Close Your Eyes

It took a week full of Mondays
And every Monday it rained
I fought the law and the dull
And got nothing but pain
I got twisted up and low
A little insane
I watched everything I love
Just circle the drain

Close your eyes
Then you'll see
It was all
Just a dream

I bought a car in Wilmington
I said goodbye to my friends
I said "Things will be different
when I see you again"
Well we hugged and talked,
The smallest talk
It started raining in the rear-view
as they shuffled off

Close your eyes
Then you'll see
It was all
Just a dream

Now there's a lot of bodies
By the side of the road
Careful who's driving
You don't wanna be a ghost
Now it won't always be easy
But it won't always be hard
Just listen to the cracks
In your broken heart

And close your eyes
Then you'll see
It was all
Just a dream

It took a week full of Mondays
And every Monday it rained
I fought the law and the dull
And got nothing but pain
Yeah home is where the hurt is
So I’m writing this down
Don’t think I didn’t love you
I just didn’t wanna drown
