Shining Eyes

This breath takeing song from Red's Parents' Choice "Gold" Award-winning CD, "Hello World", looks past the surface features of our size, shape, color, hair, etc. and focuses on the light that shines from our eyes.  It is a deeply affirming message that all children need to hear.

Shining Eyes

I've looked into a million faces
I've seen your smiles, I've seen your frowns
Different colors, all different ages
Right side up and upside down
Each one's been a thing of beauty
Different styles of composition
Let me tell you what I remember
Most of all from my position

Your shining eyes... like rays of sunlight that brighten up the skies
Your shining eyes... my heart remembers when I've seen your shining eyes

It's not the big or the little noses
Whether you chin's sticking in or out
The ebony tones of the blush of roses
Hair straight down or curled about
It's not about whether you have a dimple
Whether your ears grow big or small
Whether your clothes are stylish or simple
The only thing that I recall... are

Your shining eyes... like rays of sunlight that brighten up the skies
Your shining eyes... my heart remembers when I've seen your shining eyes

They're the sunrise, the moonglow
They're the fresh breath of spring
They're alive with the beauty that flows through everything
The whole world seems to sing in your...

Your shining eyes...
Your shining eyes...

Your shining eyes... like rays of sunlight that brighten up the skies
Your shining eyes... my heart remembers when I've seen your shining eyes
