About When I Look Into Your Eyes
“When I Look Into Your Eyes” was written for the charming 1967 movie Doctor Dolittle, starring Rex Harrison and Samantha Eggar. Bricusse won an Academy Award for another song from this movie, “Talk To The Animals.” It’s a lovely ballad; Rex Harrison sang this song in the movie.

Lyrics

When I look in your eyes
I see the wisdom of the world in your eyes
I see the sadness of a thousand goodbyes
When I look in your eyes

And it is no surprise
To see the softness of the moon in your eyes
The gentle sparkle of the stars in the skies
When I look into your eyes

In your eyes
I see the deepness of the sea
I see the deepness of the love
The love I feel you feel for me

Autumn comes, summer dies
I see the passing of the years in your eyes
And when we part there’ll be no tears, no goodbyes
I’ll just look into your eyes

I feel the love you feel for me

Autumn comes, summer dies
I see the passing of the years in your eyes
And when we part there’ll be no tears, no goodbyes
I’ll just look into your eyes

Those eyes, so wise
So warm, so real
How I love the world your eyes reveal
