As I turn off the bed light
and close my eyes to fall asleep
The sound of music fills the room
and enters my sweet dreams
It creaks and groans in stairs and doors
A hum of voices hums
I search the house and what’s weird,
There’s no one here it could come from

Open your eyes
Open your eyes
See how the flowers have grown
See how the beauty is gone
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
There’s the house that we no longer own
And our cat is dead, buried and gone

A gentleman walks up to me
And asks me for a dance
His hands are cold, but eyes reveal
I’m his true love and romance
An old piano plays our song
The party takes the floor
I’ve known this man my entire life
Though he doesn’t live no more

Open your eyes
Open your eyes
See how the garden has grown
See how my beauty is gone

Open the doors
Open the doors
There’s the house that we no longer own
And our cat is dead, buried and gone

He carries me to bed
The morning after, folks have gone
What’s left is the same old piano
And a song that we both know
About Henrik and Nathalie
He died long before she was born
They meet in her dreams
And after life
They will share what was never begun


Open your eyes
Open your eyes
See what you wanted to see
It’s there if you only believe
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
I promise that we’ll meet again
We both know where, but I don’t know when
