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

Lyin’ here in your arms

Knowing he’s in your mind

But I keep hoping some day

That you’ll see the light

Let it be 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

 

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

 

Just hold me tight

When you love me tonight

And don’t close your eyes
