"Close My Eyes Forever" as written by Lita Rossana Ford and Ozzy Osbourne....
Baby
I get so scared inside, and I don't really understand
Is it love that's on my mind, or is it fantasy?
Heaven
Is in the palm of my hand, and it's waiting here for you
What am I supposed to do with a childhood tragedy?

If I close my eyes forever
Will it all remain unchanged?
If I close my eyes forever
Will it all remain the same?

Sometimes
It's hard to hold on
So hard to hold on to my dreams
It isn't always what it seems
When you're face to face with me

You're like a dagger
And stick me in the heart
And taste the blood from my blade
And when we sleep, would you shelter me
In your warm and darkened grave?

If I close my eyes forever
Will it all remain unchanged?
If I close my eyes forever
Will it all remain the same?

Will you ever take me?
No, I just can't take the pain
But would you ever trust me?
No, I'll never feel the same, Oh

I know I've been so hard on you
I know I've told you lies
If I could have just one more wish
I'd wipe the cobwebs from my eyes

If I close my eyes forever
Will it all remain unchanged?
If I close my eyes forever
Will it all remain the same?

Close your eyes
Close your eyes
You gotta close your eyes for me

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl and a guy who have a relationship together - sorta. The guy knows the girl didn't grow up a good life, as her only idea of what a relationship is happened to come from bad, cheating parents..or whatever..and so when she cheats on him, he doesn't know what to do..

    Anyway, so the guy knows that he loves her and wants to be with her, but she is struggling with her feelings. At one point they had a wonderful relationship, and she knew she loved him. Now, though, she is unsure. She knows that he would be good for her, her would protect her and everything, but she feels he is also smuggling her - and this hurts her too, because she cares for him and doesn’t want to hurt him.

    She wishes she could figure out whether she loves him, and he knows that even when she does, he might not feel the same, because she did, after all, cheat on him.

    The chorus, or “Close my eyes,” is about them both wishing to go back to the past, when things were simpler…

    Of course, I could be wrong, but that’s what I got out of it. ^_^

    General CommentMy interpretation of this is that the guy is dead. She is talking to his ghost or maybe the part of her mind that is him. She betrayed him or something and he has committed suicide because of it. In the end, he is telling her to commit suicide if she wants to make am\mends and be with him forever.

    General Commenti think this is a romeo and juliet type song with an anti suicide vibe

    General Commenti don't know what it means to me except it sounds like both a love song and a cry for help.

    General Commentthis song is about the guy cheating on the lady but the gal still loves the guy... the guy loves the girl also but it is a different love than the love we see in childhood movies because he loves her but he isn't going to stop cheating on her...

    My InterpretationI have never been an OZZY fan, but we was exceptional were with Lita. As it was Lita's song, I will not look into rationale from Ozzy on the lyrics. I believe the song decribes a relationship that was once strong a vibrant, but fell apart when the woman in it started taking it for granted in some way. I am not sure what the "childhood tragedy" refers to, though it could have been either a child with another man as the father or an abortions apparently hidden from him. Throughout the song, both anguish over not being able to change the past. It may be that they are each asking themselves that, if they died, would the situation be any better for anyone, or that they wish they could simply undo the mistakes of the past. She admits to having treated him badly and having lied to him, and he admits to not being able to look past what has gone between them. The spicifics are vague, but the song is beautiful, haunting, and highly emotional with a feeling of desperation almost ready to erupt into something far worse.

    General CommentI think that the guy wants to be with her and he's basicly tried everything but hasn't got the message through to her. He thinks that the only way to really get her attention is for him to commit suicide hence closing his eyes forever. He wonders if then would she understand and consider it, or would she even care hence would it all remain the same. That's what comes to my mind. When a lot of people have relationship problems they sometimes come to the idea of suicide. And please this isn't a facebook page people. This website is made to provide info on the meaning of a song. Could we all stop posting random crap and tell what it actually means. If you don't know then don't put it on.
