Close My Eyes Lyrics - Mariah Carey
Review The Song (9)
I was 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
But I closed my eyes
Steadied my feet on the ground
Raised my head to the sky
And though time's rolled by
Still feel like a 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 worst unsaid
Let it all dissipate
And I try to forget
Nearing the edge
Obvious 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
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)

Beautiful Song | Reviewer: Stephanie | 11/22/11
I have loved this song since first hearing it on my then cassette tape. I have since converted to all cds of course. This song is so touching and real. It gets to me everytime I hear it. If you will also enjoy Petals, Butterfly, Outside and Vanishing.
best writter | Reviewer: max | 3/11/10
mariah in my opinion is one of the best writers to ever make music. her lyrics are so smooth and relatable it's astonishing. she gets the message of the song to match the music perfectly. i think her writing has been weak recently, but no one can take her amazing career from her. she was the best.
Review | Reviewer: Chiaki | 8/1/08
This song really reflects in a way Mariah, herself, is the only one who can pull it off. The lyrics really touch my heart, even though through my contradictional paradox. The many poetic phrases and soothing words, are amazing. "Close My Eyes", is a song anybody would love to hear through their hard-ships.
Gifted In Voice and Writting | Reviewer: Allie | 1/5/08
It's hard to write a song about a topic like this but Mariah pulled it off amazing. Not only did she get the message of the song out, but the song suits its lyrics. Which is something alot of artists are lacking today. Her vocals in here are calm, whispery, giving the image of freedom, summer freedom.
She's gifted. 'Nough said
long time fave | Reviewer: Rogue | 12/23/07

New song... | Reviewer: Alex | 11/26/07
This song is new to me. This girl whom I love has a severe affection for this song, so I am going to turn it into a piano solo, and play it for her.
Lyrics | Reviewer: David | 9/26/07
Mariah usually uses not-so-common words and phrases in her songs which makes it great and unique like in this song among many others - wayward, dissipate, on the verge, steadied my feet
amazing | Reviewer: Carl | 6/5/07
besides being an incredible song, it´s pure poetry. the lyrics are one of Mariah´s best.
Sweet | Reviewer: Danielle | 5/3/07
I love it. I can relate to the song a lot. I'm 17 years young. :)
