James A. Taylor – My Eyes lyrics

Tic tock goes the clock
Life is passing by
The bravery of the common man
To face his foe eye to eye
A zig zag across the breast
Another battle scar
Just another slice , there ain’t much left
Of who you are

I’m afraid to die with my eyes wide open
‘Cause I don’t know what I’ll see
I have lived my life with my eyes wide open
Before I go please close them for me

Babies I seen ‘em born
Heard the beauty of their first cry
The life force like a new sunrise
Rising up to meet blue sky
I smell the rain
And breathe the air
The snow upon my head
The wind is blowing through the trees
I will watch it blow until I’m dead

I’m afraid to die with my eyes wide open
‘Cause I don’t know what I’ll see
I have lived my life with my eyes wide open
Before I go please close them for me

Sing a song when I’m gone
With a melody so gay
Play the pipes and beat the drum
Just a hint of sadness fiercely played
I drink to you sweet visions gift
No better sight I’ve seen
The colours swirl round this magic world
So thankful to have been
