"Close Your Eyes" as written by and Benny Cassette Tyson Ritter....
From the tongue it slips some simple twist of fate
To shape and shake the room we were standing in
And I remember then the silence made me weightless in the tonic of you once again
Where ignorance was bliss
Ignorance was this place we could exist and then surrender
Do you remember?

The day you said it
That's when I knew, that's when I knew, that's when I knew
I'll never forget it
The day you said it
That's when I knew, that's when I knew, that's when I knew
I'll make you regret it

Now I'm staring at the ceiling wide awake
Man, shit gets real when you're alone
(I wonder if you'll ever know)
There's these voices in my head
They're screaming words I should've said
But I don't know
I can't let go
And you are down
Your taste was in my mouth
The lipstick on the window
You were gone

The day you said it
That's when I knew, that's when I knew, that's when I knew
I'll never forget it
The day you said it
That's when I knew, that's when I knew, that's when I knew
I'll make you regret it

It comes and goes around
Burn your bridges down
Kiss the ground and turn the other cheek
Why don't you close your eyes one last time for me?
It comes and goes around
Burn your bridges down
Kiss the ground and turn the other cheek
Why don't you close your eyes one last time for me?

The day you said it
That's when I knew, that's when I knew, that's when I knew
I'll never forget it
The day you said it
That's when I knew, that's when I knew, that's when I knew
I'll make you regret it

Close your eyes one last time for me
Close your eyes one last time for me

    General CommentAah no ones commented on this song
    ok well I’ll start I love this song it’s so.. calm and I’m not sure how to explain it but it’s very vague I guess. Kinda harder to crack than others. I’m guessing it’s about him reflecting on where they left off
    something he had with someone and something quick/short but seemingly explosive happened that put a kind of abrupt pause to the relationship or maybe broke them up(she probably said something judging by the line ‘from the tongue it slips some simple twist of fate’) but he’s definitely bitter and she left him or broke it off like she said something in the moment and he’s kind of just stewing about it in a way reflecting back on their ‘ignorance’ as when they where blinded by what they had and didn’t look beyond that.
    he just wants to remain in that one moment where he can savour the bliss of what they had before they ‘awoke’.
    He’s still caught up in everything and disguised how he misses her. He still feels this sense of bitterness at how she left him and he’s deeply consumed in it all
    it’s all very confusing lol I’m trying to figure this song out but I think I’m so far out.
    As far as the music video goes that’s a whole other story
