NATACHA ATLAS | When I Close My Eyes

LYRICS:

[Arabic part]

And I see you there when I close my eyes
And I see you there when I close my eyes

You're shining in my eyes
Walking on my ocean
Sailing in my skies every time I drift, oh

You're shining in my eyes
Walking on my ocean
Sailing in my skies every time I see you there
When I close my eyes
And I see you there when I close my eyes

[Arabic part]

And I see you there when I close my eyes
And I see you there when I close my eyes

Rain's coming down and I listen to the sound
Of your voice in my head
Like you've never been away
And it's all I can do
I keep falling into you
When my blood's running blue
Like a never-ending day

Rain's coming down and I listen to the sound
Of your voice in my head
Like you've never been away
And it's all I can do
I keep falling into you
When my blood's running blue
Like a never-ending day

[Arabic part]

And I see you there when I close my eyes
And I see you there when I close my eyes
And I see you there when I close my eyes
And I see you there when I close my eyes

REVIEWS:
x By far the best song on the album (...) is the irresistible "When I Close My Eyes," beginning with Mid-Eastern strings and moving into haunting vocals from Natacha set to a soft and steady beat, punctuated by Myra Boyle's sweetly breathy, very elfin-sounding chorus. It's the kind of track you'll want to put on repeat. Mohamad Khan

x (...) the stand-out "When I Close My Eyes" (...) should be a single, with its head-nodding beat, and beautiful interloping vocals between Atlas and Myra Boyle. Gentry Boeckel

x 'When I Close My Eyes' is a another memorable track. Myra Boyle is also on vocals, and it's another great combination. Kara Kellar Bell
