New Eyes

by Sarah Brindell (Piece of Mind, 2003)

I am just a wounded dreamer in a fairy tale
like an optimistic seeker on a boat without a sail
building my castle but it just keeps tumbling down
now the walls are gone and I can finally see my way out
like a baby born in flight
I am humbled by the pain, but it’s given me
New Eyes
Staring at the mirror, looking for myself
waiting for my destiny to steal me from the shelf
I was a queen on a throne, till perception came around
now the mirror’s broken I can finally take off my crown
like a blind girl finding sight
I am humbled by the pain, but it’s given me
New Eyes

solo

like a woman bathed in light,
I am humbled by the pain, but it’s given me
New Eyes
New Eyes to see the beauty
and now I know my suffering is just love in disguise
