Her Eyes Were Watching God

To prey upon a kind and generous heart
To turn away from and leave a mark
To go too far just to make youself feel better
But you could not steal her song

Her eyes were watching god
Never felt any pain at all
From gravel to gold she walks
She’s not long for this world
She’s not long for this

To plant the smallest seed
That bears the bitterest fruit
To still believe the sweetest truth
Hold up the lie till the sun shines through it

Don’t you let them steal your song

Your eyes are watching god
No need to feel any shame at all
From gravel to gold we walk
You’re not long for this world
You’re not long for this

Moving towards the light
Peace follows the fight

Our eyes are watching god
No need to feel any pain at all
From gravel to gold we walk
We’re not long for this world
We’re not long for this…
