lyrics

Try to open my eyes a bit
Sky Nelson October 2018

Verse (Bb)
We sit in darkness quietly
Surrounded by a boiling sea
And I, just try to open my eyes a bit
for what I've seen there are no words
The depth of how a soul can hurt so I,
just try to open my eyes a bit
Chorus
Here in the dark, I will peel back the layers of my heart
I’ll stay with you, and we’ll open to the feelings that come through
...me and you
Verse
If you take the chance to say what’s true, do you fear I’ll turn my back on you instead, of try to open my eyes a bit?
Will I try to see the things you do
With a little bit more room to move
as I, try to open my eyes a bit?


Chorus
Here in the dark, I will peel back the layers of my heart
I’ll stay with you, and we’ll open to the feelings that come through
...here with you
Bridge
Although we come from different lives
I’ll set my history aside to see your point of view
cuz under your suspicious words I hear the ways that you’ve been hurt
I want to know the way things were for you
Chorus
Here in the dark, I will peel back the layers of my heart
I’ll stay with you, and we’ll open to the feelings that come through
...me and you
Verse
I See the Light grow steadily
it's coming from inside of me
and I, I try to open my eyes
