WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES

 

Hello, here you go, it still revolves you know?

We had our time but now it’s yours

At least the air is still breathable (sort of)

 

Like a film in Hollywood the ending comes so fast

Like a boat that lost at sea with no rudder and no mast

The time to act was years ago, there’s not much we can do

I’m sorry for that my child

The ocean’s full of greys and blues, the sun’s still burning too

Some days we can go outside

 

You won’t believe the things I see when I close my eyes

You won’t believe the things I see when I close my eyes

And sleep at night

 

I could fill your head with stories of once-upon-a-times

I could fill your mind with wonder of days we’ve left behind

It’s best I probably don’t though you wouldn’t understand

We took that away from you

And if I tried to tell you, how couldn’t you be mad?

We always knew the truth

 

You won’t believe the things I think when I close my eyes

You won’t believe the things I think when I close my eyes

And sleep at night

 

If I could take you back in time and show you all that used to shine

You wouldn’t recognize

The things we took for granted, and all the stupid madness

As if we were divine

 

You won’t believe the things I dream when I close my eyes

You won’t believe the things I dream when I close my eyes

And sleep at night

I can’t sleep at night

I won’t sleep tonight
