lyrics

WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES

Remember when we woke up at the crack of dawn
and gathered walnuts among the autumn leaves
When little Jay made it thru the barb-wire fence
and fell into the wild horse out back
You chased that horse down
You chased him like mad and he ran away

I love you
Love you
Love you
So dearly

And I miss you
Miss you
Miss you
Severely

I miss the way you were with me
Assured & calm & fair
It seems to me
I lost you when I needed you most

I miss you
Miss you
Miss you
So dearly

Yet I can see you
See you
See you
So clearly

I see your face in dreams at night
Or when I'm by myself
It seems to me
You're closest when I close my eyes

But I still see you
If only in my dreams
Yes I still see you
If only in my dreams
(2x)

I love you
Love you
Love you
So dearly

And I miss you
Miss you
Miss you
Please speak to me

Please tell me things you haven't told
and things I have forgot
Please tell me how
To be strong when you're not around

don't it always seem to go
that you don't know what you've got till it's gone

about

Jamal Traub Chattanooga, Tennessee

I was just a boy
Grew up in the grass
Biking down a dirt road
Falling from a tree
& scraping my knee

It's all coming back to me now
