"Eyes Wider Than Before" as written by Scott Matthews and Danny Keane....
I love that distant beam of light
a drop of neon floods my weary eyes
illuminates my soul, is inspired
I'm heading your way with the traffic
by my side
remember how it was before
just a minute away
I'll be knocking on your front door
don't underestimate, this place is tired
every second is treated as though
there is no time

Your eyes are wider than before
So little has changed
but your eyes now see much more

hush, now sway and fall asleep
gonna drive you away from the trampling of bustling feet
you can lose your troubled thoughts
for tonight at least
you can wake in the morning
feeling that you can breathe

little darling you're mine for tonight
your mellow and tender self
is hard to climb
from you, I turn all doubts deep inside
I surrender myself to your presence
and peace of mind

Your eyes are wider than before
So little has changed
but your eyes now see much more
so much more
so, so much more
so much more
so much more

    My OpinionThis reminds me of a distant relationship, but maybe that's because I'm in one myself haha :) I get this opinion by such lines as 'remember how it was before/just a minute away' as if they are now apart but not out of choice and you can lose your troubled thoughts/for tonight at least/you can wake in the morning/
    feeling that you can breathe' when they are together for those few precious moments she can 'breathe' again, that's how I feel because when I'm apart with my boyfriend I only feel half of myself. I don't know though that's just an opinion feel free to comment :D

    My InterpretationThey were obviously once together.. hence the "remember how it was before" unless he only means remember how life was before. but i think he knows her from before because he is saying her eyes are wider than before, such a small change but now she sees so much more, so they have known each other for a while. Like most girls it sounds like she worries, is mellow, and tender. but he has strong feelings and surrenders to her. and together he feels they have a peace of mind:) sounds like he is trying to make it work because they are struggling since she is only his for tonight:/
