Carrie tested me on a long distance phone call. What color are my eyes? I didn?t know and vowed to write a song about them. Later, she told me she loved me for the first time as I saw the reflection of the Grand Canyon in her eyes. I had the song I needed.


When we first met<br />
I saw answers to questions that I dare not ask yet<br />
And you were so silent<br />
As if all the hopes of my happiness hid behind<br />
One of your smiles<br />
And every kiss you kept from me dried my lips with desire<br />
The desert would bring us together in time<br />
<br />
Chorus<br />
A blue eyed canyon&nbsp;<br />
No other wonder compares to this view<br />
A blue eyed canyon<br />
Staring straight at me saying I love you<br />
Each ray of sunlight painting the desert makes you want to fly<br />
I look at you and see wide open skies<br />
Come on let's fly<br />
<br />
A life on the road<br />
Lead me to homeless hotel rooms and phone calls<br />
And I long to hold you<br />
At last I held your hand at Grand Canyon <br />
And made my wishes<br />
You plucked a lost eyelash right out &nbsp;of my eye with tender kisses<br />
And told me you loved me for the first time<br />
<br />
Chorus<br />
<br />
We all have wings<br />
We may not know 'til we stand on the edge<br />
A lifetime behind us<br />
And as I look down from the stage I see empty eyes<br />
Every night<br />
For all my dreams would lead to dark skies if you're not by my side<br />
For love is the greatest dream of my life<br />
<br />
Chorus<br />
<br />
Like the eagles love the sky<br />
Like the ripples love the rain<br />
Three words were all she said<br />
I love you (x 5)<br />
