To escape you must've been brave.
It was a frightening case.
Somebody chased you to the same place where your eyes closed.
Say hello to the monster in your home,
who roams around when he thinks that he's alone.
It's a dream.
But no one can hear you scream.
No one can hear you.
You're not blind- there's a star in the sky.

But oh, you'll be standing by my side.

On the street wires walk with me.
Position me to where I can follow your lead.
You say I never leave.
I've been everywhere.
I've weaved through parking lots, dodging speeding cars and shopping carts.
Say goodnight to the contents of your room.
Trim the lights for the trimming of the moon.
Your bed, it's a shoulder for your head or a helecopter pad.

Do you see out of the corner of your eye that I'm standing by your side?

    General CommentThis is corrected for what I heard

    "To escape, you must've been brave.
    It was a frightening case, where somebody chased you to the same place where your eyes closed.
    In the same haze.

    Say hello to the monster in your home.
    Who roams around when he thinks that he's alone.
    It's a dream.
    But no one can hear you scream.
    No one can hear you.
    But you'll get light - though theres not a star tonite.

    Oh, you'll be standing by my side.
    You'll be standing by my side.

    On the street, wires walk with me.
    Position me to where I can follow your lead.
    You say I never leave.
    But I've been everywhere, I've weaved through the parking lots, dodging speeding cars and shopping carts.
    Say goodnight to the contents of your room.
    Trim the lights for the spinning of the moon.
    In your bed, it's a shoulder for your head or a helicopter pad.

    You're not blind, theres not a star in the sky.
    But, do you see in the corner of your eye.
    Do you see in the corner of your eye that I'm standing by your side.
    Do you see in the corner of your eye that I'm standing by your side.
    That I'm standing by your side."
