Close My Eyes by Sophie McKenzieWhen Geniver Loxley lost her daughter at birth eight years ago, her world stopped… and never fully started again. Mothers with strollers still make her flinch; her love of writing has turned into a half-hearted teaching career; and she and her husband, Art, have slipped into the kind of rut that seems inescapable.
But then a stranger shows up on their doorstep, telling Gen the very thing she’s always wanted to hear: that her daughter Beth was not stillborn, but was taken away as a healthy infant and is still out there, somewhere, waiting to be found. It’s insane, unbelievable. But why would anyone make that up? A fissure suddenly opens up in Gen’s carefully reconstructed life, letting in a flood of unanswerable questions. Where is Beth now? Why is Art so reluctant to get involved? To save his wife from further hurt? Or is it something more sinister? And who can she trust to help her?
Ignoring the warnings of her husband and friends, Gen begins to delve into the dark corners of her past, hopeful she’ll find a clue to her daughter’s whereabouts. But hope quickly turns into fear and paranoia, as she realizes that finding the answers might open the door to something even worse than not knowing. A truth that could steal everything she holds close – even her own life.

Close My Eyes lyrics
In , a musical film called The Greatest Showman debuted with a wonderful song list. A notable song in the lineup is called A Million Dreams, which stood out for me due to the optimistic lyrics and it taps into the dreamer that exists in all of us. However big, however small Let me be part of it all Share your dreams with me You may be right, you may be wrong But say that you're bring me along To the world you see To the world I close my eyes to see I close my eyes to see. Every night I lie in bed The brightest colors fill my head A million dreams are keeping me awake A million dreams, a million dreams I think of what the world could be A vision of the one I see A million dreams is all it's gonna take A million dreams for the world we're gonna make For the world we're gonna make. I love music, I love the lyrics, I love how the sound resonates in my body, and I love to sing. I was playing this song last night while loading the dishwasher and my son was playing quietly on the floor. I stopped in my tracks and looked at my 5-year-old son and felt a loss for words.

A Million Dreams Lyrics: I close my eyes and I can see / A world that's 'Cause every night I lie in bed Each one there to make you smile.

A Million Dreams Lyrics
And I never had much money I never been quite satisfied But you can weave the unraveled strings And you ease my worried mind You ease my worried mind. Hallelujah Band I stood next to the tracks Just to feel something pushing back Tearing through each doubt and sin The train was an iron wind. I climbed down underground To listen for a new sound Found a river underneath our feet Dark and silent, deep. I stood next to the tracks Just to feel something pushing back Tearing through each doubt and sin The train was an iron wind. I return every last time With a strong and a hopeful heart But under a mocking blue sky Somehow it all just crumbles apart Oh it all just crumbles apart. He watches on the edge Dirty coat, shaggy mane Too wild for this world, Too tame for mustangs. Grew up in the desert In the lost part of the state Cut our teeth on promises And empty plates.
