"Light In Your Eyes" as written by Sameer Bhattacharya, James Culpepper, Jared Hartmann, Kirkpatrick Seals and Lacey Nicole Sturm....
Pour the wine
Light revives
Lowering walls that divide
Kings and queens yearn to seek
Love in all its mystery

When all we wanted was love
We got cut up and burned
But there's a light in your eyes
And it tells me
That god is on our side

The waning moon
Your sweet perfume
Incense for the holy ones
Secret hymns pour from your lips
Healing for this broken soul

We'd drive late
And let the music tell our fate
For me this is heaven
Drown our fears
And we may age
If we do not die today
Until then we'll let
This music be our prayers

When all we wanted was love
We got cut up and burned

But there's a light in your eyes
And it tells me
That god is on our side

And all we need now is love
We've been through enough
We can't run just 'cause we're scared
We've come this far
We're not giving up
All we need now is love
We've been through enough
We can't run just 'cause we're scared
We've come this far
We're not giving up

And all we need now is love
We've been through enough
We can't run just 'cause we're scared
We've come this far
We're not giving up
And all we need now is love
We've been through enough
We can't run just 'cause we're scared
We've come this far
We're not giving up

    General CommentI love this song so much. It shows that there's inspiration to everyone, even in someone's eyes. It's all about loving one another and finding God as your comfort and security. It inspires you to keep pressing forward no matter the hardships that you face-because you will face them. And life will disappoint you at times. No one said it would be easy. That's when you have to lean onto the light in your eyes. (:

    Song MeaningOn Twitter, Sameer, the lead guitarist, confirmed that he had written this song about his wife and how God leads their relationship. Him and his wife have been through a lot of pain over the last few years considering that April has an illness that is hard to treat.
