about

"Through His Eyes" is my first ever original song, which draws inspiration from the wonderful animated series Steven Universe. The song is from Pearl's point of view, and is about her relationship with Rose Quartz and the complicated feelings that she has toward Steven because of it.

lyrics

Your beauty shone more brightly than a dying star
Your bravery more powerful than ten quasars
Can you blame me now for all the hours I grieve?
I always thought that you would never leave

You were a burst of light
A beacon of rebirth
I fought right by your side
Defending planet Earth
But when I see him there
It makes me want to cry
Wond'ring if you see me through his eyes

Steven is a gem
Steven is a joy
Steven tries so hard
For such a little boy
Steven's gem contains such power when it glows
Steven's wonderful
But Steven is not Rose

In your absence we have done the best we can
To raise him as our own according to your plan
I know it's not his fault, and I have crippling shame
But sometimes I feel he's the one to blame

Ohhhh...

Please forgive me, Rose
I know I'm a disgrace
I try so hard to care for Steven in your place
Now all that I can do
Is teach him what he's worth
I promise Steven will protect your Earth

We are a family now
We will honor your grace
We'll stick together like titanium in space
I know you're part of him
His gem preserves your name
But deep down I know it's just not the same

Rose, if you're listening now
I have just this to say
I don't deserve to, but
I'll guide him anyway
I will not let you down
Through all the lows and highs
I hope that you will see me through his eyes
