Look Within by Markus Fleischmann


Come look into my eyes

Tell me what you see

Do you see my tears or my fears?

Do you see my hurt of the passing years?

Do you see my flaws?


Can you tell I’m screaming?

Or do you see me dreaming?

I dare you

Look into my eyes and peer

Into my soul

Tell me what you see

Am I broken or am I whole?

I’ll tell you what I see

When these eyes look back at me

I see a spirit that is wild and free

I see a shell of the former me

I see a dream that shattered

Leaving nothing but tatters


But what I see doesn’t matter to me

In my eyes I see a dreamer

Do you?

Take another look

Look deeper
