​In Your Eyes

This song is by Grits and appears on the album Dichotomy B (2004).

When I look in your eyes I see me,
When I look in your eyes I see me.

Let me conversate to you for a minute,
Yo, see...
I never was one too fond of mirrors,
The fear of self was, oh, so clearer then, when I was a knee-high,
Coming up to breathe life, taking these deep breaths,
Climbing up these steep steps to get me to the next stage,
Next page, find me,
Me and you become one from two,
Many levels passed, many devils wrestled,
Many victories through stressful tasks,
Much growing up from a too eventful past, (slow down)
Had to learn how to save my gas,
Owned some Keith Sweat, making it blast,
Like "game on", making the cash,
Got to keep the wisdom and the history of the family's past,
So we're robbing old folks and making a dash,
I really love making you laugh,
When you smile, I see the best of me in your eyes.

When I look in your eyes I see me,
When I look in your eyes I see me.

Seems I fell down again,
Now I just await the moment for my world to end,
You know I got to get up; a lot to live for,
Folks waiting in the wings, pulsating to redeem,
See how much I really bring,
The tables will clad us,
Disable the fool, the fat, and the fables that got us to the plate,
Pitching and batting, working my gums like mad,
Hitchhiking the path, and biking and striking the apt with math,
It'll be like...
I be opposition to those who rustle leaves,
Look at my demeanor, sneeze,
You up for the tussle? - Please,
There's a greater power guiding my step,
And ain't ashamed to admit I was preserved and kept,
These are moments in time documented and recorded in rhyme,
That will sit in the archives as the lives intertwine,
So, mirrored images I hope you find,
I hope your focus is as close as you ever get to the end,
Keep an open mind, player.

When I look in your eyes I see me,
When I look in your eyes I see me.

I ain't through yet - listen...
If I'm the greatest hit, then y'all the best of,
The perfect illustration of my God's express love,
I never been ashamed to ever say that I messed up,
Like Usher, my confessions get raw to check love,
To gain the respect of my kids indeed,
From a boy to a man on bended knees,
And that's the reason why I bruise them seeds,
To ensure a better life than was given to me,
'Cause y'all deserve that, need that,
Proceed that which I leave back when I'm gone,
And, when I'm gone, y'all take the throne,
Lead the family on and keep righting the wrongs,
Keep the word of God close, 'cause this life ain't long,
Stay true to his direction, man, despite these clones,
So when they look in your eyes, they see me,
And beyond that they see Christ and live that life.

When I look in your eyes I see me,
When I look in your eyes I see me,
When I look in your eyes I see me,
When I look in your eyes I see me.
