    Name that song "close your eyes"

    I'd like to know the identity of a song, it's from the 80's or before and has slow lyrics. Unfortunately the only sentences I know are: "close your eyes" "moon and stars". The two sentences are right after each other and are sung really slowly (I guess sadly):
    Cloooooose your eeeeeeyeeeehiiiiiiiiiieeeeeiiiiiieees, [through the?] moooooooon and staaaaahaaaars.

    Ok, that looks silly :smile: does it ring a bell to anyone? I've tried google and youtube.

    Is it 'End of May'?

    Close your eyes, and roll a dice,
    Under the board, there's a compromise...

    Thanks for the thought, but not the right song.

    Is it from "To the Moon"?

    Or perhaps Bananarama Starz:

    but it looks like there is no youtube version.

    Are you sure it is actually "close your eyes"?

    There is that Roberta Flack classic "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" that goes:

    I thought the sun rose in your eyes
    And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave

    You're great, that's it! I heard a sample of the song on television yesterday and I was sure that the lyric was "close your eyes", this relates to the recent thread on understanding English lyrics: I definitely pay more attention to the melody than to the words :biggrin:

    Great to hear it after so many years and actually understanding what it was about. It was played at my granddad's funeral, probably I should've mentioned it. The Beatles -all my loving- and Aerosmith aren't quite the right genre :smile: But mystery solved, against all odds!
