  • close my eyes for me, i don’t want to fall asleep alone
    close my eyes for me, i can feel the emptiness in my bones
    close my eyes for me, my body is still as a stone
    close my eyes for me, if you know when my home’s not my home

    save me from this mind wracked with violence
    sometimes i wish that wind was strangers in the night
    so there’d be someone to hear me screaming in silence
    clinging to my home when she’s out of sight

    the fog wrinkles my mind and turns my eyes to stone
    if the fog doesn’t get me tonight, I’ll sit tight and dream of my home
    close my eyes for me, i can’t take another night alone
    tell my heart to beat (if there’s a point when I’m not home)
