AJ:
My feet on the ground but I can't run
Drowning the noise inside my head
Who is this man that I've become?
It's killing me to see myself

How do you learn how to forgive
When deep down inside you can't forget?
With all that I regret
I pray for the first time in a long time
The lies fade away

Nick:
Finally I'm waking up
I feel like I can let you go
Say everything I wanted to say
I'm okay with being alone

Chorus:
When I close my eyes
When I close my eyes

AJ:
I'm alive

I never was sure but now I am
This was the choice I had to make
Maybe I'll never understand
Sometimes you gotta make mistakes

Nick:
Finally I'm waking up
I feel like I can let you go
Say everything I wanted to say
I'm okay with being alone

Finally I'm facing up
I feel like I can let it show
I know I can walk away
I'm okay with being alone

Chorus:
When I close my eyes
(Brian: close my eyes, close my eyes)
When I close my eyes
(Brian: close my eyes, close my eyes)
When I close my eyes

AJ:
How do you know where to go when you're going?
(Chorus: When I close my eyes)
How do you know that you know when it's over?

Brian:
I see for the first time in a long time
Believe me when I say,..

Nick:
Finally I'm waking up
I feel like I can let you go
Say everything I wanted to say
I'm okay with being alone

Finally I'm facing up
I feel like I can let it show
I know I can walk away
I'm okay with being alone

Chorus:
When I close my eyes
(Brian: close my eyes, close my eyes)
When I close my eyes
(Brian: close my eyes, close my eyes)
When I close my eyes
I'm alive

AJ:
I'm alive

    General CommentReally great song. It's about leaving the past behind and concentrating on the future, when you want to do so, but not always you are able to do so. It's about relationships, that are over, and how you try to forget them. It's about being somewhere between then and now.
    I like how AJ sings "How do you know, where to go, when you go away? And how do you know, that you know, when it's over?" Awesome, meaningful line.
