Looking up to our parents becomes something that plays a vital role in our lives. To see where or what little quirks we have from what parent. But, for some kids, that's not the case. We don't want to dig deep to find out what version of our parents we will be. Or what things did we inherit stronger? It's too scary. It will determine our lives by one look, one scenario, and one decision.

When I Look Into Your Eyes

When I look into your eyes I see

Hush don't tell, just tell another lie.

When I look into your eyes I see

the guy who said you'll learn about it later in life.


When I look into your eyes I'm scared if I'll find me inside

Cause DNA doesn't run small in size.

I see everything from point A to B.

How much pain you caused me.

To sitting on those steps waiting for you pick me up with loving hands.


To see a father who understands.

But I was hurt, over and over again.

To see a father who I always dreamed for.

But when you came up it was nothing new before.


When I see you tapping on the steering wheel

singing all the songs you grew up to

I finally catch a glimpse of the real you.

When I'm driving in my car I say damn I'm just like you

singing and tapping along.

Who knew it could be the same songs.


When I look

I see those green eyes

They are just like mine

But one of them lies

And says words that damage one heart

And that was mine.
