If only I could see,
I could tell night and day apart,
I could find you amongst the crowd,
To hold your hands and never let go.

If only I could see,
I could drive you around the world,
I could surprise you from behind,
To hug you tight and never let go.

If only I could see,
May be my life would be different,
May be what I want, what I like and what I love,
Won't be the same.

The darkness in front of my eyes is not really darkness,
What is the white that you speak of?
The blue sky that people talk about,
Is a cloud in my memories.

I face straight towards you,
Yet I could see nothing.
Did God cover my eyes with a curtain,
and forgot to remove it?

You are my eyes,
Lead me through the changing seasons.
You are my eyes,
Lead me past the endless crowds.
You are my eyes,
Lead me into the vast ocean of books.
Because you are my eyes,
I saw the world,
right in front of my eyes.
