WHAT'S IN THE DARK?

 Don't open the door!, Don't turn off the lights,
 Not tonight,

 It comes from anywhere and everywhere, It comes 
 Without light.

 It sees you, It can hear you breathe, afraid! so 
 Afraid on this night,

 From a long time ago it is what was hiding under your 
 Bed, in the dark.

 Peeking in your window as you covered your face, shaking 
 In your bed,

 You thought you could hide, foolish as you started to  
  Cry, It's alive!

 The thing that worried you, thoughts from your mind, in 
 Your closet, hiding,

 So young as it overpowered that childish Imagination 
 Locked inside.

 Can you hear it, do you feel it as you're certain it 
 Watches with eyes,

 Forget did you to close that closet door, do you believe 
 It opens more?

 Down the hall, what do you hear, yours is the only open 
 Door near,

 Has it followed you into today, are you afraid from 

 What's in the dark, does it stay under your bed, is it 
 In your window?

 Does it hide in the closet, could it be coming for you 
 Down the hall?

 What's in the dark as you remember, has it followed you 
 From yesterday?

 Will it ever, ever leave your Halloween, will it ever, 
 Ever leave your today?
