2. Walking With My Eyes Closed

Song Sketch Intro:
I think we all go through dry spells when we don't turn to God's Word for our daily sustenance and we thirst for the want of abiding in Him deeply.  I was in one of those seasons when I wrote this song.

Verse 1

It’s been days since I turned to where the answers are
It’s been weeks since I stopped … and asked for direction
Seems like God and my friends are very far away
I’m feeling lost
And lonely
And in need of connection
It’s almost like I’ve been…

CHORUS

WALKING WITH MY EYES CLOSED
Unsure of where I’m going
WALKING WITH MY EYES CLOSED
Feeling without knowing
God gave me two eyes to see
If I don’t use them the blame’s on me
He put His Word in my hand and in my heart
So I don’t have to be in the dark
WALKING WITH MY EYES CLOSED

Verse 2

My footprints make circles in the sand
I might as well be standing still
I’m ending up where I don’t belong, again
Grasping at the air
In need of reflection
Lost my sense of where I am…

CHORUS

I’m feeling lost
And lonely
And in need of connection
It’s almost like I’ve been… 

CHORUS
