"Someone Watching Over Me" as written by and Sean Francis Caleb/mccabe Payne....
Well I'm sure there's someone watching over me
At night, while I'm sleeping.
'Cause no harm ever seems to come to me,
At night,while I'm sleeping

They never let me wake to see
Who could be standing and guarding me
And when the morning comes
They never seem to stick around

I see demons and spies with Cyclops eyes
At night, while I'm sleeping.
And girls with claws and blood-stained floors
At night, while I'm sleeping.
I see bullets of steel and they clip my heels
At night, while I'm sleeping
And all the blades they spin and slit my skin
At night, while I'm sleeping

I must have had a hundred fights and changed from dark into light.
But when I awoke all this violence and pain was all right

I'm gonna wait alone under my sheets and pretend to close my eyes
And I will wait until the sun comes up
I will wait all night
I don't care if you don't come and show yourself
'Cause I know you're always near me
And when it's dark again I'll count to ten and you'll be standing by me

    General CommentI think its about night fears, maybe scared of the dark. he feels better in the thought that a loved one (family / freing / lover) was with him ("And when it's dark again I'll count to ten and you'll be standing by me").

    General CommentTo me it seems like making a point about the way that beliefs are formed in the first place - "I can see scary things happening, but then I turn out to be safe in the end, so there must be someone protecting me." It's a point about religion being a response to not understanding what's really going on.
