[Intro]
Am  G  F  Am


[Verse]
Am
Baby, I get so scared inside
      G
and I don't really understand
      F                                Am
Is it love that's on my mind, or is it fantasy
Am
Heaven, is in the palm of my hand
         G
and it's waiting here for you
        F                                 Am
What am I supposed to do with a childhood tragedy


[Chorus]
F                        Am     F
   If I close my eyes forever
                     Am
Will it all remain unchanged?
                      Am
If I close my eyes forever
                       G
Will it all remain the same?


[Verse]
Am
Sometimes, it's hard to hold on
           G
So hard to hold on to my dreams
         F
It isn't always what is seems
                    Am
When you're face to face with me
              Am
You're like a dagger
                          G
And stick me in the heart

And taste the blood from my blade
    F
And when we sleep, would you shelter me
        Am
In your warm and darkened grave


[Chorus]
F                        Am     F
   If I close my eyes forever
                     Am
Will it all remain unchanged?
                      Am
If I close my eyes forever
                       G
Will it all remain the same?


[Bridge]
A#                        Gm
   Will you ever take me?
                         Dm   C  A#
No I just can’t take the pain
                        Gm
will you ever trust me?
                       Dm   A
No I'll never feel the same, oh


[Solo]
A#  Gm  Dm  C
A#  Gm  Dm  A


[Verse]
Am                     G           F
   I know I've been so hard to you
                     Am
I know I've told you lies
Am                   G              F
If I could have just one more wish
                             Am
I'd wipe the cobwebs from my eyes


[Chorus]
F                        Am    F
   If I close my eyes forever
                     Am
Will it all remain unchanged?
                      Am
If I close my eyes forever
                       G
Will it all remain the same?


[Outro]
Am
Close your eyes
G
Close your eyes
          F                  Am
You gotta close you eyes for me
