What Only Love Can See

Lyrics: Donna Jean Godchaux-MacKay, Will McFarlane
Music: Donna Jean Godchaux-MacKay, Will McFarlane

Sunrise, and the night gives in to day
The morning light
With eyes that can see the dawn arrive
With pure delight
Can I comprehend the way that the wind
Gathers up with a start and lets go at the end?

Can I see what only love can see
And abandon everything?
Can I fly, high as an eagle's wing?
Oh, it's where I long to be
Seeing what love can see
What only love can see

Sundown, and the shadows play with light
In evening shades
Look up at the twinkling of a star
As twilight fades
And witness a view, majestic and true
As the earth disappears and the heavens shine through

If we see what only love can see
In the face of everything
It's a song that every heart can sing
In perfect harmony
Seeing what love can see
What only love can see

I know it's the way it should be
Deep down in my soul I see
What only love can see

Seeing what love can see
What only love can see

I can see what only love can see
And abandon everything
We can fly, high as an eagle's wing?
Oh, it's where we ought to be
What if the world could see
What only love can see?

I can see what only love can see
And abandon everything
We can fly, high as an eagle's wing?
Oh, it's where we ought to be
Seeing what love can see
