Clay Walker Dreaming With My Eyes Open Lyrics

Last updated: 02/21/2011 10:00:00 AM

I spent half my life on bended knee
Begging somebody to change
And the other half prayin' to God
That they never would

And all it got me was twice as lost
When it all turned out the same
But all that beggin' finally did somebody good

I used to dream all night
Of the day that was gone
But come the mornin' light
Forever from now on

Gonna do my dreamin'
With my eyes wide open
I'll do my looking back
With my eyes closed

We can do some livin'
Or spend our whole life hopin'
'Cause in the end we're left with
The one we chose

So, I'll do my dreaming
With my eyes wide open

Every time the world moved on
I fell a little further behind
From runnin' back
Or followin' someone home

Till I learned that one step forward
Will take you further on
Than a thousand back
Or a million that ain't your own

I used to dream all night
Of the day that was gone
But come the mornin' light
Forever from now on

Gonna do my dreamin'
With my eyes wide open
I'll do my looking back
With my eyes closed

We can do some livin'
Or spend our whole life hopin'
But in the end we're left with
The one we chose

So, I'll do my dreaming
With my eyes wide open

We can do some livin'
Or spend our whole life hopin'
'Cause in the end we're left with
The one we chose

So, I'll do my dreaming
With my eyes wide open
