lyrics

CLOSED EYES

It's near midnight
I close my eyes
You hear me breathe
I hear you sigh
that I should try to get some sleep

But I would linger at the seams
that bind reality to dreams,
where I can feel you by my side;

where fears are phantoms, frail and grey,
that make-believe could drive away;
where hope and truth at last collide

I see no impending life without you,
no need for tears or sad goodbyes,
if I close my eyes

I see it now: you'd make it hard to rise from bed
Out in the yard we'd grow some pumpkins to bake bread
And you could help me write my songs
Our kids would be bright, but quite headstrong
I'd sing them hushabye each night

After our passions were laid bare
you would help me comb my hair
You would say I was your home

Don't ask me to think of life without you!
Don't dwell upon preordained goodbyes....
Just close your eyes
