🎙The Weeknd y Kenny G In Your Eyes

USA | 2020

  • The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye) is into 80s music, a passion that we share 😄, so he knows well what Kenny G is capable of with his sax. That’s why he texted Kenny to ask him to play the song together. Kenny G didn’t know the song, but he explained to Variety magazine that when he listen to it, he thought:

Okay, this sounds right up my alley, I know how to play this type of groove.

  • In Your Eyes” belongs to The Weeknd’s last and chart-breaking album, ‘After Hours’. It includes a sax line toward the end of the song, which is fairly good in itself, but The Weeknd wanted Kenny G to do something special and wrote him “Do whatever you think with the sax”. So did Kenny G and the result is spectacular.
  • In fact, The Weeknd liked Kenny G’s version so much that he asked him to also do an intro (song entry) for this ‘Vevo Official Live Performance‘:

  • In Your Eyes” is a unique song for The Weeknd, as he also told Variety:

When you look deeper into the song, it’s more complex than it seems. It’s basically about two people who are in love with each other who are just fucking each other over. The first verse is from [one] perspective and the second is from the other perspective.

It’s like the way people think the Police’s “Every Breath You Take” is a love song, and it’s not at all.

And I love that, that’s how I feel about a lot of Prince and Michael [Jackson]’s music too. This is deeper, but you wanna dance to it and make love to it. That’s the trick of it.

  • The Weeknd made another remix of ‘In Your Eyes’ with Doja Cat.
  • By the way, we have included ‘In Your Eyes‘ lyrics and the translation into Spanish below, but first, don’t miss the original video for the song, because it will surely move you. I don’t want to spoil it much, so I’ll just say that The Weeknd is headless.

THE WEEKND 'IN YOUR EYES' Lyrics in English

Oh, yeah
I just pretend that I’m in the dark
I don’t regret ’cause my heart can’t take a loss
I’d rather be so oblivious
I’d rather be with you

When it’s said, when it’s done, yeah
I don’t ever wanna know
I can tell what you done, yeah
When I look at you

In your eyes
I see there’s something burning inside you
Oh, inside you
In your eyes
I know it hurts to smile but you try to
Oh, you try to

You always try to hide the pain
You always know just what to say
I always look the other way
I’m blind, I’m blind
In your eyes, you lie, but I don’t let it define you
Oh, define you

I tried to find love
In someone else too many times
But I hope you know I mean it (mean it)
When I tell you you’re the one that was on my mind, oh

When it’s said, when it’s done, yeah
I would never let you know (let you know)
I’m ashamed of what I’ve done, yeah
When I look at you

In your eyes (your eyes)
I see there’s something burning inside you (inside you)
Oh, inside you (oh, inside you)
In your eyes
I know it hurts to smile but you try to (but you try to)
Oh, you try to (I try to)

You always try to hide the pain (oh, oh)
You always know just what to say (oh, dear)
I always look the other way
I’m blind, I’m blind
In your eyes, you lie, but I don’t let it define you (hey)
Oh, define you

In your eyes
I see there’s something burning inside you
Oh, inside you
You always try to hide the pain
You always know just what to say
I always look the other way
I’m blind, I’m blind
In your eyes, you lie, but I don’t let it define you
Oh, define you

THE WEEKND 'IN YOUR EYES' Lyrics in Spanish

Oh, si
Solo finjo que estoy en la oscuridad
No me arrepiento porque mi corazón no puede soportar una pérdida
Prefiero estar tan ajeno
prefiero estar contigo

Cuando se dice, cuando se hace, si
Nunca quiero saberlo
Sé lo has hecho, si
Cuando te miro

En tus ojos
Veo que hay algo ardiendo dentro de ti
Oh, dentro de ti
En tus ojos
Sé que duele sonreír pero lo intentas
Oh, lo intentas

Siempre tratas de esconder el dolor
Siempre sabes exactamente que decir
Yo siempre miro para otro lado
Estoy ciego, estoy ciego
En tus ojos, mientes, pero no dejo que eso te defina
Oh, te defina

Traté de encontrar el amor
En otra persona demasiadas veces
Pero espero que sepas que lo digo en serio (en serio)
Cuando te digo que eras la que estaba en mi mente, oh

Cuando se dice, cuando se hace, si
Nunca te lo haría saber (te lo haría saber)
Me avergüenzo de lo que he hecho, si
Cuando yo te miro

En tus ojos (tus ojos)
Veo que hay algo ardiendo dentro de ti (dentro de ti)
Oh, dentro de ti (oh, dentro de ti)
En tus ojos
Sé que duele sonreír pero lo intentas (pero lo intentas)
Oh, lo intentas (yo lo intento)

Siempre tratas de esconder el dolor (oh, oh)
Siempre sabes que decir (oh, cariño)
Yo siempre miro para otro lado
Estoy ciego, estoy ciego
En tus ojos mientes, pero no dejo que eso te defina (hey)
Oh, te defina

En tus ojos
Veo que hay algo ardiendo dentro de ti
Oh, dentro de ti
Siempre tratas de esconder el dolor
Siempre sabes que decir
Siempre miro para otro lado
Estoy ciego, estoy ciego
En tus ojos mientes, pero no dejo que eso te defina
Oh, te defina
