"There's holes in the sky where my eyes used to be" - Rob White




"There's holes in the sky where my eyes used to be" - Rob White


There's holes in the sky where my eyes used to be
This was not what I had expected to see
When I felt the divine whisper deep truth to me
When I thought that truth would soon set the world free
I'd share those sweet whispers and they would agree
Surely no man would turn away from this plea
But soon I would see
As time and heart faded
To dusty debris
That there was one deaf man
And that one man was me

So now I look down
And see scars on my knee
Where I spent so much time
Beneath old sturdy tree
Kneeling and dreaming
Of glory to be
Of woman and man united and free
Of stars once scattered
Brought together to see
That no light shines brighter
Than the brilliance of "we"

I knew all this once
Now it's harder to see
'Cause there's holes in the sky where my eyes used to be
