lyrics

[Verse 1]
There's an ocean in my yard when I look out the window,
There's a black-hole in my room when I turn out the light.
There's a monster under my bed but I can't tell no-one.
I'm wide awake darling, and I'm afraid of the night.

Singing.

There's a storm outside, I refrain to look out the window.
From the movies I've seen, I'd be looking at someone strange.
But the curtain won't hide my room lit up by lightning.
I'm wide awake darling, and I'm afraid of the night.

[Chorus]
Would you wait here darling, baby I can't sleep.
That poster on the wall gives me the creeps.
When we're hand in hand I feel at ease.
You don't have to stay here darling, but stay here 'til I sleep.

Singing.

[Verse 2]
There's a picture in my head, when I close my eyes.
There's a whisper in my ears, and it's inside.
There's a yelling outdoors, and match it, I just might.
I'm wide awake darling, and I'm afraid of the night.

[Chorus]

Singing.
