Open Up Your Eyes Lyrics

A single rose left to remember
As a single tear falls from her eye
Another cold day in December
A year from the day she said goodbye

Seems it's only been a moment
Since the angels took him from her arms
And she was left there holding on to their tomorrow
But as they laid him in the ground
Her heart would sing without a sound

For the first time you can open your eyes
And see the world without your sorrow
Where no one knows the pain you left behind
And all the peace you could never find
Is waiting there to hold and keep you
Welcome to the first day of your life
Just open up your eyes

A single lifetime lays behind her
As she draws her final breath
Just beyond the door he'll find her
Taking her hand she softly says

For the first time you can open your eyes
And see the world without your sorrow
Where no one knows the pain you left behind
And all the peace you could never find
Is waiting there to hold and keep you
Welcome to the first day of your life

Just open up your eyes as I lay you down tonight
Safe on the other side, no more tears to cry

For the first time you can open your eyes
And see the world without your sorrow
Where no one knows the pain you left behind
And all the peace you could never find
Is waiting there to hold and keep you
Welcome to the first day of your life

I almost lost my love a year ago and I fell into a deep, dark abyss of depression, but everything turned out okay. or so I thought. he died week later. I miss him and long to be with him. R.I.P

I lost my wife over a year ago in December. She suffered from depression. For me, this song means leaving behind the pains of a difficult relationship due to depression and her being free of her pain

This song is just amazing, and it brings hope to those who have lost a loved one, that at the ends of our days they're going to be waiting for us on the other side. We just have to keep living

Everytime I hear this song I can't help feeling that god took my daughter too soon. This song makes me miss her even more and makes me realise no one will ever replace her.

The line 'A single lifetime lays behind her' means she has carried on with her life and lived it but now it is her time to go she will get to be with the one she loves forever. Thats how I look at it.
