"We Close Our Eyes" is a song by British pop band Go West, composed by both members Peter Cox and Richard Drummie. Recognizable by its synthesizer hook, it was the first single from their début album Go West.

The single was promoted by a music video directed by Godley & Creme. This video included the band members performing the song in front of dancing wooden dolls.

In April 1985, the single was discussed by Molly Meldrum and Queen singer Freddie Mercury on the Australian music show Countdown. Mercury was impressed and predicted the band would be "very, very big".

The "Total Overhang Club Mix" was later included on the 1985 compilation Bangs & Crashes. The standard version appeared again on Aces and Kings: The Best of Go West in 1993.

"We Close Our Eyes" spent fourteen weeks on the UK Singles Chart, peaking at number 5 in April 1985. In the United States, the single reached 41 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 5 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart.

A remix of the song was released in 1993 to promote the Aces and Kings retrospective.
