I Just Close My Eyes, the beautiful single featured on the upcoming release ‘Timeless’ available for Pre-order Friday 2 September, 2022.
I just close my eyes And the words are carried away By the river
What is left behind I can’t say It’s just the sound of water
A breezy, bossa groove underpins a hushed, heartfelt vocal performance by Miten. The sole English lyric on TIMELESS, this song dates from Miten’s time, living in the ashram of the Indian mystic, Osho.
“I Just Close My Eyes’ is composed by one of my fellow ‘Osho’ musicians – Swami Madhuro – and I’ve always loved it,” says Miten. “It’s a very simple chordal structure and the lyric is similar in form to a Zen haiku. Whenever Osho discoursed on the Zen masters, for devotees like me it would be a psychic dive into the deep waters of their teachings. Their wisdom would be reflected in our music.”
