GO!

[Chorus]
If you close your eyes, your life will make the truth reveal
Dreams you never lived, and scars never heal
In the darkness, light will take you to the other side
And find me waiting there you'll see, if you just close your eyes
If you just close your eyes
If you just close your eyes

[Verse 1]
Deceived by my eyes and all I was told I should see
Opinions not mine, the person they taught me to be
One night in the dark, a vision of someone I knew
And then in the darkness I saw, a voice say, "I'm you"
Inside me a light was turned on, then I was alive

[Chorus]
If you close your eyes, your life will make the truth reveal
Dreams you never lived, and scars never heal
In the darkness, light will take you to the other side
And find me waiting there you'll see, if you just close your eyes

[Verse 2]
Hearts uninspired, trapped inside somebody's dream
Too close to the fire, yet cold and numb with the pain
But the fever has broken and the river has run to the sea
Washed to the ocean and saved by a voice inside me

[Chorus]
If you close your eyes, your life will make the truth reveal
Dreams you never lived, and scars never heal
In the darkness, light will take you to the other side
And find me waiting there you'll see, if you just close your eyes


[Bridge]
Never thought I would be here, so high in the air
This was my unanswered prayer.
Defined by another, so much wasted time
Out of the darkness, each breath that I take will be mine

[Chorus]
If you close your eyes, your life will make the truth reveal
Dreams you never lived, and scars never heal
In the darkness, light will take you to the other side
And find me waiting there you'll see, if you just close your eyes
If you just close your eyes
If you just close your eyes!

    General CommentThis is a cover from Waterproof Blonde, and is the theme song of Christian, a WWE star, and is made just for him, because the Waterproof Blonde version was made also for him, just the story of the year version was made for his comeback.

    General CommentI always thought that the song meant this:
    There are so many people trying to force you to see what they see and be someone your not in this world. It's saying if you close your eyes you see what you want to see and who you are. The song tells of the realization of someone who was a pawn but took controll of his/her life. It's a deep song with a great meaning and riff. Utmost respect to SOTY and Jim Johnson.

    Song MeaningThis is one of my favorite songs by Story Of the Year and definitely gets the adrenaline going. I think the meaning behind this song is that we can't live under the label of others, and can not find peace and passion until we find ourselves, and that ultimately the way you live and the choices you make determine who you really are. I love the quote, "In the darkness light will take you to the other side," it's so profound, and in my opinion it's a way of saying even in the darkest time, the light, or what I refer to as God, will take us and shape us into people of passion, desire, and purpose.
