"Looking Through Patient Eyes" as written by George Michael and Attrell Stephen Jr Cordes....
Whatever it is I do, I try to think about you.
I have a love for you that nothing hides.
Whatever it is I do, I'm always thinking of you.
I hope you look at me through patient eyes.
I've become amused.
I've become blind.
I've become what I know not breathes.
You seem illiterate to all my emotions.
I stand corrected, how well you read.
You speak the truth, you speak the me.
You fell the love I have yet to find.
I know it's there, I know it's there.
But I let the sandcastles kill my mind.
Pathetic me, I long to be you.
They think I'm close but i stand so fat.
The turbulent one sheds a turbulent tear.
I'm Mr. Love only 'cause they starve.
Oil and water, lust and sympathy.
I'll life and death my way through the sun.
Where originates all the pain that leaves.
My memory a traumatic sponge and sings to you.
Well define my love and attitude.
Open up your mind and it will sing to you.
You can always tell.
But I know remorse so well.
I left reality early due to the lack of love... reason.

Whatever I do, I try to think about you.
I seek the sympathy and I can't lie.
Whatever it is I do, I'm always thinking of you.
I hope you look at me through patient eyes.

The channel, a professional liar.
How I long to contradict those vibes.
Joni help me, I think I'm falling.
It's not the love and I quest the why.
I don't know, If I'm right, I'm right.
But if I'm wrong then show me I'm wrong.
The fear of pity is always awake.
But infinite sympathy completely gone.
It's the windows, the doors, the passageway to the truth.
Oh my god, it echoes the mind.
In total recall as wild as the deuce.
It's so deceiving is the clouded heart.
So superficial is the open wound.
I caress the infinite light.
That even at night. Overshadows the moon and sings to you.
Well, define my love, that lives with you.
Even when I die, it will still sing to you.
You can always tell if remorse has done you well...
The misconstrued my answers due to the
Lack of love...reason.

Whatever I do, I try to think about you.
I seek the sympathy and I can't lie.
Whatever it is I do, I'm always thinking of you.
I hope you look at me through patient eyes.

    General CommentThis song is about a love gone wrong. It is about a man who loves a woman so much it disturbs his soul, he wants to be like her because she is exactley what he wants to be, she knows that he has the potential to be the kind of person she knows he is, he is trying to live his life right, and wants her to know, that he is trying, and hopefully she believes he will, looking through patient eyes

    My InterpretationThis song is a pop-culture praise-and-worship song to God. Go watch the video on youtube... it takes place in a church and he's wearing a Jesus shirt.

    I've become amused = there's so much to see and do in this world. It all takes our focus off our creator.

    I've become blind = I'm not even aware how distracted I've become.

    Pathetic me, I long to be you = I want to be like Christ but I am so very VERY far off from this.

    The female vocalist (Cathy) is his authentic memory trying to remind him... and the chorus, "whatever it is I do, I try to think about you" = I'm trying to honor you (God) in every action, but it's so freakin hard because my mind... my reason... are built on sandcastles... my questing for the why, my desire to know, creates distance between us.

    He regrets it. He's sorry for it. And he's feeling so guilty about it that Jesus's "infinite sympathy" feels lost to him.

    The conundrum of living IN the World but not being OF the world... one that every Christ-follower faces. And all of us fail.

    He's basically crying out to his Godly master saying, "I'm trying to serve you. I'm trying to honor you. Please be patient with me. Be merciful with me."

    RIP, Prince Be.
