The All-American Rejects – Close Your Eyes Lyrics

From the tongue it slips some simple twist of fate

To shape and shake the room we were standing in

And I remember then the silence

Made me weightless in the tonic of you once again

Where ignorance was bliss

Ignorance was this place we could exist

And then surrender

Do you remember?

The day you said it

That’s when I knew, that’s when I knew, that’s when I knew

I’ll never forget it

The day you said it

That’s when I knew, that’s when I knew, that’s when I knew

I’ll make you regret it

Now I’m staring at the ceiling wide awake

Man, shit gets real when you’re alone

(I wonder if you’ll ever know)

There’s these voices in my head

They’re screaming words I should’ve said

But I don’t know

I can’t let go

And you are down

Your taste was in my mouth

The lipstick on the window

You were gone

The day you said it

That’s when I knew, that’s when I knew, that’s when I knew

I’ll never forget it

The day you said it

That’s when I knew, that’s when I knew, that’s when I knew

I’ll make you regret it

It comes and goes around

Burn your bridges down

Kiss the ground and turn the other cheek

Why don’t you close your eyes one last time for me?

It comes and goes around

Burn your bridges down

Kiss the ground and turn the other cheek

Why don’t you close your eyes one last time for me?

The day you said it

That’s when I knew, that’s when I knew, that’s when I knew

I’ll never forget it

The day you said it

That’s when I knew, that’s when I knew, that’s when I knew

I’ll make you regret it

Close your eyes one last time for me

Close your eyes one last time for me
