blue eyes lyrics – within temptation

blue eyes

blue eyes just smile to the world
full of dreams and with fascination
too soon she saw that her hands were chained
and pulled without any freedom

it’s always the same
the fear, no way out
i cannot break it
i can take it no more

it’s burning me up inside
lost all my tears can’t cry
no reason, no meaning
just hatred.
no matter how hard i try
you fear the beast inside
it’s growing, it’s waiting
just to hurt you.

this heart was hurt by the light
and i see your world that tries to deny us
now everything that i love has died
or has been shattered to pieces

it’s always the same
the fear, no way out
i cannot break it
i can take it no more.

it’s burning me up inside
lost all my tears can’t cry
no reason, no meaning
just hatred.
no matter how hard i try
you fear the beast inside
it’s growing, it’s waiting
just to hurt you.

can’t you see their eyes, what lies inside?
they’ve given up, they no longer shine
too soon they’ll close with one last cry
before they turn to white.

it’s burning me up inside
lost all my tears can’t cry
no reason, no meaning
just hatred.
no matter how hard i try
you fear the beast inside
it’s growing, it’s waiting
just to hurt you.
