Petra Berger - Close your eyes
Muziek: Gabriel Fauré, Jeroen Englebert en Pim Koopman
(2001)






Close your eyes, the children are asleep
The night will surely keep my Queen
Close your eyes, to tides that run too deep
I know sometimes you weep unseen
While you dream, the treason and the fear
Will all but disappear, subside
Close your eyes, the evening’s still and clear
The fight is nowhere near tonight



Dream of when you were the brightest star in all of France
Dream of when you were the celebrated young dauphine
Mistress of every dance
The most benign young queen they’d ever seen



Close your eyes, deny them how you feel
Unlock your chains and heal your heart
Close your eyes, remember love was real
For memories they can’t steal or guard
While you sleep, though death may pass you by
He’ll never slip inside unseen
Dry your eyes and hold your head up high
They wouldn’t dare defy their Queen



When the demons appear
We’ll rise and fight
We’ll run
We’ll hide



Try to sleep, don’t cry, just sleep
Don’t think, don’t be sorry, don’t feel sad
I know how worried you are for your son
He’ll be just fine
Just fine



Dry your eyes, they’ll take you to the king
You’ll hear the churchbells ring, my Queen
Close your eyes and let your heart take wing
You’ll hear the angels sing
Be free



Close your eyes
