'Why Can't You See' ft Nathan Nasby

'Why Can't You See' is partly drawn from my own life experiences, and partly from my endless observing of others - the same as all writers I suppose...
It's about the longing and helplessness that surrounds someone who loves another so much, but who's love is invisible and isn't reciprocated.  Unrequited love at it's most painful.
It is a collaboration between Nathan Nasby and myself.  When I gave Nathan the lyrics, I did not expect the song that came back to me.  Nathan is an extremely talented musician, with the most sublime, yet strong, voice, and composing skills second to none.  I was blown away with the beauty of his music.

LYRICS
Verse 1
I watch you sit and stare
Listless eyes chasing rainbows
As the wind combs your hair, just a little
I know your heart doesn't see
Me sitting here so near, so near
Chorus
Why can't you see my love for you
Why can't you feel as I do
My heart is crying out for answers
My soul is crying out for love
Why can't you see my love.... for you
Verse 2
I talk by touching gently
With my heart and my eyes
And the sun falls on you, just a little
And while I wait for you
To see just how I feel, I feel
Chorus
Why can't you see my love for you
Why can't you feel as I do
My heart is crying out for answers
My soul is crying out for love
Why can't you see my love.... for you
