Tell me that you'll open your eyes

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
