  • What's you're doing out in the night time
    Won't you call me on the phone
    Your mama can't solve your problem
    When's daddy ever get home

    So you think you're a little bit wild
    In the middle of the suicide

    Don't close your eyes
    Don't close your eyes
    Don't sing your last lullaby

    No one there to hold you
    No one is your friend
    You live life up and down now
    Nightmares on your brain

    Another lonely way of hanging round
    Don't you take it falling down no no

    Hold on hold on tight
    I'll make everything all right
    Wake up don't go asleep
    I'll pray the lord
    Your soul to keep

    Don't close your eyes
    Don't close your eyes
    Don't sing your last lullaby

    Don't close your eyes
    Don't close your eyes
    Don't sing your last lullaby Writer/s: DONALD KEVIN PURNELL, JOHN PALUMBO, ROBERT HALLIGAN

  • Lml Fm Bmore from Bmore MdTo NOT DAN from NOT OH - Listen to COLD BLOOD and then reconsider. Sounds like the CRUE to me but hey what do I know?
  • Wondering from MdWas Don’t Close your eyes in a movie?
  • Not Dan from Not OhioSorry, Dan. Kix and Crue sound nothing alike. Like, at all.
  • Omega-man from U.s.All these years I thought that it was about an accidental overdose of drugs.
  • Dan from IdahoI wonder if anyone else thought that this song sounded like it was done by Motley Crue?
  • Virginia Ramirez from Canoga Park, CaI loved this song when it was released in 89' at uh, 19! Now a few years later I've included it in my music library (sans cassette tape!) Glad to know that I still love it just as much! Nothin' like a good one-hit-wonder!
