Lyrics

Close your eyes, don’t try tonight
Those fears behind your eyes can wait
Maybe when you rise those bluer skies
Like waking dreams will materialize
But for now what you can do, you’ve done
And for now, in your own way, you’ve won.

So let the earth turn ‘neath your feet,
‘neath your feet
Babe it’s a slow burn, you can sleep,
you can sleep
And when the news breaks in the streets,
in the streets
We’ll dance until the sunrise.

So close your eyes, don’t cry tonight
Those tears behind your eyes can wait
Maybe when you rise those bluer skies
Like waking dreams will materialize
But for now what you can do, you’ve done
And for now, in your own way, you’ve won.
But for now what you can do, you’ve done
And for now, in your own way, you’ve won.
