home: mariah carey ยป mariah carey - close my eyes

Testo close my eyes - mariah carey

I was a wayward child

With the weight of the world

That I held deep inside

Life was a winding road

And I learned many things

Little ones shouldn't know



Chorus

But I closed my eyes

Steadied my feet on the ground

Raised my head to the sky

And though time's rolled by

Still I feel like that child

As I look at the moon

Maybe I grew up

A little too soon



Funny how one can learn

To grow numb to the madness

And block it away

I left the worse unsaid
/>
Let it all dissipate

And I try to forget



Chorus



(Bridge)

Nearing the edge

Oblivious I almost

Fell right over

A part of me

Will never be quite able

To feel stable

That woman-child falling inside

Was on the verge of fading

Thankfully I

Woke up in time



Guardian angel I

Sail away on an ocean

With you by my side

Orange clouds roll by

They burn into your image

And you're still alive

(you're always alive)



Chorus
