Two Little Pictures of Me

When I look in your eyes I see two little pictures of me
When I look in your eyes I see two little pictures of me

I think you look like me
I think you smile like me
I think you think like me
I think you like like me
When I look in your eyes
I see just what I wanted to see
When I look in your eyes
I see two little pictures of me

1977. Middle School. A van of youth group kids going to summer camp. She had this string bikini top and one side accidentally came untied and fell down a minute and my brain froze and you know everything happens for a reason so I knew she must be The One!

Now I can see the future
I know our destiny
You and I together forever happily…

She lived way out in the country so she didn’t get to youth group very often. I spent years trying to find her house on my bike just to ride by casually. But as time went on, I never did find her house, and she actually turned out to be kind of boring. I mean, she didn’t even dress up for Halloween. What’s up with that?

When I look in your eyes I don’t see what I wanted to
When I look in your eyes I see two little pictures of you

1981! High School. New van, new camp, new girl. And this time, she was definitely the One. She came to youth group all the time and was friends with my sister so we had a ton of shared experiences and we talked on the phone and best of all she had a part time job at a D&D store!

When I look in your eyes I see just what I wanted to see
When I look in your eyes I see two little pictures of me
