close your eyes lyrics – carrie newcomer

i believe we’re born good from the start
and we come equipped with a piece of god in our hearts
but the world exacts a hard and bitter cost
and some of us get oh so very lost
close your eyes
your heart knows why
and what’s the truth
and what’s the lie
through each mistake and every old regret
and every hope that hasn’t come through yet
i still believe though it’s crazy that i might
and like a diamond shines each bit of light
close your eyes
your heart knows why
and what’s the truth
and what’s the lie
so how i got this job i’ll never know
but when it calls you can’t refuse to go
so most of us just do the best we can
and in this stumbling world just try to stand
close your eyes
your heart knows why
and what’s the truth
and what’s the lie
