Listen to emerging country star William Michael Morgan's version of the late Keith Whitley's "Don't Close Your Eyes" here!

Rising country star William Michael Morgan‘s deep-voiced, heartfelt, and raw version of “Don’t Close Your Eyes” is a real musical treat! Originally written by Bob McDill and performed by classic country artist Keith Whitely, “Don’t Close Your Eyes” was released in 1988 and reached No.1 on Billboard’s country music charts.

The song has been covered by many artists, including Alan Jackson and Kellie Pickler, for various albums and occasions. Morgan’s version, however, is uncut, impromptu, and definitely worth our attention.

“Don’t Close Your Eyes” Lyrics

I know you loved him
A long time ago
Even now in my arms
You still want him I know
But darling this time
Let your memories die
When you hold me tonight
Don’t close your eyes

Don’t close your eyes
Let it be me
Don’t pretend it’s him
In some fantasy
Darling just once
Let yesterday go
You’ll find more love
Than you’ve ever known
Just hold me tight
When you love me tonight
And don’t close your eyes

Maybe I’ve been a fool
Holding on all this time
Lyin’ here in your arms
Knowing he’s in your mind
But I keep hoping some day
That you’ll see the light
Let it be me tonight
Don’t close your eyes

Don’t close your eyes
Let it be me
Don’t pretend it’s him
In some fantasy
Darling just once
Let yesterday go
You’ll find more love
Than you’ve ever known
Just hold me tight
When you love me tonight
And don’t close your eyes

Don’t close your eyes
Let it be me
Don’t pretend it’s him
In some fantasy
Darling just once
Let yesterday go
You’ll find more love
Than you’ve ever known
Just hold me tight
When you love me tonight
And don’t close your eyes

Just hold me tight
When you love me tonight
And don’t close your eyes
