#SongLyricSunday | Don’t Close Your Eyes Tonight – John Denver


Song Lyric Sunday banner


Song Lyric Sunday is hosted by Helen Vahdati over at This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and all the rules can be found here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “pretending”.  

As always, you can go your own way and post a song that has nothing to do with the prompt.  We’re all here sharing our love of music and lyrics, and most of all, having a great time!

Helen is teaming up with Simply Marquessa and this week’s SLS theme was inspired by her weekly #LyricalFictionFriday theme: “I think it’s so sweet…how you let your friends encourage you to try and talk to me…but let me stop you there…” from the song NO by Meghan Trainor.

 


“Don’t Close Your Eyes Tonight”
Written by Frank John Musker, Richard Kerr

There’s a tenderness that I feel, very real you see. I can feel your body stir, so deep within.
Let it be an act of love tonight, completely. Let me ask of you one thing:
Don’t close your eyes tonight. Just look at me, and see how many times I cried for you.
Don’t close your eyes tonight. Let it be me, not just a fantasy, let it be me tonight.

You can lie so close to someone and still feel all alone.
Although I’ve heard you say you love me so many times.
When you give me love so beautiful and tender, someone else is in your mind.
Don’t close your eyes tonight. Just look at me, and see how many times I cried for you.
Don’t close your eyes tonight. Let it be me, not just a fantasy, let it be me tonight.

Sorry if I cry, feelings run so deep.
Many is the time when I wake up and find I’ve been crying in my sleep.
Look me in the eye, tell me what you see,
I’m the one who loves you, I’m the one who needs you, make this one for me.

Don’t close your eyes tonight. Just look at me, and see how many times I cried for you.
Don’t close your eyes tonight. Let it be me, not just a fantasy, let it be me tonight.
Don’t close your eyes tonight. Just look at me, and see how many times I cried for you.
Don’t close your eyes tonight. Let it be me, not just a fantasy, let it be me tonight.

  1. Another good one! I’ve never heard this song, but you can’t go wrong with John Denver, yet another tragic loss to the music industry. I still remember when his plane went down, it was a shock to all his fans. You’d think they’d learn, but look at how many amazing artists we’ve lost to those little planes. There should be a policy that If you’re a famous musician, you just don’t get into anything smaller than a leer jet!
