Close My Eyes - Gloria Estefan

If I could just close my eyes
See just what I wanted to see
It would be much easier to live this life,
Thinking that it never really comes down to me

Sometimes I wanna close my eyes
So I can't see time while it's slipping away
We're all walking a very fine line
Until reality is somehow thrown in our face

Bury it deep and maybe you won't feel the pain
But you can't let it go
Down the line it will be back again

If we could all close our eyes
To all the things we know that are wrong
We could live selfishly protected lives
Not even thinking about what we could have done

Say it's not there and maybe it will go away
But the thruth is it won't
Down the line it will be back again

Anf rather than examine it
I think I better handle it
What good is it to close my eyes
Or tell myself another lie
Gotta get along somehow and sometimes it's easier

Sometimes I have to close my eyes
And let you think you can make a fool out of me
But I set myself up each time
By trusting you so openly

But that's the way I wanna be,
That's the way I wanna be
