“Simmer down”
Says the angel on your shoulder
“Louder now”
Says the fire at your neck
But I know you much better
You wouldn’t play without flame
Watch it burn, watch it flicker
Until its something that you can tame

Hear the ghosts
As they assemble in the evening
Whispering
Yes, they’re calling out your name
Well, if you aren’t such a coward
Get up from under your bed
And tell me what it is you’re after
That’s when you looked up at me and said

“Well, I’m just a monster
Hiding from sight until someone comes my way
I’m just a monster
No one will stay ‘cause I scare them all away
I’m just a lonely, leery, weary soul
Who’s longing for a heart
No, you’re no monster
You’re still afraid of the dark”

“Tell me now
What’s the spell that I’ve been under
Help me out”
You ask with hunger in your eyes
“For if love is the answer
I was damned from the start
Who could this disaster
I’m just a body — no beating heart”

“’Cause I’m just a monster
Hiding from sight until someone comes my way
I’m just a monster
No one will stay, ‘cause I scare them all away”

“I’m just a monster
Hiding from sight until someone comes my way
I’m just a monster
No one will stay ‘cause I scare them all away
I’m just a lonely, leery, weary soul
Who’s longing for a heart
No, you’re no monster
You’re still afraid of the dark”

“You’re still afraid of the dark”

“Afraid of the dark”

“Afraid of the dark”
