(Musical transitions are my big worry for this song, but the lyrics actually feel very solid to me. It's different from my usual and a little edgy I guess. I kind of like it a lot. It speaks to me.)

Verse 1

A growl in the dark

It sounds like you’re about to die

Can you smell the fear

Sharp claws glint under shadow

You start to cry

You can tell it’s here

 

Oh why did you ever leave your home

It’s burning you up inside

Oh why did you ever go out alone

No, no!

 

Chorus

Can you hear the beat of a heart

Beating fast, beating hard

Oh, oh

It’s scared, it’s hurt, it’s lonely

It’s scared, it’s hurt, it’s lonely

 

The monster in the dark

The monster in the dark

 

Teeth, sharp

Filed into perfect darts

Claws uncut

Danger to the doors un-shut

 

But look into my eyes

Just look into my eyes

 

Verse 2

Avoiding a name

It calls out in the night

Hold back your tears

A shiver down your spine

You start to cry

It’s here, it’s here

 

Oh why did you ever leave your home

It’s burning you up inside

Oh why did you ever go out alone

No, no!

 

Bridge

Lean close,

Forget what you’ve been taught

Just lean in close

Pretend that you’re not caught

 

And look into my eyes

Look in to my eyes

 

End

Just look into my eyes

Just look into my eyes

The monster in the dark

The monster in the dark

The monster inside
