MY SISTER'S EYES


I N S P I R A T I O N

I wrote My Sister's Eyes after reading a book called the Girls (by Lori Larsen). The book viewed life through the eyes of a girl who was joined to her sister. She was a craniopagiously linked, conjoined twin (siamese). Due to the nature of the join, her one regret was that she was tragically never able to look into her sister's eyes.

My Sister's Eyes

Is it just the way it is? Is there nothing I can do?

Why should one and one together always equal two?

How can these things happen? How can it be so?

Maybe there's no answers and I'm never meant to know.

Chorus

I cannot think it selfish and if such things could be,

I would only ever want to live a thousand times as me.

As the clouds form in the distance, then they roll across the skies,

I'd give my world for once to look into my sister's eyes.


I have had my share of laughter. Sometimes I want to cry.

Sometimes I get so angry. Sometimes I just get by.

It's so easy to get lonely and to lose a sense of trust.

I wasn't born to follow but sometimes it seems I must.


It's a twist and it's a turn and it's a tangle to the heart,

Not knowing where she finishes, not knowing where I start,

Or where an idea comes from or if a thought is mine,

With every little tingle that travels down my spine.
