Britney cover of Mariah's Close My Eyes?


Recommended Posts

New here, first post. Hope this isn't too random! I was listening to Mariah's 1997 Butterfly album the other day and remembered how much I love the song Close My Eyes. I'd love to hear Britney cover this song. Seems like it's sung in a lower register, closer to what Britney does best and the lyrics/theme of the song I think are so relable. It's melancholy but hopeful. I'm pasting the lyrics here too. Thoughts? Too random?! 


I was wayward child

With the weight of the world

That I held deep inside

Life was a winding road

And I learned many things

Little ones shouldn't know



But I closed my eyes

Steadied my feet on the ground

Raised my head to the sky

And though time's rolled by

Still feel like a child

As I look at the moon

Maybe I grew up

A little too soon


Funny how one can learn

To grow numb to the madness

And block it away

I left the worst unsaid

Let it all dissipate

And I try to forget




Nearing the edge

Obvious I almost

Fell right over

A part of me

Will never be quite able

To feel stable

That woman-child falling inside

Was on the verge of fading

Thankfully I

Woke up in time


Guardian angel I

Sail away on an ocean

With you by my side

Orange clouds roll by

They burn into your image

And you're still alive

(You're always alive)
