When I Close My Eyes

I'm almost halfway there. 

----
I am afraid that tomorrow might be the same as today
I'm hesitant to step out of this familiar place of comfort
I'm struggling to keep up with the pace that this fast lane is going
And I know that it's far from slowing down

*When I close my eyes just one more time
Twenty years may have gone by
When I close my eyes just one more time
I might still be me inside

I am ashamed of the past that I'm reliving every day
I need grace to erase all the guilt of yesterday
I want love to cover me and say that it's gonna be okay
And I'll stop and feel the pain wash away

I want to have lived
I want to have loved
I want to have lived to say that I have loved
I want to have loved

When I close my eyes just one more time
Twenty years may have gone by
When I close my eyes just one more time
Maybe I might find me inside
