Kansas – Don't Open Your Eyes lyrics

Who sees you when you're sleeping
Who knows the thoughts you're keeping
You're reaching out your hand 'cause someone's calling
Don't open your eyes too soon 'cause it might be me

The darkened sidestreets that you've taken
Faces all around say you're forsaken
You see yourself and someone else behind you
Don't open your eyes too soon it might not be me

Haunted by my broken dreams
Haunted by my empty screams

Creeping cautions 'round the corner
Climbing slowly out the window
Running fast but getting nowhere
Don't know if I'll ever make it back alive
