when i open my eyes lyrics – across the sky

a hand to hold
is often hard to see
and i cannot
deny you’re reaching out to me
the day is gone
and still i know you’re near
and i’ve got nothing to fear
when i open my eyes
you’re the first thing i see
a vision once clouded
i feel your presence over me
when the sun comes up
’til i fall asleep at night
i know you’ll be there
when i open my eyes
now granted…
i’ve been here a time or two
i’ve learned, i’ve lived
and now i’ve learned again
i pray that i…
i might become like you
i’ve got nothing to lose
when i open my eyes
you’re the first thing i see
a vision once clouded
i feel your presence over me
when the sun comes up
’til i fall asleep at night
i know you’ll be there
when i open my eyes
your love is like the ocean
it never stops rolling in
you are my world
i can’t survive without you
with you it’s all surrender
in that i find such peace
tell me this is no dream, yah…
when i open my eyes
oh lord, i feel your presence over me
from when the sun comes up
’til i fall asleep at night
i know you’ll be there
i know that you’ll be there…
when i open my eyes
you’re the first thing i see
a vision once clouded
i feel your presence over me
when the sun comes up
’til i fall asleep at night
i know you’ll be there
when i open my eyes
