Even with Closed Eyes

Lyrics by Leslie I. Benson 2009

Brush the dust from out of my eyes;
they’ve seen much from traveling wide.
Come so far to meet you here,
and though I’m weary, I want to see you clearly.

I lift the veil from my eyes,
though I’m bleeding from the inside.
Your sins don’t make you a man.
Your head’s guiding what your heart’s denying.

(You’re) within my reach, but unreachable;
within my grasp, but ungraspable. I want
to understand you,
but I don’t even know you.

So I trace the lines of your face;
each contour has its place—
bone, jaw, skin and lips,

each one with my fingertips.

Forget the world that you know;
stop holding on. Let go.
You’re no different than me, ’cause

even with closed eyes, I see.

Even with closed eyes, I see you.
Even with closed eyes, I see you.
Even with closed eyes, I see you.

You’re within my reach, but unreachable;
within my grasp, but ungraspable. I want
to understand you,
but I don’t even know you.

So I trace the lines of your face;
each contour has its place—
bone, jaw, skin and lips,

each one with my fingertips.

Forget the world that you know;
stop holding on. Let go.
You’re no different than me, ’cause

even with closed eyes, I see.

Even with closed eyes, I see you.
Even with closed eyes, I see you.
Even with closed eyes, I see you.
