Open my eyes, so I may see your face.
Open my ears, so I may hear your voice.
Open my heart, that I may love you well.

Close my eyes, so I may not see her.
Close my ears, so I may not hear her laugh.
Close my heart, that I may not love her.

Open my mind, so I may think of you always.
Open my arms, so I may hold you close.
Open my life, that I may live with you.

Close my mind, so I may not think of her.
Close my arms, so I won't reach for her.
Close my life, that I won't live in memory.

For in Darkness I will write these words,
And in Light I will fall again.
For in Darkness I will sing this verse,
And in Light I will kill my own soul.
