THE HAUNTED HOUSE

IN THE STILL OF THE NIGHT
I HEAR THE CHAINS
FROM THE HAUNTED HOUSE
WHERE ONLY THE GHOSTS REMAIN

I CAN HEAR THEM CACKLING
ABOUT THEIR PLANS
AND THEN I SEE
THEIR BONY HANDS

AT MY BACK WINDOW
TRYING TO GET IN
THESE ARE THE GHOSTS
I WILL NOT LET WIN

I CAN HEAR THE WIND HOWLING
LIKE NEVER BEFORE
I HEAR THEM WHISPERING
AT MY BACK DOOR

IT SOUNDS LIKE A CHILD
SINGING A SONG
HE SINGS ALL NIGHT
ALL NIGHT LONG

AMID ALL THE CLATTER
OF THE BONES AS THEY SHAKE
MY HEART DOES A TUMBLE
IT’S MORE THAN I CAN TAKE

THEY PUSH AT MY WINDOWS
THEY PUSH AT MY DOOR
THEY KEEP PUSHING
TILL I CAN STAND NO MORE

GARLIC HANGS IN MY WINDOWS
ROSARY BEADS WRAPPED AROUND MY HAND
SINCE I FEAR
THIS GHOSTLY BAND

I’M AFRAID ONE NIGHT
WHEN I’M ALL ALONE
THEY WILL REACH IN MY WINDOW
AND TAKE ME FROM MY HOME

THEY’LL STAND IN A CIRCLE
AND PULL THE LIFE OUT OF ME
PERHAPS THIS IS THE WAY
I WILL FINALLY BE FREE

WHEN THE MORNING LIGHT APPEARS
THEY ARE GONE
TO REST IN THE HAUNTED HOUSE
THEY CAN’T GO BEYOND

THEY ARE CAUGHT SOMEWHERE
BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL
THEIR FATE HANGS IN THE BALANCE
NO ONE CAN TELL

THEY LOOK FOR SOLACE
THEY LOOK FOR AN END
MAYBE THEY ARE JUST LOOKING
FOR ONE FRIEND

BUT I AM NOT READY
TO TAKE ON THE RESPONSIBILITY
IF I DO
WHO WILL WATCH OVER ME?
