"Close Your Eyes" as written by and Johnny/takac Rzeznik....
I wish I had a saxophone
I'd play the blues 'til you came home
With a little sadness in your eyes

Now that all my time was spent
In the walk your heaven sent
Thinking 'bout all the nights you cried

[Chorus]
Had a certain passion
And I had silly dreams
A look of vicious actions
Don't close your eyes to me
Don't close your eyes to me
Oh, don't close your eyes to me
Don't close your eyes to me

I wish I had a camera lens
To film the things my mind had said
Before they reached my mouth and got all bad

Looking at the skies of blue
All day long, I think of you
Even after all the shit we've been through

[Chorus]

Oh, don't close your eyes to me
Close your eyes to me
Close your eyes to me
Eyes to me
Close your eyes to me
Don't close your eyes to me
Close your eyes to me
Close your eyes to me
Don't close your eyes to me
Eyes to me

    General Commenti think it's about a guy who stuck close to his girlfriend after being through a lot with her, but he's saying "don't close your eyes to me" because he hates that she's not around anymore. he can't figure out where he went wrong: "i wish i had a camera lens to film the things my mind had said, before they reached my mouth and got all bent." all he does is sit around and think about her, wanting her to come back to him.
