Morrissey - When You Close Your Eyes Lyrics




When you close your eyes do you see
White Lorelei, she's a dream
She's not half as magic as she seems
But she's so much fun to be with

When you close your eyes do you see
Places that you've never seen
Yet you've been there
You've been walking on the edges of a dream
And you're so much fun to be with

Big surprise, you've been informed you're not asleep
Hard as you try you were never really meant to weep

When you close your door with a sign
Do not disturb, are you disturbed to find
That it's just as magic as it feels
And you're so much fun to be with

Morrissey When You Close Your Eyes Comments
  1. Veterans Today Network

    Whoa! A Carly Simon cover from 1972? Wow, this CALIFORNIA SON album is a ode to the 1970s. Excuse the cracks. That's what it was off a Vynyl record back then. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5_JIAjI53M

  2. Nelson Jones

    Sleep when you're dead

  3. Antaresymphony

    i love this

  4. Sekai Ni Heiwa

    there is no art , money , religion or "awakening" that will substitute your child jumping on your chest ... how pity some smart people can go down the river to nowhere with nothing in their hands feeling fake something....

  5. Daniel Rodriguez

    This song is so "maladjusted" I love it, my TOP TEN Moz song 💙

  6. M. Hasan

    So beautiful song.

  7. taciana Ferreira

    Brilhante!!!❤❤❤

  8. Andrea Roldan

    He is the best ❤

  9. kevin104z

    Beautiful!

  10. Skeeter NYC

    I love Carly but I think a simpler production would've served the song better. Sorry Moz.

    Morrissey is a great artist. He knows that labels are fictitious. Keep it up, Legend!

    henryxwoods

    Although I suppose that calling Morrissey a Legend is a label. What I am referring to is calling people a negative label, like he has been exposed to. The real Morrissey is an artist, and artists have no place in a world that wants to generalise, and keep things nice and simple.

  12. Bill mazey Mazey

    this really sucks

  13. E M1

    Morrissey out shines Carly Simons' version.

    Carly Simon never lies! To whom it may concern, Carly wrote this song 46 years ago.

    Sweet. Love your voice. There is never a need to read the lyrics. I can always understand what you're saying.

  26. Now the Harsh truth will be Spoken

    When you close your eyes do you see
    White lorelei, she's a dream
    She's not half as magic as she seems
    But she's so much fun to be with

    When you close your eyes do you see
    Places that you've never seen
    Yet you've been there
    You've been walking on the edges of a dream
    And you're so much fun to be with

    Big surprise, you've been informed you're not asleep
    Hard as you try you were never really meant to weep

    When you close your door with a sign
    Do not disturd, are you disturbed to find
    That it's just as magic as it feels
    And you're so much fun to be with

    Vinicius S. Oliveira

    Beautiful and depressing, perfect birthday present from Morrissey. Thank you, Moz, our Orpheus. Really enjoying the arrangements on these too, great blend of contemporary and nostalgia.
