A new song

This is a new song about a childhood memory of mine… I was petrified of the dark and most nights after turning out the light, I would be convinced I’d see a tall, black figure standing over me. And it would make me lie very still, until I worked up the courage to turn on the lamp and fill the room with light, which is when he would disappear.

Shadow Man

It’s quiet
My back is turned to the night
A dark dreamer wonders into the bedroom
I always hear whispers

Standing over me again
The little stars are looking in
Flick the switch so they glow
Well, the light makes him go

A screamer
Still, I lie in the madness
A tall dreamer with a hat and a cape
His shape was a whisper

Standing over me again
The little stars are looking in
Flick the switch so they glow
Well, the light makes him go

Black is dark and dark is night
And all I’d see before I’d sleep
Was the man that frightened me
And I’d lie in my sweat and tears
For all those years
With the shadow man
