Eyes Closed

Album: Hopeless Fountain Kingdom (2017)
  • I, I know where to lay
    I know what to say
    It's all the same
    And I, I know how to play
    I know this game
    It's all the same

    Now if I keep my eyes closed he looks just like you
    But he'll never stay, they never do
    Now if I keep my eyes closed he feels just like you
    But you've been replaced
    I'm face to face with someone new

    Would've gave it all for you, cared for you
    So tell me where I went wrong
    Would've gave it all for you, cared for you
    (My lover, my liar)
    Would've trade it all for you, there for you
    So tell me how to move on
    Would've trade it all for you, cared for you
    (My lover, my liar)

    Now if I keep my eyes closed he looks just like you
    But he'll never stay, they never do
    Now if I keep my eyes closed he feels just like you
    But you've been replaced
    I'm face to face with someone new

    They don't realize that I'm thinking about you
    It's nothing new, it's nothing new

    Now if I keep my eyes closed he looks just like you
    But he'll never stay, they never do
    Now if I keep my eyes closed he feels just like you
    But you've been replaced
    I'm face to face with someone new Writer/s: ABEL TESFAYE, ASHLEY FRANGIPANE, BENJAMIN JOSEPH LEVIN, MAGNUS HOIBERG, NATHAN PEREZ
