Story

Every Child's Eyes was inspired by a true story and by my long-time volunteer involvement with CASA - both at the California CASA Association, and prior to that at Marin Marin Advocates for Children which houses the Marin CASA program, one of 45 county programs that California CASA serves.

I am thankful to my co-writer, Maurice Byrne, and to California CASA for for selecting Every Child's Eyes as the song to be used in a music video for CASA volunteer recruitment and fund-raising purposes in California so that more children can be served by this profound organization.

If you are interested in learning more about CASA, making a donation, or in being referred to a program in your area, please contact California CASA at (800) 214-CASA or at staff@californiacasa.org .

Lyrics

Every Child's Eyes

 

I drive a bus for Central Valley Schools

The children know to follow all the rules

The shy kids sit in front, the loud ones in the back

Good kids from the first one to the last

Jason's from the new group foster home

His mom's in rehab and his dad he's never known

He waves when I pull up, and when I open the door

We talk about snakes and dinosaurs

 

          There's a light in Every Child's Eyes

          With smiles that can't be denied

          An excitement for life and a hope that can't die

          There's a light in Every Child's Eyes

 

A CASA volunteer wanted to meet

He said the boy's mom was back out on the street

I'm someone that Jason says he loves

Now my wife and I will never give him up

 

          There's a light in Every Child's Eyes

          With smiles that can't be denied

          An excitement for life and a hope that can't die

          There's a light in Every Child's Eyes

 

When children can't rely on grown-ups who should be there

It's up to you and me to be the ones who care

 

          To keep a Light in Every Child's Eyes

          With smiles that can't be denied

          An excitement for life and a hope that can't die

          There's a light in Every Child's Eyes

 

A light in Every Child's Eyes

A light in Every Child's Eyes
