Buffalo Tom – Late At Night lyrics

I close my door at night,
But they get in all right,
And she turns on the light.
I held her hands so tight,
'Cause words don't come out right,
And she sees things at night.
Me, I'm closer to the door,
I don't get scared no more,
But I don't know the score.
If I could hold them in my hand,
I'd make them understand.
I'm not a haunted mind,
I'm not a thoughtless kind.
If I could put them in a jar,
I know they wouldn't scar,
I'd do it if I could,
I hope you know I would.
I close my door at night,
But she gets in all right
So I turn on the light.
I held her hand too tight,
Too hard to make it right,
So I could sleep at night.
If I could hold them in my hand,
I'd make them understand.
I'm not a haunted mind,
I'm not a thoughtless kind.
If I could put them in a jar,
I know they wouldn't scar,
I'd do it if I could,
I hope you know I would.
I'd do it if I could,
I hope you know I would.
I'd do it if I could,
I hope you know I would.
I'd do it if I could,
I hope you know I would.

    I've heard that it's about creepy crawlies, like bugs getting in from under a door at bedtime, but I'm not sure. I think it's about the singer's anxious/paranoid/mental/drug addicted partner being scared of voices/feelings/dreams at night. Even though he tries to "close the door" on her issues, they still get in "all right. " he tries to compensate for this by holding her hand very tight, but it's not enough to "make it right. " she still "sees things," and even though he is closer to the door in case she freaks out and he has to bolt, he says he's not scared of that anymore. If he could take all her issues and talk to them, he would let them know that he is trustworthy and not out to hurt her. He would "do it if he could," because he loves her.
