The Dream Held In Your Eyes (Caregiver)    (words and music by Bill Pere)

You ask me when I look at you , what do I see ?
You ask me why I give you all the love I give for free
If I could reach beyond the fears that shadow my replies
You'd see I'm trying to be the answer to the dream held in your eyes…

When I see that dream held in your eyes
Wishing your life was just a play you could revise
Looking for some who could love you, with a life to share
Hoping when you need a friend, someone would be there
And as you're asking all those questions, all life's how's and why's
You look for answers laced with love instead of lies
I see that dream held in your eyes….

You ask me if I still love you in the times we disagree
Even then, I'd give you all the world, but all I've got to give is me…
If you could see behind the smile I use as my disguise
You'd see I'm trying to be the answer to the dream held in your eyes…

When I see that dream held in your eyes
Wishing your life was just a play you could revise
Looking for some who could love you, with a life to share
Hoping when you need a friend, someone would be there
And as you're asking all those questions, all life's how's and why's
You look for answers laced with love instead of lies
I see that dream held in your eyes….

You ask me to remember you if the years split us apart
But it's me who really hopes that I'll live ever in your heart
If you knew the things I wish for you, you'd realize
I'm just trying to be the answer to the dream held in your eyes…

When I see that dream held in your eyes
Wishing your life was just a play you could revise
Looking for some who could love you, with a life to share
Hoping when you need a friend, someone would be there
And as you're asking all those questions, all life's how's and why's
You look for answers laced with love instead of lies
I see that dream held in your eyes….
I see that dream held in your eyes….
