About the song
What comes first, the music or the words? It's not an exact science with us. We usually have some kind of vocal melody in mind, other times we have some music bits and the words come immediately once we're laying down the tracks. This time it was different. We fleshed out all the music but couldn't come up the right words.

So Rick and Teri got together with the tape a few days later and, somehow, it all came far easier.
Lyrics
You try to run but you just cannot hide
There's no escape when it's this deep inside
Why can't you close your eyes and make it go away

There's more to this than I will let you know
And more emotions than you'll ever show
There's no tomorrow if you can't get through today

That's why I'm telling you
Don't Close Your Eyes in the Dark
You keep forgetting that dreaming will tear you apart
That's why I'm telling you
Don't Close Your Eyes in the Dark

Sometimes it's better to ignore than feel
A broken promise takes too long to heal
That's why it's hard to tell what's wrong from what is right

So in the end you're not too sure
How many sleepless nights you can endure
There'll be no morning if you can't get through tonight

That's why I'm telling you
Don't Close Your Eyes in the Dark
You keep forgetting that dreaming will tear you apart

Make it go Away

And in the end you find you're not too sure
How many sleepless nights you can endure
There'll be no morning if you can't get through tonight

That's why I'm telling you
Don't Close Your Eyes in the Dark
