Can I sleep with the light on tonight?
Mommy, don't make me turn out the light
I heard something moving
Just beyond my closet door

Can I sleep with the light on tonight?
Mommy, please tell me it's all right
I think there's something scratching
At my window

So tell me
Have the rules changed, or is it me?
I'm as grown as a man ought to be
Don't make me sleep in the dark
Don't shut Teddy in the drawer

Oh yes, I'm all grown up now, I think
After all I do, there is no time to play, Lord
Or laughter

Don't tell me you love me and send me away
I'm begging for one more chance to play
Turn on the lights
Start the laughter

    General CommentThis was about stress, man. Below that surface though, is the question of why it has to be, that life on Earth should be so hard on people. I get it that life is supposed to be a test, but it should be testing our faith and our spirit----not our nerves.
