open up your eyes lyrics – daughtry

“open up your eyes”

a single rose left to remember
as a single tear falls from her eye
another cold day in december
a year from the day she said goodbye

seems it’s only been a moment
since the angels took him from her arms
and she was left there holding on to their tomorrow
but as they laid him in the ground
her heart would sing without a sound

for the first time you can open your eyes
and see the world without your sorrow
and no one knows the pain you left behind
and all the peace you could never find
is waiting there to hold and keep you
welcome to the first day of your life
just open up your eyes

a single lifetime lays behind her
as she draws her final breath
just beyond the door he’ll find her
taking her hand he softly says


just open up your eyes as i lay you down tonight
safe on the other side, no more tears to cry
