"Eyes Wide Open" as written by and Oliva Broadfield....
The stars are shining as the moon is rising
stay where you are
as I close the curtains nothing is for certain
so stay where you are

Keep your eyes wide open
I know where both tired
I can't help but think
This might be the last time (x2)

Daylights approaching and my mind is coasting
out of control
These days without you memories start to cloud you
out of control

Keep your eyes wide open
I know where both tired
I can't help but think
This might be the last time (x2)

out of control (x2)

Keep your eyes wide open
I know where both tired
I can't help but think
This might be the last time (x4)

    My InterpretationIt's about a hookup. She's trying to cherish their possible final moments together.

    The stars are shining as the moon is rising
    Stay where you are
    As I close the curtains, nothing is for certain
    So stay where you are
    (She's with her lover, and is contemplating the uncertainty of their relationship.)

    Keep your eyes wide open
    I know we're both tired
    I can't help but think
    This might be the last time
    (Her lover is sleepy. He probably keeps his eyes closed when they make love. She's asking him to look in her eyes. She knows that this could possibly be their final encounter, and wants to enjoy it.)

    Daylights approaching and my mind is coasting
    Out of control
    These days without you, memories start to cloud you
    Out of control
    (She's thinking about him. She misses him. Her imagination is running wild.)

    Beautiful song. It really captivated me when I heard it in a local department store a few month sago.
