​Don't Close Your Eyes

This song is by Josh Woodward and appears on the album The Simple Life (2008).

Cold hands, sore feet
You've been walking for an hour on abandoned streets
Weak knees, and fresh scars
It's a struggle when you're losing track of who you are
The words you stole won't save your soul
They can only buy you time
Light a candle, or curse the dark
It's all the same to me
Start a fire, or drown the spark
And shake away the heat
Tell the truth or live a lie
Just don't close your eyes

Let down, and so spent
You've been holding up the world with your good intent
Help out, like you should
It's a burden that you never really understood
But Caroline, I'm doing fine
It's the others who are dying
Light a candle, or curse the dark
It's all the same to me
Start a fire, or drown the spark
And shake away the heat
Tell the truth or live a lie
Just don't close your eyes
And you're breaking
But you're faking nothing's ever wrong
And concealing what you're feeling
Always standing strong
But you don't need
To act like you don't bleed
When you come falling down
'Cause there is no healing when you're not feeling
Anything at all

Light a candle, or curse the dark
It's all the same to me
Start a fire, or drown the spark
And shake away the heat
Tell the truth or live a lie

Just don't close your eyes
