Keith Whitley – Don't Close Your Eyes lyrics

I know you loved him a long time ago
Even now in my arms you still want him I know
But darling this time let your memories die
When you hold me tonight don't close your eyes

Don't close your eyes let it be me
Don't pretend it's him in some fantasy
Darling just once let yesterday go
You'll find more love than you've ever known
Just hold me tight when you love me tonight
And don't close your eyes

Maybe I've been a fool holding on all this time
Lying here in your arms knowing he's in your mind
But I keep hoping someday that you'll see the light
Let it be me tonight, don't close your eyes

Repeat chorus 2x

    I am living within the very words of this song. It bothers me but I'm sure not as much as its bothering him. We've been living together five years and still I only think of him as a good friend. Yes I love him but not the way he loves me. I still in love with someone from the past.
