Sonia Funk: Listen

Close Your Eyes

You say you’re not afraid of the darkness but I know that’s where you cry

You say that you don’t really need that security blanket but I know that’s where you hide

If a light shone on you could you open your eyes?

If the healing was as real as your pain could you close your eyes and fall in to the rest that could find you and keep you and hold you, forever…?

 

You say that it all happens without the highest order but I think you’re afraid to choose so you ‘don’t care’

You say that you don’t really mind drowning in all the lies you tell but I’ve seen you come up wanting air

If a light shone on you could you open your eyes?

If the healing was as real as your pain could you close your eyes and fall in to the rest that would find you and hold you and heal you, forever…?

 

Ah – ah – ah

Ah – ah – ah

Ah – ah – ah

Ah….

 

You’re drowning in the waters, the waves are pushing and pulling you under

The wind is blowing and the sky is clouding over

And I, I am standing on your shore

Watching you drown out there

 

But you say you’re not afraid of the darkness but I know that’s where you cry

 

So close your eyes and rest

Close your eyes

Close your eyes
