I wrote Close My Eyes to sing to Amy during our wedding. This is the fourth, completely rewritten version of the song – the country version. I was a little nervous about getting it right, making sure it sounded like how I felt and conveyed what I meant. When we played it during the wedding, I sang to her and amazingly didn’t forget any of the words.
The refrain is simple: “I love you.” Nice, huh? My sister, Sharon, and our dear friend Wendy Hinkle were singing backup during the song (how cool are they for doing that?!?) and each time we sang this refrain they declared their love for Amy… and giggled.
I’m not going to post the lyrics. They’re just for Amy and don’t make any sense if you’re not her.
