Don't Close Your Eyes Lyrics - Keith Whitley



Review The Song (7)


I know you loved him
A long time ago
Even now in my arms
You still want him I know
But darling this time
Let your memories die
When you hold me tonight
Don't close your eyes

Don't close your eyes
Let it be me
Don't pretend it's him
In some fantasy
Darling just once
Let yesterday go
You'll find more love
Than you've ever known
Just hold me tight
When you love me tonight
And don't close your eyes

Maybe I've been a fool
Holding on all this time
Lyin' here in your arms
Knowing he's in your mind
But I keep hoping some day
That you'll see the light
Let it be me tonight
Don't close your eyes

Don't close your eyes
Let it be me
Don't pretend it's him
In some fantasy
Darling just once
Let yesterday go
You'll find more love
Than you've ever known
Just hold me tight
When you love me tonight
And don't close your eyes

Don't close your eyes
Let it be me
Don't pretend it's him
In some fantasy
Darling just once
Let yesterday go
You'll find more love
Than you've ever known
Just hold me tight
When you love me tonight
And don't close your eyes

Just hold me tight
When you love me tonight
And don't close your eyes

About Keith Whitley... | Reviewer: Daniel | 8/9/2007

Bob McDill wrote this song 'Don't Close Your Eyes.'
Keith Whitley made the song his.
He is a legend and will never die.
If you want something that he wrote and a song that sums up his music, his life, and his passion, listen to 'Wherever You Are Tonight.'
Keith Whitley could have been the best ever, and was in my opinion for the time that he was here...thanx Keith for your love of music.

last night at a local karaoke show I was introduced to the author of this song. He
wrote it when he was just 16 years old
His first name is Eric and he still enjoys writing and performing this tune on a regular basis

Don't close your eyes | Reviewer: Helen A | 7/10/2007

Keith Whitley had a voice that simply does not come along very often, maybe ever 50 years. George Jones had a song out called There's nothing better once you've had the best. Well Keith Whitley was the best in the 1980's & no one has even come close to his voice & it is now 2007, what a tribute & legend this sweet souls voice really was. Iam so fortunate to have lived in this time to hear him. He is truly missed by me.

Favorite song | Reviewer: christy | 1/1/2005

I've been listening to country since I was 15. I'm 22, and still a country fan, and this has to be the best song ever written. It is probably the best love song of all times. Keith Whitley was truely a geneous for this song.
