Purple Kangaroo – Don't Close Your Eyes lyrics

Don't Close Your Eyes
(Lyrics by Cristoffer Escoz)
(Music by Cristoffer & Alexander Escoz)

I am, you are sleeping, sleeping
Dreaming of reunions, weeping, weeping
It seems that everybody's gone dreaming

She is, they are wishing, wishing
That their beloved had gone fishing, fishing
It seems that everybody's still hoping

Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes

He is, they are persuading, persuading
That war is something essential, they're lying, they're lying
They cannot see that their own people are crying

Well, here we are still praying for silence, for silence
Here we are still hoping for peace now, peace now
What can we do when democracies are murdering

Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes
