"When You Close Your Eyes" as written by and Carly Simon Billy Mernit....
When you close your eyes do you see
White Lorelei, she's a dream
She's not half as magic as she seems
But she's so much fun to be with

When you close your eyes do you see
Places that you've never seen
Yet you've been there
You've been walking on the edges of a dream
And you're so much fun to be with

Big surprise, you've been informed you're not asleep
Hard as you try you were never really meant to weep

When you close your door with a sign
Do not disturd, are you disturbed to find
That it's just as magic as it feels
And you're so much fun to be with

    General CommentTo me this song means that people, no matter how hard they try, will never totally please anyone. Perhaps it may even mean that it's not worth it. I'm guessing there is some sort of secret and personal pop cultural reference, seeing as in this album 'No Secret' Carly Simon has a few.
