You close your eyes

The world I see is always in your eyes
Reflected in a perfect shade of green
Reality is is such a thin disguise
You close your eyes and swallow all I’ve seen

I always see your face in front of me
Your freckles and your lashes gently curled
With just a smile you’d end my liberty
You close your eyes and swallow all the world

I cannot touch you we are far apart
Cruel fates have slashed my picture with a knife
It feels as though they plunged it in my heart
You close your eyes and swallow up my life

I dream we are as one this night in June
Now close your eyes and swallow up the moon
