Rea, Chris - She Closed Her Eyes Lyrics




She closed her eyes
And let the walls of her prison fall away
The walls that ached with a timeless wait
They had become her walls of this modern tv life
She closed her eyes
And let them fall away
And in her dreams she is standing by an ocean
She is gazing out to sea
She can remember with just a fleeting glimpse
That she was once free
So long ago now, so long it was as if it had never been
Was it a holiday
She thinks it could have been, ah yes, italy

And he closes his eyes
And he is gone far away
Gone from all the confusion
Gone from all the pain
He can easily see what a pointless waste
His modern life has become
Chasing the gravy grain
Chasing the dollar
Chasing the clock
Chasing his male friends
Chasing the boss
Chasing as it was everything
It was nothing

Only the sound of his own breathing was all he had
At the end of the day
And reasons to wonder, reasons to cry
Too late for this selfish sinner who never asked why

  16. Cheyenne Agnes

    Elle a fermé les yeux
    Et laisser tomber les murs de sa prison
    Les murs qui dormaient avec une attente intemporelle
    Ils sont devenus ses murs de cette vie de télévision moderne.

    Elle a fermé les yeux
    Et laissez-les tomber
    Et dans ses rêves, elle est debout près d'un océan
    Elle regarde en mer.

    Elle peut se souvenir avec un aperçu fugace
    Qu'elle était une fois libre
    Il y a si longtemps maintenant, il était si long qu'il était
    Était-ce un jour férié
    Elle pense que cela aurait pu être, ah oui, en Italie.

    Et il ferme ses yeux
    Et il est allé loin
    Éloigné de toute confusion
    Éloigné de toute la douleur
    Il peut facilement voir quel gaspillage inutile
    Sa vie moderne est devenue
    Chasing the gravy grain
    Poursuivre le dollar
    Poursuivre l'horloge
    Chasser ses amis masculins
    Chasser le patron
    Chasing comme c'était tout
    Ce n'était rien.

    Seul le son de sa propre respiration était tout ce qu'il avait
    À la fin de la journée
    Et des raisons de se demander, des raisons de pleurer
    Trop tard pour ce pécheur égoïste qui n'a jamais demandé pourquoi ...

  17. Lara O'neal

    Who never asked why? How sad. I see this everyday and everywhere. I'm always thinking why does no one ever ask WHY. It makes me sad. Chris an empath . So am I. I really believe he is. Love u Chris. 💕💕💕💕😇🕊🙏🏻

  18. Ass!s

    Traz paz à alma!!! Toda vez que ouço lembro da mãe.......Que Deus a tenha em bom lugar !!!

  19. AIRELA HAYK

    Она закрыла глаза
    И позволила стенам исчезнуть.
    В своих мечтах она — у океана,
    Она смотрит в море.
    На секунду она может вспомнить, что
    Когда-то была свободной,
    Но это было настолько давно, словно и не было совсем

    И он закрывает глаза,
    И он уносится прочь в мечтах,
    Он бежит за легкими деньгами,
    Он пытается нагнать время,
    Словно в следовании таится смысл.
    Собственного дыхания звук — все, что у него есть
    К концу дня.
    Но смысла в этом нет никакого.

  20. Yar K.

    Superb!

  21. Tina Rodriguez

    dulce y apropiada en cualquier lugar. El timbre de voz es muy parecido a Leonar Cohen .

  22. Piero Ninurta

  23. magyar tatiana

    ești formidabil Chris,pe când în Timișoara,România te așteptăm cu drag

  24. fsantospalm1

    it is gravy train, not gravy grain

    David Copson

    Aaahh Bisto! You are so right @ fsantospalm1 You can't beat a good mondegreen, though I suspect this is more of a typo? Anyway, just listening to a bit of Hendrix - excuse me while I kiss this guy! Love the song by Chris Rea which I have had in my CD collection for many years. Spoken or not it is a very thought-provoking piece of work from a gifted and prolific singer/songwriter.

  25. Carol Britz
