"Open Your Eyes" as written by and John Kenneth/downes Wetton....
Day after day all I saw was you
And the sky came a tumbling down
Smoke in the air all I want is truth

I am a light that's aglow, that's alive
That's a warm place in your heart
You kept turning me on and off
'Til I went out and you were standing, shivering in the dark

Open your eyes
And see me leaving
Closing the door
I won't think twice
When you come pleaing
Not anymore

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

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 over loneliness and pride I stumble

Open your eyes
And see me leaving
Closing the door
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
'Cause I'm telling you right now
That I'm a free young woman
And I gotta be moving on

Once I was lost in my strife
And getting you off was my life
I was in doubt, now I know
That getting 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 having on me

Open your eyes
And see me leaving
Closing the door
I won't think twice
When you come pleaing
Not anymore (not anymore), no, no

You're not the man
That I remember
Tell me your name
Cold empty seat
That long November
You never came

Open your eyes
And see me
See me leaving

    General Commentsomeone who's messed her about too many times. Or the relationship just wasn't right in someway, so she moves on and tries to get back into a "normal life" even though it's harder than she imagined to, and she's telling him she's for real about starting over... I'm pretty sure it's about an older guy.
