There was a time, where all felt fine
I came so close, to my personal cloud nine
Then right back down, I was earth-bound
Then right back up, this is what I found
I found Heaven-in those eyes,
What I saw-made me rise
Rise to the stars, where love was all it was
Rise to the stars, love was all it was, all it was

Refrain:
My eyes are shut but I still see
What is happening to me?
The beholder holds the key
Lock me up or set me free
My eyes are shut but still I see
What is happening to me?
The beholder holds the key
Lock me up or set me free

For once I might be right,
Change my ways over night
Realize what`s right or wrong,
This life will write my song, on and on
This is what it will become, my inspiration for so long
`til the night sets free to dawn so long, so long, so long

My eyes are shut but I still see
What is happening to me?
The beholder holds the key
Lock me up or set me free
My eyes are shut but still I see
What is happening to me?
The beholder holds the key
Lock me up or set me free

Some things may come and go
Disturbing this endless flow
And I see what`s at show
I see so much more than I could know
What`s making this happen to me?
I must examine it all to see
Cause what`s happening is endlessly
Is endlessly

My eyes are shut but I still see
What is happening to me?
The beholder holds the key
Lock me up or set me free
My eyes are shut but still I see
What is happening to me?
The beholder holds the key
Lock me up or set me free
