Cure – Lullaby lyrics

(I Spy, Spiderman, softer than shadow and quicker than flies)

On candy stripe legs the Spiderman comes softly through the shadow of the evening sun (Sun)
Stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead
Looking for the victim shivering (Shivering) in bed
Searching out fear in the gathering gloom and suddenly a movement in the corner of the room
And there is nothing I can do when I realise with fright that the Spiderman is having me for dinner tonight

Quietly he laughs and shaking his head, creeps closer now, closer to the foot of the bed
And softer than shadow and quicker than flies, his arms are all around me and his tongue in my eyes
"Be still be calm be quiet now my precious boy, don't struggle like that or I will only love you more
For it's much too late to get away or turn on the light
The Spiderman (The Spiderman) is having you for dinner tonight (For dinner tonight)"
And I feel like I'm being eaten by a thousand million shivering furry holes
And I know that in the morning I will wake up in the shivering cold
And the Spiderman is always hungry

(The Spiderman, the Spiderman is having, is having me for me for supper)
