Lyrics

Eyes of the Buddha

Namaste
say the children out playing
hand-built swing set rocking in the breeze

Namaste
say the women out praying
as you pass by a temple on a side street

Shining eyes, black as coal
bright as the sun
the eyes of the Buddha in everyone

Namaste
in the wagging talks of dogs
all around the dusty streets of Kathmandu

Namaste
on the lips of all the pilgrims
climbing countless stairs to temple Swayambhu

Shining eyes, black as coal
bright as the sun
the eyes of the Buddha in everyone

Namaste
says the man delivering eggs
stacked so high his bicycle is bending

Namaste
says the cop directing traffic
she looks tough even as she smiles

Shining eyes, black as coal
bright as the sun
the eyes of the Buddha in everyone

Namaste
underneath the bodhi tree
tying strings attached to fragile wishes

Namaste
says the woman in the morning
kneeling in the dust to wash her dishes

Shining eyes, black as coal
bright as the sun
the eyes of the Buddha in everyone
