Open Your Eyes Lyrics

by Bonnie Mckee

Day after day all I saw was you
And the sky came a tumblin' down
Smoke in the air, all I want is truth

And I am alive, that's a glow, that's alive
That's a warm place in your heart
You kept turnin' me on and off till I went out
And you were standin', shiverin' in the dark

Open your eyes and see me leaving
Closing the door, da dada, da dadada
I won't think twice when you come pleaing
Not anymore, da dada, da dadada

Hope was a dream that I had of you
And the soft form slumber of dawn
I must keep in mind that reality
Can be painful if neglected too long

And I am aware that I will soon be released
To the mercy of a concrete jungle
I thought that I could glide right in but instead
It's of a loneliness and bright eyed stumble

Open your eyes and see me leaving
Closing the door, da dada, da dadada
I won't think twice when you come pleaing
Not anymore, no, no, no

Open your eyes and see that I am not afraid
Of saying goodbye, your strikes are up, I'm gone
So don't even try 'cuz I'm telling you right now
Hey that I'm a free young woman and I gotta be movin' on

Once I was lost in my strife
And getting you off was my life
I was in doubt, now I know
That gettin' rid of you was all I needed to grow

Once I was lost, now I'm found
With my Adidas on the ground
Once I was blind, now I see
The negative effect that you were havin' on me

Open your eyes and see me leaving
Closing the door, da dada, da dadada
I won't think twice when you come pleaing
Not anymore, no, no

You're not the man that I remember
Tell me your name, da dada, da dadada
Cold empty seat, that long November
You never came no, no, no

Open your eyes and see me, see me leaving
