about

I originally wrote and recorded this song back in 2006. I've wanted to re-record it ever since. I hope you like the new version.

lyrics

Are you afraid of the dark, my baby?
I said mother, oh mother I am
Lay here as still as you can my baby
And I’ll fill up your eyelids with sand

I cried myself to sleep
While the monsters were quietly creeping
Through the cracks in my door
Plundering sheets for to dream in

What if our house catches fire tonight?
She says, “baby, oh baby it won’t”
How do you know so much more than I do?
She says, “baby, oh baby I don’t”

I cried myself to sleep
While the flames melt my whole into hollow
And in the snow white morning
Shoveling ash from my pillow

What if I fall asleep tonight
And I know not the light of the morning?
With robbers and demons aflight
Oh, lying awake I am listening
