Open My Eyes

On warm nights, the whiffs of wind and fireflies
trees and rivers, stars and skies - they all came alive
with funny voices you told me stories of their lives
you filled my days with magic and surprise

you made up an elf who lived behind the books
we played and imagined, where we are and who is who
and then you captivated your audiences
they clapped, laughed and cried
imagined you to be the hero of your life

I miss you and wish you were here
Loving me with all your heart space
I miss you, do you care?
Will you still remember my face?
I miss you and I’m waiting here,
Hoping we can be one again
Miss you, do you hear me?
I’ll sing out till I find you.

Open my eyes.
Open my eyes.
Open, Open, Open
My eyes.
Open
My eyes.

I'm trying to find the courage to appear
to say I love you despite your chaos and all the years between us
the beauty and the ugly truth,
are you too far gone? you have to fight…
to face your true self is the hardest thing in life

I miss you and wish you were here
Loving me within your heart space
I miss you, do you believe
that you can stand up on your feet
and make a change?
I miss you and I’m waiting here,
Hoping we can be one again
Miss you, do you hear me?
I’ll sing out till I find you.

you say that soon you'll go
before it's too late that i should come to you
i say you must keep on
fighting to turn your life around
i know (for years) you fought so hard
you tried alone and you tried with god
thank god you found the light
that carried you through
your grim reality
no food, no warmth,
no job and pleas
no friends, you're in it still
you accepted your doom

but let me and some us reach out
with you before you're too far gone
don't you give up on you
and let me love you, let me love you
let me and some of us reach out,
reach out, before your soul flies off

Open
Your eyes.
Open
Your eyes.
Open, Open, Open
Your eyes.
Open
Your eyes.
