"Open My Eyes" as written by Lauri Yloenen, Pauli Rantasalmi, Aki Hakala and Eero Heinonen....
Fear is like a tree
That grows inside of me silently
And you could be my blood
And be a part of me secretly

I've lost a war
I've lost a fight
I've killed a man
Wasted a life

Open my eyes, let me see you
And blow this blinding darkness away
Open my eyes, let me find you
Give me a sign

Hate is like a ghost
That lives inside of me, I plead
For you to be my guide
To be a feeder of my need

I've lost a war
I've lost a fight
I've killed a man
Wasted a life

Open my eyes, let me see you
And blow this blinding darkness away
Open my eyes, let me find you
Give me a sign

Take the world and fold me in
Free the soul behind the sin
The endless dark will be the death of my senses

Take my love and hold it in
Kill the beast under my skin
The endless dark will be the death of my senses

(Open my eyes)
Open my eyes, let me see you
And blow this blinding darkness away
Open my eyes
Open my eyes, let me see you
And blow this blinding darkness away
Open my eyes
Give me a sign

    General CommentGreat Song only two posts? wow. powerful i was at first wondering what the lines
    "I’ve lost a war
    I’ve lost a fight
    I’ve killed a man
    Wasted a life" meant, but i realized that is could mean himself not that he killed someone else. in this song he seems to be lost and wanting someone to help him ti "open his eyes" to the mistakes he is making.

    General Commentmaybe he was a soldier and he's sorry, trying to get away from the memories of the people he's killed, from the nightmares, only he's in love and his past is getting in their way and he feels like she's the only one who can help him.
    how come like no-one's commented????
