even with my eyes closed lyrics – 10000 maniacs

even with my eyes closed
funny how i know
it’s harder, it’s harder now

young girl
in my young girl days
thinkin’ i could live for always

but like an ocean tide
i’m drawn back inside
and i know

seasons p*ss
like sand inside a gl*ss
and nothing, nothing returns

standing with the friends i’ve made
i’ll race them to the grave
well who won, won the extra days?

but like an ocean tide
i’m drawn back inside
like an ocean tide
(ohh ohh ohh)
i’m drawn back inside
and i know

when you take away the years toll
on the waters wide, shallow high and low
in the autumn sky
happy to know i’m going home

even with my eyes closed
funny, how i know
it’s finally, has it finally begun?

ocean tide
(ohh ohh ohh)
drawn back inside
but like an ocean tide
(ohh ohh ohh)
drawn back inside

and i know
ohh and i know
and i know
