"Close Your Eyes" as written by and Dan Keyes....
Anything we should know about your change? -- Close your eyes
Don't want you to see
Where I'm taking you tonight
Let's just say
It's a surprise
Seeing you again
What a surprise
To be with you again

I'm a man
On the scene
See you around
The same way I always do
See you around
The same way I always do
See you around
You know I'm hoping to

Where are we going
Have we gone too far
Losing our clothing
Have we gone too far (4x)

What a surprise
Seeing you again
What a surprise
To be with you again

See you around
The same way I always do
See you around
You know I'm hoping to

Where are we going?
Just close your eyes
Till we get there
You won't know where I hope
See you around
The way I always do you
It's always a surprise
To be with you

    General CommentAmazing song.

    Two lovers- not an official couple "I'm a man on the scene" he's a social bird, but always comes back to her. The one.

    They are infactuated with one another and fascianated with the idea of not knowing when they'll come together again. But they pine for it.

    And that is the beauty of not knowing. It's a blind surprise. 'Close your eyes.'

    General CommentThis song is beautiful, the lyrics are simple but say a lot.
    i think that its about a couple who broke up and rekindle there love again

    since the lyrics say" what a surprise to be with you"and see you around the same way i always do see you around

    which i think means that they had seen each other around but never got the chance to rekindle there love.

    i love the song anyways cant stop listening to it

    General CommentI actually have an alternate theory of what this song is about. I know most people will disagree with me, but I think it's about a man staring at himself in the mirror, with his conscience talking to him. Think about it:

    Perhaps the man has had a terrible life and is lost in depression. He looks in the mirror at what he's become and plans on taking his life. His soul suddenly starts talking to him, though, and says "just close your eyes, i'll take you somewhere, but you can't know where, it's a surprise." The man then closes his eyes and falls asleep, during which his soul takes him to a wonderful dream where all of life's sorrows are gone. The man's soul then tells the man that it hopes to see him around, perhaps preventing or discouraging him from commiting suicide.

    Anyways, I know that may have sounded silly, but this is my own personal interpretation of the song.

    General Commentok well first of all, this is such a great song and it always makes me feel like i'm in a beautiful dream with the love of my life. lol.


    well i agree with all of your interpreted meanings of the song.


    but on the same sort of theme as minervo:
    i think it could be a depressed young person;

    "close your eyes"
    when you are depressed you kind of just want to get away from the world.


    "what a surprise to be with you again"
    he or she was depressed for so long and they finally got help or are just starting to feel better and they see themselves happy again and they're so surprised because they hadn't been happy in such a long time and they never thought they would be again so its a surprise to see themselves like this again.


    "see you around, the way i always do"
    they aren't really sure if they are really truly happy again or if life is just playing tricks on them again, and this happens a lot where they think they're happy again but they truly aren't. hence "the way i always do" because they feel like they play the role of pretending to be happy for the sake of others.


    "see you around, you know i'm hoping to"
    they hope that they really truly are happy and they want to feel this way again.


    "have we gone too far?"
    have they gone too far into trying to convince themselves they are going to feel better and happier? are they just setting themselves up for disappointment?



    "just close your eyes till we get there"
    just focus on yourself and block out the world until you feel the way you want to be and are who you want to be.





    i don't know though :) that was just a thought.
    but yeah great song<3
