The essential idea behind this song is the old expression “the eyes are the mirrors of the soul”.  I wanted to write a song that would encapsulate that feeling of looking into the eyes of your beloved. This song was revised in 2009 with a new bridge (in your eyes…) and a new second verse (the stillness will speak…). I’m very pleased with the results.  2009 was also the year I got married, so the song is a bit of a tribute to my wife.
