Tell me that you'll open your eyes

    Newer Older

    All this feels strange and untrue
    And I won't waste a minute without you
    My bones ache, my skin feels cold
    And I'm getting so tired and so old

    The anger swells in my guts
    And I won't feel these slices and cuts
    I want so much to open your eyes
    Cos I need you to look into mine

    Tell me that you'll open your eyes

    Get up, get out, get away from these liars
    Cos they don't get your soul or your fire
    Take my hand, knot your fingers through mine
    And we'll walk from this dark room for the last time

    Every minute from this minute now
    We can do what we like anywhere
    I want so much to open your eyes
    Cos I need you to look into mine

    Tell me that you'll open your eyes

    All this feels strange and untrue
    And I won't waste a minute without you
