"Night of the Crickets" as written by and Sam Meister Nicole Meister....
Right at five the sound bursts through the door. (door, door)
Splinters shattered piercing breaks the floor. (floor, floor)
Hiding under sheets that brush my face. (face, face)
Falling feathers cover suffocate... (suffocate, suffocate) me.

Knock on the door, (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)
bury me whole... (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)
Beating once more, (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)
bury me whole... (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)

Wait, take me home...
Break, take my life away...

Disappear I melt into the wall. (wall, wall)
Quick descending wings spread break my fall. (fall, fall)
Hands that lift me up they brush my face. (face, face)
With one kiss our bodies separate... (separate, separate) me.

Knock on the door, (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)
bury me whole (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)
Beating once more, (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)
bury me whole (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)
Wait, take me home (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)
Break, take my life away (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)

Knock on the door, (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)
bury me whole (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)
Beating once more, (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)
bury me whole (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)
Knock on the door, (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)
bury me whole (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)
Beating once more, (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)
bury me whole (ding dong, ding dong, ding dong)

Wait...
