"In Her Eyes" as written by Michael Hunter Ochs, Molly Kaye, Jeffrey H Cohen and Andy Selby....
She stares through my shadow
She sees something more
Believes there's a light in me
She is sure
And her truth makes me stronger
Does she realize
I awake every morning
With her strength by my side

I am not a hero
I am not an angel
I am just a man
A man who's trying to love her
Unlike any other

In her eyes, I am

This world keeps on spinning
Only she stills my heart
She's my inspiration
She's my northern star

I don't count my possessions
But all I call mine
I will give her completely
'Til the end of all time

I am not a hero
I am not an angel
I am just a man
A man who's trying to love her
Unlike any other

In her eyes, I am

In her eyes I see the sky
And all I'll ever need
In her eyes time passes by
And she is with me

I am not a hero
I am not an angel
I am just a man
A man who's trying to love her
Unlike any other

In her eyes, I am
In her eyes, I am

    General CommentI think this song is so amazing. I think it's about how you may be just ordinary but someone else sees you as extraordinary. Kind of like that quote "You may only be one person in the world, but you may be the world to one person."

    I think he's saying that he's just a regular guy, but she believes in him and gives him so much strength and just loves him so much for who he is. And how he loves her back for loving him.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. it's just so raw, and real to me.

    I am not a hero
    I am not an angel
    I am just a man
    A man who's trying to love her
    Unlike any other

    This part is so beautiful, and real, and I love it so much.

    General CommentThis reminds me of the impression that I got from the relationship that I perceived between my uncle and his (now departed) wife. I don't think that he ever understood what she saw in him, but he knew that he became a better person because of her.

    General CommentThis song is kind-of the other side of his song "You're Still You" ..."In Her Eyes" is about somebody who is seen as a hero in another's eyes, and who does not want to disappoint that person.

    I have a question: does anybody know what time signature the song was written in? I was thinking 5/4 or 10/8? it is a strange time signature..

    General Commenti totally love this song my best friend was dating this girl and he was really down cuz he thought she didn't like him and i was so used to hearing her go on and on "ben this ben that, this reminds me of ben" but i couldnt explain it to him so i showed him this song and it totally cheered him up. there not together anymore but this song is still important to us both and it's one of the sweetest songs ever because 'in her eyes' any man can be a hero
