SOUL TO SOUL

ACROSS THE ROOM, I TURNED TO SEE,
AND FOUND YOU LOOKING BACK AT ME.
BRIEFLY FOR A MOMENT,
OUR EYES WERE LOCKED IN TIME,
I SAW YOUR SOUL INSIDE YOU...
I'M SURE THAT YOU SAW MINE.

THERE'S JUST AN INSTANT KNOWING,
A TOUCHING OF THE SOULS,
WE SEE THE OTHER'S HEARTSTRINGS,
NOT COVERED BY LIFE'S ROLES.

NAKED IN OUR MOMENT,
WE'VE TOUCHED....YOU AND ME,
AND SECRETS OF OUR HEARTSTRINGS
FLOW FOR NONE TO SEE.

LIKE LOOKING THROUGH A WINDOW,
TO SEE THE LIFE INSIDE,
SILENT THOUGH THE PICTURE,
THERE'S NOWHERE WE CAN HIDE.

OUR EYES ARE FILLED WITH VOLUMES
OF OUR WALK UPON THIS EARTH,
AND THEY SPEAK OF ALL THAT'S IN US,
WHAT FILLS US WITH OUR WORTH.

SOME EYES SEEM SO EMPTY
SO CLOUDED UP WITH PAIN,
SOME EYES DANCE IN MERRIMENT
IN SPITE OF THIS LIFE'S RAIN.

SOME EYES ARE SO GENTLE,
SOME ARE HARD AND BLIND,
SOME ARE TIRED AND LONELY,
SOME ARE JUST SO KIND.

BUT JUST FOR A MOMENT,
EXPOSED FROM ALL LIFE'S ROLLS,
WE TOUCHED ACROSS A SPACE OF TIME,
THROUGH THE WINDOWS OF OUR SOULS.
