"Looking Through Patient Eyes" is a song by American hip hop/R&B group P.M. Dawn. It was released in March 1993 as the second single from their album The Bliss Album…? (Vibrations of Love and Anger and the Ponderance of Life and Existence). The song, written by P.M. Dawn's Attrell Cordes, features backing vocals by Cathy Dennis and samples "Father Figure" by George Michael. The line "Joni help me, I think I'm falling" is a reference to Canadian singer Joni Mitchell's song "Help Me"; she is also referenced in the group's previous single "Set Adrift on Memory Bliss".
