: Second Hand Life (2007)
  • Joe Lynn Turner and guitarist Karl Cochran were attempting to work on a different song when the bones of this love song turned up. Turner explained in the album's track-by-track commentary, "I started playing a bass pattern and Karl started playing the guitar melody and after that it fell together like magic!"

    He turned to Jaime Kyle, who wrote the 1990 Heart hit "Stranded," for help with the lyrics. "I had a feeling she would come up with some good colorful images and she did! I took these images and finished off the lyrics. It's a love song about finding everything in someone else. As the old adage goes, 'The eyes are the windows to the soul. Need I say more?'" >>
