When I Close My Eyes (No One Can See Me)

Tits & Ass Demo, 24 July 1999 3:13

Something woke me up in the middle of the night
I never ever felt so lonely
I thought about giving you a call, but it was half past five

Got out of bed, walked through the room to the window
I saw twenty seven blocks still sleeping
I thought about giving you a call to get it off my mind

I do believe when I close my eyes no one can see me
I do believe when I close my eyes no one can see me

Some days are definitely better than others
Some got a flair so tragic
I wish you were here to be near to help me through the night
But then again I got to carry on among the living and leave these whirlwind battles behind me
Watching you sleep only keeps on blurring my sight

I do believe when I close my eyes no one can see me
I do believe when I close my eyes no one can see me

Who in this world would believe change will come eventually to me?
I long to get out in the sun, out in the sun, out in the rain and wash these stains away

I do believe when I close my eyes no one can see me
I do believe when I close my eyes no one can see me
I do believe when I close my eyes no one can see me

I do believe
I do believe when I close my eyes no one can see me
When I close my eyes
