SYNC REPRESENTATION FOR THE MASTER RIGHTS.

We are proud to represent ‘We Close Our Eyes‘ for sync. This is the re-record of their hit single and the band own the masters.

Go West is the debut album by the English pop duo Go West, released in 1985. The album brought Go West into the limelight, scoring them a string of top 20 hits in the UK and New Zealand. “We Close Our Eyes” was the most successful single, reaching #1 in New Zealand and #5 in the UK. It features the band’s enjoyable, new wave-inflected ’80s dance-pop.

Go West had been writing songs for the album since 1982, when they were formed in London by Peter Cox and Richard Drummie. Two songs featured on the album, “We Close Our Eyes” and “Call Me“, helped Go West land a record deal with Chrysalis Records.

The album featured more Top 10 UK/NZ hits than any of their other albums and helped them to be voted the “Best Newcomers” at the 1986 Brit Awards.

With a musical style that blends rock, conventional pop, synth pop, and blue-eyed soul, Go West has been responsible for hits such as “Call Me”, “Faithful”, “King Of Wishful Thinking” and “One Way Street” (from the original motion picture soundtrack of “Rocky Part 4″).

We Close Our Eyes’ (Lyrics)

Inside everyone hides one desire
Out side no one would know
Danger close to the edge of the knife
Safer not to let go

And while
We miss chances
You can almost hear
Time slipping away

We close our eyes, we never lose a game
Imagination never lets us take the blame
We close our eyes to see the final frame
We close our eyes to time slipping away

No show, Wednesday girl waits with the wine
She knows just what to say
While no one listen
You can almost hear time slipping away

We close our eyes we never lose a game
Imagination never lets us take the blame
We close our eyes to see the final frame
We close our eyes and we can talk to strangers

We are burning with the spark
And we can walk on water
We are tigers in the dark
We are burning, we close our eyes

Heroes never give in to the night
He knows how far he can run
And as he surrenders
You can almost hear time slipping away

We close our eyes, we never lose a game
Imagination never lets us take the blame
We close our eyes to see the final frame
We close our eyes

We close our eyes, we never lose a game
Imagination never lets us take the blame
We close our eyes to see the final frame

We walk on water
We are burning
Talk to strangers
