Tell me that you’ll open your eyes

I’m in a Snow Patrol kind of mood… this song is especially poignant for me, it’s truth felt in this moment lying within these simple words.

All this feels strange and untrue 
And I won’t waste a minute without you 
My bones ache, my skin feels cold 
And I’m getting so tired and so old 

The anger swells in my guts 
And I won’t feel these slices and cuts 
I want so much to open your eyes 
Cos I need you to look into mine 

Tell me that you’ll open your eyes [x4]

Get up, get out, get away from these liars 
Cos they don’t get your soul or your fire 
Take my hand, knot your fingers through mine 
And we’ll walk from this dark room for the last time 

Every minute from this minute now 
We can do what we like anywhere 
I want so much to open your eyes 
Cos I need you to look into mine 

Tell me that you’ll open your eyes [x8]

All this feels strange and untrue 
And I won’t waste a minute without you

  1. I used to just skip these posts, until one day – on a lark – I listened to this Josh Groban one you posted. It is now one of my favorite songs ever.

    This one is equally beautiful. Just beautiful.
