Alec Benjamin - My Mother's Eyes Lyrics




I can't believe you love me after all the things I've done
I think I've been the devil since the day that I turned one
Like when I stole your money just to buy a pack of gum
I know it wasn't funny, can't believe I was so dumb
I blame it on my age but even now I'm not so young
I'm still stuck in my ways I can't believe what I've become
Somehow you feel the same I guess it's motherly love
Motherly love

Wish I could find the peace in me
See the good things that you see
It's not that easy

But if I saw me through your eyes
Maybe I could find a way
To forgive all of the lies
And the stupid things I say
And if I could realize
That it's your blood that I bleed
Maybe I could love myself
Like the way that you love me
If I saw me through your eyes
Your eyes
Through your eyes
Through my mothers eyes

I can't believe you love me after all the things I did
Like when I said I hated you when we were in Madrid
Like when I didn't answer you cause I was on the road
But you cooked my favorite dinner for me right when I got home
I blame it on my stress cause I've been feeling so high strung
I'm looking for excuses and I know that isn't one
Somehow you feel the same I guess that's motherly love
Motherly love

Wish I could find the peace in me
To see the good things that you see
It's not that easy

But if I saw me through your eyes
Maybe I could find a way
To forgive all of the lies
And the stupid things I say
And if I could realize
That it's your blood that I bleed
Maybe I could love myself
Like the way that you love me
If I saw me through your eyes
Your eyes
Through your eyes
Through my mothers eyes
Through my mothers eyes
Through my mothers eyes
Through my mothers eyes

But if I saw me through your eyes
Maybe I could find a way
To forgive all of the lies
And the stupid things I say
And if I could realize
That it's your blood that I bleed
Maybe I could love myself
Like the way that you love me
If I saw me through your eyes
Your eyes
Through your eyes
Through my mothers eyes

Alec Benjamin My Mother's Eyes Comments
  1. Alexander Villafañe

    I can hear the song tousaunds of times and i cry like a baby

  2. Lunaaa•

    My mom blames me in everything since my dad died. She hates me, but I know there's this love just for me hidden in her. I love her, I can't risk loosing her.. She's the last one here for me. I love her even though she does many bad things to me.. Love you mom ❤

    Socorro Gutierrez

    My mom left me :/

    Lunaaa•

    @Socorro Gutierrez I guess we're kind of the same.. I have no parents that takes care of me now.. My mom goes to bars everyday and I just see her quite often :> And I'm sorry about it, Just always pray to God and be beside him and everything would be alright

  3. Bai Dude

    Good song

  4. Bai Dude

    Gay song

  5. Yoyo chan

    This could also be titled God's eyes...through God's eyes...We aren't the unlovable creatures we act as...We are just ourselves. We are made just as we are, no mistakes and we are loved.

  6. Just Jenel

    This is one of the very few songs that actually has a wholesome meaning. It's original, it's about love..but about your mothers love. I love this song.
    I wanna sing this too my mom on mothers day. Should I???

  7. Slytherin Serverus Snape

    "And maybe i could love—"

    An ad pops up

    " TACOS"

    —mah face— O—O

  8. Cinnamon_Roll _Lover

    I wish I could love my mom like she loves me. thanks Alec this is the first song I've found that explains my mother and mine relationship. I'm such a terrible kid.

  9. wajeeha alam

    I cried like a baby😢😢❤

  10. GachaWolfie19 masters

    Omg my fav song

  11. xVivi

    Is it just me or I heard "a pack of cum" instead of "a pack of gum"

  12. D3AD Z0N3

    Honestly this song says it all. I say this because I am a very stubborn and well...angry person. I get angry quickly and I am not proud of it. Sadly it something I just have to work on. Yet sometimes I just get mad and then I get mad at myself and I start listing things that are wrong with me and etc. it’s a downward spiral and I usually don’t like to express that side of me to anyone because I have a mentality where I think people will see me as weak or an attention seeker. I guess you could say that in some ways I basically hate myself or am even depressed in some ways but then I think about it and I have a loving mother and father. But I am going to focus on my mom here real quick, I know she loves me but even at times I forget that and hate it when she compares me to her younger self and what she had to do and her situations. I don’t know why, it irks me and I think it’s because in my eyes she isn’t taking in to the fact that I am a different person from her even if we’re blood related. I find myself to be much more like my dad, which can be bad in some aspects since we both can be hot-headed and stubborn though i believe my mom looks past that. She makes me laugh and I talk with her from time to time and she wants to include in stuff ( mostly because I’m the type of person to kind of....isolate myself away from people which I kinda don’t get because I hate the idea of being alone but I always like to be separate for some reason though I think it has less to do with physically being alone and mentally. ) like for example today she told me to come watch TV with her which may seem simple but it got me to with her doing something even if it’s just watching a screen with her. I appreciate my mother, I do and I love her but the way she somehow manages to love me even when I’m being difficult is....amazing? Especially since I feel I would hate myself in my mother’s eyes. But then I guess I’m just being critical of myself? I dunno anyway...I just wanted to vent...sorry 😅

  13. lil arabia

    Pls do 2 mill special song❤❤❤

  14. avery

    How is it possible for someone to make such beautiful music? Alec has one of the best talents to be given, yet he is not appreciated enough. Everyone around us are all making music about breakups and drugs and whatnot. Alec is able to create songs and still relate to the hardship of life, but in a more pleasant way. A way that everybody should see. He doesn't get enough recognition as he should. Alec Benjamin is by far, one of the most amazing artists that I have ever come across. Who else agrees?

  15. Megawati Apoteker

    Very good

  16. Röśę Tēã

    Am I the only one that can’t find it on Spotify

  17. Tyson Cabrera

  20. Luna.Midnight

    Bruh this hurts me emotionally because I’ve cut myself and lied about it being the cats.. a-and.. um.. I’ve lied to her so much, been rude to her yet she still loves me..

    (A few days later I told her about my depression because the weight of the lie got to me to much)

  21. Jayden Jesus

    im gonna tat My mothers name with baby blue angel wings she died last year

  22. Epie Here At Last

    A Benjamin songs always tell abt something in my family. It's awesome

  23. Tiri playzz

    Is Alec Benjamin the next Billie Eilish?

  24. Kultyre

    Maybe it’s just me being emotional but this got me in my deep feelings real bad had to cry

  25. cristabelization

  34. DerpyBrick

    Aaaaa I'm sending this to my mum

  35. 50 subs with No videos?

    This song makes me really sad because it’s true I was taken away from. My mum when I was little and I always blamed her and when I got back and living with her again I treated her like shit I was rude I wasn’t thankful for what I had I never spent time with her I’d lock myself away and now years later I’m realising how much that I treated her like shit and how rude I was and I’m forever angry at myself because she never stoped loving me she never stoped believing in me she never stoped being nice to me don’t take people for granted and give your mum or whoever looked or looks after u and give them a big long hug saying how thankful you are because one day they will be gone

  36. M E

    I love you and I miss you mom...

  37. Emma Skov

    I'm still listening to these songs after 1 and a half year... Anyone else?

  38. Mya Harrington

    😭😭

  39. Wolfalynn

    Welp, guess I'm going to be crying tonight.

  40. It'sLuna

    This song helped me get trough a break up, i stayed with her even after we broke up, kept talking to her and always tried to be there for her. She couldn't forgive herself for everything she did, didn't know what to do and then one day she sent me this song and told me that's what your love is. I knew i couldn't show her how i see her but i always tried to show her with my actions and words. I will forever be thankful to alec and this song that he brought my happiness back to me ♡

  41. gachasalsa artist

    I love my mom and I love how he says that he blames his mom but he still loves her no matter what and that he knows that your mom will madder about you no matter what

  49. Lunar-Dragon

    If anyone knows what dear Evan Hansen is. I'm on my playlist and disappear played right before this and now I'm crying. FUN TIMES.

  50. Lily Mark

    Ok. It's uncanny that Alec Benjamin can describe such powerful meanings through some songs.

  51. I LOAF BREAD

    This goes out to my mother: Hey mom it's me I know you are disappointed in me. But just know that I love you so so much I never meant to hurt you. I know you probably hate me. It's ok I understand it's my fault I know. I didn't mean it when I said I hated you all those times. It's not true. I wish I could see me through your eyes so I could love myself like you love me. No wonder dad left, he even told me he left because of me. So it wasn't your fault. I know your gonna cry when I leave. I know you cried when I tried to commit suicide, it wasn't your fault it's just people's fault for treating me badly calling me fat,ugly,worthless,disgusting and a whole world of other things but when I stopped eating they called me "Anna girl"( Anna girl means anorexic girl) then my crush called me fat that day so I took all those pills and cut myself. It was never your fault. There was so many things leading up to it, but it was you who always helped me feel better after a long day of school. You were always there for me but I still just felt so empty,depressed,fat,ugly,worthless,disgusting I just wanted the pain to end and I'm sorry you had to see me like that. I know it was the wrong thing to do. I'm so exhausted and tired,I'm just tired of school,tired people tired everybody. But never tired of you I will always love you. even if I'm not here just look at the moon and picture us under the stars like the good old days. Ps. Don't Mourn Me be happy that my pain is over with and I won't hurt anymore. Love you bye mommy...❤💔

    Alexis Lorca

    Gg F for mom

  52. Ava Hicks

    Guys dont be rude to your moms she birthed you and she deserves better than you being rude to her she feels like she failed as a mother when you get mad her and talk crap to her face. So please dont be ride to your moms. Enjoy your time with her you only have one mom so take advantage of that. Love her while shes here❤❤❤

  53. Miss Z Z

    I cried to this because it made me realize how we take our moms for granted. START RESPECTING YOUR MOTHERS NOOOOOW!!!!!

  54. Dumplin

    Alec Benjamin is the only way I can get through my life without trying to kill myself

  55. Asriel Dreemurr

    Just want to put it out there. A mother is not defined by blood or DNA. Neither is family. But they are the ones who are metrnal figures and who will always be there for you. Blood and DNA is not the thickest bond out there. Those bonds that are thicker than blood are family. Whether biologically or not.

  56. Itz_ DaWolf

    I also think why my mon loves me after all the things I've done.

  57. jenny Djembo

    wonderful

  96. Puppys_ Gacha

    This Is my biggest fear: I'm scared if I was on a plane and the plane crashed down with no home food or water and my mother died..me and my sister would suffer and would walk for hours and my sister is hungry and thirsty and I have nothing and still haven't found a town to live with somebody without our mother and I would cry everyday and regret what I said in my mind I was just so stressed and wasn't thinking straight and don't know what I have gotten myself Into..if I haven't lived they will have a good life but if it was only my sister and my mother and mother died what will happen to my sister?: I was so heartbroken when I thought of that and after school I gave my mother a hug and cried when I got home I hugged my sister and tried to be a good daughter and take care of my family and Thinking that I will never go on a plane and mother will never leave us...

  97. Julissa Gonzalez

    welp my old favorite song is mad bc after listening to this i have a new favorite

  98. Diri Ruh

    My mother is mentally sick, she is schizophrenic
    . All I know is that she got this ilness when she got pregnant to me. My older sister can't even remember the days she was fine and normal. She (my sister) started to raise me like a mother when she was just 4. She had to leave her childhood when she was just 4. But she didn't say anything. Mom would blame her for everything and she would just say ''Okay'' but when I was a kid, I didn't know anything. I hated my mother, I was stupid. I was ashamed of her. When there's an event in school with kid's mothers I wouldn't invite her and I would just sit in the corner watch the other kids having fun with their mothers and I would cry sometimes. And my mom was just like a little kid, when I broke her heart, she would cry and say ''Apologize! You're mean''. I would feel sad but I wouldn't hug her or say ''I'm sorry.'' I was really mean like she said. I know I was just a kid but still. And after our fights she would come like nothing happened and cook my favourite dinner. She would bake cookies even if she can't. She doesn't really know how to cook or bake. She would try, for me. I hate myself. I wish I could timetravel and slap myself in the face. I got myself sick too. Karma is a bitch I guess. Not like my mother, different. But I litteraly fucked up big time.
    She's illness got worse by time. Now she doesn't hug me or she doesn't even know that I'm her child. Her mind is compeletly gone. But still she's with me. There's people out there that doesn't even have a mother or lost their mothers. I'm thankful that I have her. This song makes me cry. But from the inside. Because I have a little sister who is just a little kid. And she needs a strong, loving mother. My father can't be a mother figure so I'm taking the role. I'm her mother. Just like my older sister, I left everything aside. If she saw me crying, she would cry too. I have to be strong, because I'm her mother
    I was depressed for a long time, I just wanted to spill everything. No one knows me in this comment section, it's just me and my depression. Normally I wouldn't even open my mouth and talk about the things I'm living through to my older sister, to my father or to the psychiatrist
    s. I would have a panic attack and cry.
    I wish I could thank Alec Benjamin, he's just too perfect. When I'm listening to most of his songs, it feels like I'm looking at my reflection in the mirror.
