"Close My Eyes" as written by Jaron Lowenstein and Evan Lowenstein....
Looking over the edge
I can almost see you smile
But I can't be too sure
Looking to the light
I can almost hear you call
But I can't be too sure
Please don't leave me here alone
It's getting dark
Please take me home
What else can I say
To make you look my way
I've tried to do the things you've said
It's not working
Is it all in my head
I want to close my eyes
And count to ten
And when I open them
I want to be somewhere else
I just don't see the things
Other people seem to see
Reaching out to touch you
A name without a face
But I don't really understand
I ask to you these questions
For you I do recall
After it all
Please don't leave me here alone
It's getting dark
Please take me home
I've tried to do the things you've said
It's not working
Is it all in my head
(Chorus)

    General CommentThis is one of Evan and Jaron's best songs. I actually like to think of it as him asking God ("a name without a face") for help. He feels lost, and everything he tries just doesn't work. It sounds like he's suicidal and just wants it all to be over.
