Music Monday: When You Look Me In the Eyes by the Jonas Brothers

This Music Monday post is for London and Maddie, who adore the Jonas Brothers... but the inspiration for my choice was actually a firm handshake this afternoon from the teenage brother of one of Maddie's friends. As a parent of two girls, now 8 and 9, I've come to admire other parents who have raised respectful, confident teenagers...instead of the surly kind who won't look adults in the eye. Up north in the Roxiticus Valley, we have three sisters who babysit for London and Maddie, and they are all so poised and responsible, ready for college or job interviews or whatever opportunities life has to offer....same goes for the teenage brothers of a couple of London and Maddie's friends. So, while the Jonas Brothers intended this one as a mushy love song, I've chosen it to honor the cool teenagers in our lives.





If the heart is always searching,
Can you ever find a home?
I've been looking for that someone,
I'll never make it on my own.
Dreams can't take the place of loving you,
There's gotta be a million reasons why it's true

When you look me in the eyes,
And tell me that you love me.
Everything's alright,
When you're right here by my side.
When you look me in the eyes,
I catch a glimpse of heaven.
I find my paradise,
When you look me in the eyes.

How long will I be waiting,
To be with you again
Gonna tell you that I love you,
In the best way that I can.
I can't take a day without you here,
You're the light that makes my darkness disappear.

When you look me in the eyes,
And tell me that you love me.
Everything's alright,
When you're right here by my side.
When you look me in the eyes,
I catch a glimpse of heaven.
I find my paradise,
When you look me in the eyes.

More and more, I start to realize,
I can reach my tomorrow,
I can hold my head high,
And it's all because you're by my side.

When you look me in the eyes,
And tell me that you love me.
Everything's alright,
When you're right here by my side.
When I hold you in my arms
I know that it's forever
I just gotta let you know
I never wanna let you go

Cause when you look me in the eyes.

And tell me that you love me.
Everything's alright,
When you're right here by my side.
When you look me in the eyes,
I catch a glimpse of heaven.
I find my paradise,
When you look me in the eyes.
