Eyes Like Yours Lyrics

by Shakira

Oh, you know I have seen
A sky without sun, a man with no nation
Saints, captive in chains
A song with no name for lack of imagination

(Y'allah hey! Ya hey! Y'allah hey!)
And I have seen darker than ebony
(Y'allah hey! Ya hey! Y'allah hey!)
And now it seems that I without your eyes could never be

My one desire, all I aspire
Is in your eyes forever to live
Traveled all over the seven oceans
There is nothing that I wouldn't give

Came from Bahrain until Beirut
Looking for someone comparing to you
Tearing down windows and doors
And I could not find eyes like yours

Rabboussama'i fikarraja'i
Fi ainaiha ara hayati
Ati ilaika min haza alkauni
Arjouka labbi labbi nidai

Came from Bahrain until Beirut
Looking for someone comparing to you
Tearing down windows and doors
And I could not find eyes like yours

Oh, you know I have seen
A woman of means in rags and begging for pleasure
Crossed a river of salt
Just after I rode a ship that sunk in the desert

(Y'allah hey! Ya hey! Y'allah hey!)
And I have seen darker than ebony
(Y'allah hey! Ya hey! Y'allah hey!)
And now it seems that I without your eyes could never be

My one desire, all I aspire
Is in your eyes forever to live
Traveled all over the seven oceans
There is nothing that I wouldn't give

Came from Bahrain until Beirut
Looking for someone comparing to you
Tearing down windows and doors
And I could not find eyes like yours

Rabboussama'i fikarraja'i
Fi ainaiha ara hayati
Ati ilaika min haza alkauni
Arjouka labbi labbi nidai

Came from Bahrain until Beirut
Looking for someone comparing to you
Tearing down windows and doors
And I could not find eyes like yours

Rabboussama'i fikarraja'i
Fi ainaiha ara hayati
Ati ilaika min haza alkauni
Arjouka labbi labbi nidai

Ga'a min Bahrain ila Beirut
Looking for someone comparing to you
Tearing down windows and doors
And I could not find eyes like yours

My one desire, all I aspire
Is in your eyes forever to live
Traveled all over the seven oceans
There is nothing that I wouldn't give

Came from Bahrain until Beirut
Looking for someone comparing to you
Tearing down windows and doors
And I could not find eyes like yours
