There's a tenderness that I feel, very real you see
I can feel your body stir so deep within
Let it be an act of love tonight completely
Let me ask of you one thing

Don't close your eyes, tonight
Just look at me, see how many times I cried for you
Don't close your eyes, tonight
Let it be me, not just a fantasy, let it be me, tonight

You can lie so close to someone, still feel all alone
And though I've heard you say you love me so many times
When you give me love so beautiful and tender
Someone else is in your mind

Don't close your eyes, tonight
Just look at me, see how many times I cried for you
Don't close your eyes, tonight
Let it be me, not just a fantasy, let it be me, tonight

Sorry if I cry, the feelings run so deep
Many is the time when I wake up
And find I've been cryin' in my sleep

Look me in the eye, tell me what you see
I'm the one who loves you
I'm the one who needs you, make this one for me

Don't close your eyes, tonight
Just look at me, see how many times I cried for you
Don't close your eyes, tonight
Let it be me, not just a fantasy, let it be me, tonight

Don't close your eyes, tonight
Just look at me, see how many times I cried for you
Don't close your eyes, tonight
Let it be me, not just a fantasy, let it be me, tonight

Don't close your eyes, tonight
Just look at me, see how many times I cried for you
Don't close your eyes, tonight
Let it be me, not just a fantasy, let it be me, tonight
