about

A song about night terrors.

lyrics

Satin sheets cover my head
The world is louder in my bed
And my hollow window creaks
I haven't dreamt for weeks
and my eyes are open wide
Imagine faces in the night
They disappear when I blink
and reappear as I drift to sleep

Shadows dance around my walls
They play tricks on me all night long
They just wanna see me run
But I lie awake waiting for the sun
to greet my drowsy face
as moonlit beams made out of lace
make their way up on my skin
and the night has only just began

And I can't breathe anymore
and I can't see in the dark
But I can feel my heart
Jump around inside my bones

And the thought won't leave my head
so I'll soak them up and freeze instead
Cause these sheets won't protect me now
Gotta fight these off somehow
Minutes drag along to years
They laugh at all my wildest fears
And I'm scared of what I'll find
What's inside my mind

And I can't breathe anymore
And I can't see in the dark
But I can feel my heart
jump around inside my bones
And I can't breathe anymore
And I can't see in the dark
But I can feel my heart
jump around inside my bones

And as the darkness fades
and the sun greets my drowsy face
I get up to live my day
til it goes away
