My ghosts and monsters
They wake me every night
Sharp teeth and bad breath
Whispering your name
I'm not quite lonely
Feels more like scared to death
Your memory haunts me
When I put myself to bed
I've been sleeping with the lights on
Talking in my sleep
And waking to an empty home
I've been sleeping with the lights on
Since you've been gone
Bela Lugosi
And Boris Karloff too
Make such strange bedfellows
But how do they know you
They'll stay for hours
They'll haunt me all night long
Talk about your new love
'Til the crack of dawn
I know you're not to blame
For the shape I'm in
It's the nature of the beast
But how do I explain
When it's time to love again
The monsters are real
