"In Your Eyes" is a song by British musician Peter Gabriel from his 1986 album So with Youssou N'Dour singing some choruses translated into his native Wolof. The track was the main-theme song of the 1989 teen drama film Say Anything... starring Ione Skye and John Cusack.

The single only was released in North-America as the third single from "So" in the U.S., the song achieved strong radio airplay and a constant MTV rotation. It reached #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks on September, 13 of the same year, it also peaked #26 on the Billboard Hot 100 in November 1986. It was not released as a single in the UK. However, Gabriel did release two extended versions of the song as a 12" vinyl single in the US. The first (the Single Mix) ran 6:15. The second (the Special Mix) ran 7:14.

The song was the finale of the Secret World Tour and is the final track on the 1994 Secret World Live album, where it is over 11 minutes long and includes the extra lyrics from the Special Mix, in addition to solos by the other singers and players. It was included on the US version of his 2003 compilation Hit, but not on the European or Japanese versions.
