2nd Track off of "Paper Boy".


Eyes wide open,
With a sense of relief in my heart,
Rest a glance at your form,
As you rest in an arc.

Reach out,
To say that I love you for all of your cheer,
My finger, it brushes your hair,
That bothers your cheek.

With eyes wide open,
I draw your face,
In my mind,
Time closes on me.

Eyes wide open,
As I wake from a deep slumber,
Shrug away,
The warmth of a hand off my shoulder.

Smile to myself,
As your presence still lingers,
Recall with affection,
The touch on my cheek forever.

With eyes wide open,
I saw a dream of your face,
It lingers but wait,
Time closes on me.
