Go!

If you close your eyes, Your life, a naked truth revealed,
Dreams you never lived and scars never healed
(Scars never healed)
In the darkness life will take you to the other side,
And find me waiting there you'll see if you just close your eyes.
If you just close your eyes.
(If you just close your eyes)

Deceived by my eyes and all I was told I should see.
Opinions not mine, The person they taught me to be.
One night in the dark of vision of someone I know,
And out of the darkness I heard a voice say I'm you.

Inside of me a light was turned on. Then I was alive.

If you close your eyes, Your life a naked truth revealed,
Dreams you never lived and, scars never healed
(Scars never healed)
In the darkness life will take you to the other side,
And find me waiting there, you'll see if you just close your eyes.
(Close Your Eyes)

Hearts uninspired, trapped inside somebody's dream.
To close to the fire, Yet cold and so numb with the pain.
But the fever is broken, and the river has run to the sea.
Washed to the ocean and saved by a voice inside me.

Inside of me a light was turned on, Then I was alive.

If you close your eyes. Your life a naked truth revealed,
Dreams you never lived and scars never healed
(Scars never healed)
In the darkness life will take you to the other side,
And find me waiting there you'll see if you just close your eyes.
(If You just close your eyes. If You just close your eyes)

Never thought I would be here, so high in the air.
This was my unanswered prayer.
Defined by another, so much wasted time,
Out of the darkness, each breath that I take will be mine.

If you close your eyes, Your life, a naked truth revealed,
Dreams you never lived and scars never healed
(Scars never healed)
In the darkness life will take you to the other side,
And find me waiting there you'll see if you just close your eyes.
If you just close your eyes.
(If you just close your eyes)

    I think the meaning behind this song is that we can't live under the label of others, and can not find peace and passion until we find ourselves, and that ultimately the way you live and the choices you make determine who you really are. I love the quote, "in the darkness light will take you to the other side," it's so profound, and in my opinion it's a way of saying even in the darkest time, the light, or what I refer to as god, will take us and shape us into people of passion, desire, and purpose.
