  • Looked down from a broken sky
    Traced out by the city of lights
    My world from a mile high
    Best seat in the house tonight
    Touch down on the cold black-top
    Hold on for the sudden stop
    Breathe in the familiar shock of confusion and chaos
    All those people going somewhere, why have I never cared

    Give me your eyes for just one second
    Give me your eyes so I can see,
    Everything that I keep missing,
    Give your love for humanity.
    Give me your arms for the broken-hearted
    The ones that are far beyond my reach.
    Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten.
    Give me Your eyes so I can see.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    Step out on the busy street.
    See a girl and our eyes meet.
    Does her best to smile at me.
    To hide what's underneath.
    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 buyin time.
    All those people going somewhere, why have I never cared.

    Give me your eyes for just one second
    Give me your eyes so I can see,
    Everything that I keep missing,
    Give your love for humanity.
    Give me your arms for the broken-hearted
    The ones that are far beyond my reach.
    Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten.
    Give me Your eyes so I can see.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    I've been there a million times
    A couple million lives
    Just moving past me by, I swear I never thought that I was wrong
    But I wanna second glance so give me a second chance
    To see the way you've seen the people all along

    Give me your eyes for just one second
    Give me your eyes so I can see
    Everything that I keep missing
    Give your love for humanity
    Give me your arms for the broken-hearted
    The ones that are far beyond my reach
    Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten
    Give me Your eyes so I can see

    Give me your eyes for just one second
    Give me your eyes so I can see
    Everything that I keep missing
    That I keep missing
    Give me your arms for the broken-hearted
    The ones that are far beyond my reach.
    Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten
    Give me Your eyes so I can see.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Writer/s: BRANDON HEATH, JASON DAVID INGRAM
