Behind Closed Eyes

The weight of the darkness
And the volume of the silence
Are more than you thought you could stand
But the Light that pierced the dark
And the Voice that once spoke
Just hurt too much to understand
You turned away, it was too much to see
You closed your eyes to eternity

But behind closed eyes
Is a soul bent and broken
A pain left unspoken
Behind closed eyes
Is a world full of fears
A lake of unshed tears
And a life lived in lies
Behind closed eyes

You tell yourself that you didnít see
And that you still donít realize
What the Light came to show
You canít let yourself believe
That you could be that way
And you didnít want to know
So you turned away, tried not to see
What you saw in the Light of eternity

But behind closed eyes
Is a soul bent and broken
A pain left unspoken
Behind closed eyes
Is a world full of fears
A lake of unshed tears
And a life lived in lies
Behind closed eyes

The Light came
To give and to redeem
To cleanse away everything
That you didnít want to see
To give you eternity

ĎCause behind closed eyes
Is a soul bent and broken
A pain left unspoken
Behind closed eyes
Is a world full of fears
A lake of unshed tears
And a life lived in lies
Behind closed eyes
