Peter Gabriel "In Your Eyes"

From the "Secret World Live" concert.

This concert always blows me away.....a masterpiece in staging, lighting, and performing.








love I get so lost, sometimes
days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
when I want to run away
I drive off in my car
but whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are

all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
the heat I see in your eyes

love, I don't like to see so much pain
so much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive

and all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light,
the heat I see in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes

  2. Agreed, I love this song. Because of Peter Gabriel, I use the term "Moribund" as often as possible. Ever heard games without frontiers from Gabriel? Awesome also.

  3. Yep, I've been following Gabriel, and to a lesser extent Phil Collins, ever since I first heard Genesis in the mid/late 70's.
    I thought Collins was hilarious in the Miami Vice episode "Phil The Shill".
    He fit the role perfectly, and looked like he had a good time doing it.

Keep it down to a low boil, please!
