Close your eyes


Phone rings: Hello, what?!

(Guitar solo)

Arms wide open for you
Close your eyes and breathe again
She waits across to take you far away

You lived your life in misery
You shed the light on our dark minds
There is nothing that I can do for you
Tears just keep crashing

Sleep
Close your eyes
Breathe deeply and
Go to sleep

(Guitar solo)

The path has been cleared for you
It’s hard to believe life’s uncertainty
One moment you are and then you are not around

You lived your life in misery
You shed the light on our dark minds
There is nothing that I can do for you
Tears just keep crashing

Sleep
Close your eyes
Breathe deeply and
Go to sleep

(Music turns aggressive)

These tears of sheer agony!
Sheds the niceness inside me!
Spearing through my consciousness!
The blackness reappears!

I remember
The time when you had
Fought for us boldly
And saved us from the plight

I remember
The time when you had
Taught us the meaning
And essence of life

Take a deep breath and sleep
Through your journeys deep and steep!
I’ll be here my friend
For all that you did for me
Sacrifices with wounds!
I’ll be here my friend

This world has lost its faith!
Here truth is now a wraith!
Shut your eyes to this charade!

(Music turns soft)

And, Sleep
Close your eyes
Breathe deeply and
Go to sleep

wow so powerfully emotive...so sad, you havea telnt Bros, thank you for writing, Katie, x

Brosreview said...

@Rainbow dreams - Thanks a lot!!! It is based on a true incident in my life. Hence, the emotions. Ajey, x

Rikkij said...

Hey, Bros-What's shakin. I love music but have not the makings. So I take my enjoyment in others. Could really hear a melody hear, really flowed nice and great power in emotions. Godd job, Mate! I get songs in my head in the middle of the night. I get up to write them down, but in the morning, without the tune, it's all a little awkward. Regards~Rick

Brosreview said...

@Rikkij - Hey, yea, I come up with some songs in a similar manner.

I sing the tune to myself onto my mobile phone that allows me to voice record stuff. In that way, I keep the tune intact. But, I mostly ending up adding a tune just for the chorus or one verse. You can try doing this to save your imagination.

But, I can imagine the instrumental sections of my song quite well. Hence, I add them as I write my songs.

Thanks a lot mate!!! Appreciate it!!!

Meena said...

wow - I want the song. I don't know if it is possible to "want" a song, but if it is, I want this one.

Brosreview said...

@Meena - So, you liked this one, eh? Thank you.

Do you mean that you want to compose a tune for this one? Let me know.

Khaled KEM said...

You keep the emotions coming Ajey.
I noticed that you wrote it in 2004 and it is still very impressive. It is very nice to read it with the background piano music. I really wish that I can hear all you songs with music bros.

Meena said...

I meant I really like one. I can't compose anything...I'm good @ listening to music.

Me, myself and I said...

Very well worded.

Brosreview said...

The path has been cleared for you
It’s hard to believe life’s uncertainty
One moment you are and then you are not around

So true its hard to believe life's uncertainty

Brosreview said...

@Avinash - It is so very true. Thanks for visiting.

The Write Girl said...

Hey Brosreview,

Beautiful song, so vivid and emotionally palpable to the core.

Have you tried to record the song? Just curious but I'd love to hear what it sounds like performed. Amazing words. As always, thanks for visiting my site.

Take care

Brosreview said...

@The Write Girl - Thank you!!! No, I have not added a tune as of now. Once it is done, I shall post a link here.

"As always, thanks for visiting my site." - Pleasure is all mine!!!

budh.aaah said...

Thanks for visiting my blog Brosreview.
Your lyrics are touching and somehow in this one song evoke a strong/sad feeling of the loss of a mother..

Brosreview said...

@budh.aah - Thanks a lot!!!

Brosreview said...

@Make Me Disappear - Thanks a lot!!! I am glad you like this one!!!

Walker said...

A deep composition with alot of feeling in it.

Brosreview said...

@Walker - Thank you!!!

SarahA said...

You have an old head on young shoulders. I appreciate your comments, always.Thanks you.
I think when you feel things deeply, you write more deeply too and the reader can feel such. Hence the lyrics to 'Close your Eyes'
Song lyrics and Poetry are not so different, hey?

Brosreview said...

@SarahA - Very true SarahA!!! Thank you!!!

Viji said...

I closed my eyes and heard the song.you write your songs, compose music and play them? that should be heaven.. such a depth in words... amazed...

Brosreview said...

@Viji - Yes, I do to a certain extent. Thank you!!!

Meena said...

I just re-read this and as an interpretation, I think the "she" in the song can actually be "death" or the grim reaper. Just consider it. :-)

Brosreview said...

@Meena - Oh yea, that's a good one. But, nah, I have nothing for this one. This one's a straightforward one.

Meena said...

Lol,
I wasn't implying you did. Ans nothing is ever really simple.

Brosreview said...

@Meena - I got that. You were trying to establish a connection there, which is fine. But, this one is based on a true incident in my life. Hence,I stopped you. Pardon me.

Meena said...

Oh, I see.

Viji said...

revisited :) after what i wrote about friends yesterday... this time more than music i heard a cry from a heart for a friend... beautiful as usual.

Brosreview said...

@Viji - Oh, thank you so much!!!
