"My Eyes" as written by and Healy....
Deep in my heart, there's no room for crying,
But I'm trying to see your point of view
Deep in my heart, I'm afraid of dying,
I'd be lying if I said I'm not

Welcome in, welcome in,
Shame about the weather
Welcome in, welcome in,
It will come
It's a sin, it's a sin,
Where birds of a feather, are welcome to, land on you

[CHORUS]
Ya Ya Ya *2
You've got my eyes
We can see, what you'll be, you can't disguise
And either way, I will pray, you will be wise
Pretty soon you will see the tears in my eyes..

As each day goes by, it makes way for another,
We discover that we're not alone
And each day we try, the best we can to recover,
All the feelings that we left below

Welcome in, welcome in,
Shame about the weather
Welcome in, welcome in,
You will come
It's a sin, it's a sin,
Where birds of a feather, are welcome to, land on you

[CHORUS]
Ya Ya Ya *2
You've got my eyes
We can see, what you'll be, you can't disguise
And either way, I will pray, you will be wise
Pretty soon you will see the tears in my eyes..

Welcome in, welcome in,
Shame about the weather
Welcome in, welcome in,
You will come
It's a sin, it's a sin,
Where birds of a feather, are welcome to, land on you...

[CHORUS]
Ya Ya Ya *2
You've got my eyes
We can see, what you'll be, you can't disguise
And either way, I will pray, you will be wise
Pretty soon you will see the tears in my eyes.. *3

    General CommentIm pretty sure this is about the lead singer's child. It's about how he and his wife could see him grow in the uterus "We can see, what you'll be, you can't disguise"

    and how he will see tears in his father's eyes when he is born "Pretty soon you will see the tears in my eyes"

    General Commentthis is the sweetest lyric on earth!

    yeah definetely for his growing child.


    love when it says shame about the weather, cause its always raining there where he lives, and he thinks his child deserves sun and rainbows.

    General CommentI don't think when he says, "Shame about the weather," that he's merely talking about the rain in the UK. I think he means it metaphorically to refer to the state of the world-- politics, environment, etc. As if to say, "Welcome to the world. Sorry we've messed it up so much, but we're glad you're here."

    General Commentto restless hearts:
    "It's a sin, it's a sin, where birds of a feather, are welcome to, land on you". I think hes trying to interpret that his child shares his personal traits/genetics. Its a sin because he might not want his child to share and deal with the same hardships and struggles that he went through that might have been self-distructive from his own personality and so on.
