The phantom
Shadows on your wall
phantom  in the air
 scaring  you while your laying there
as your holding your blanket tight
while you shake endlessly tonight
mad that your nite light bulb burn out
and that the phantom not far from above
 while those shadows feel like there closing in
 leaving you more afraid and there nowhere to run
 because the phantom closing in one by one
as the phantom whisper your never win
as the phantom whisper your night has come
because the phantom gasp you holding you tight
 keeping up with your freight
while the shadows are boxing you left and right
leaving very scare screaming for help
 but your voice is gone
 to silent for anyone to hear
 to silent for any one to come near
 and much to silent for anyone to get there
So now your in a cold sweat
and your body feeling bruised
 and your body shaking
 your rooms are closing in
 leaving you little space
to run out of your place
 because the phantom has you tighter
 and laughing harder in your face
 while the shadows are hitting you harder
as you try to inbrace
inbracing every blow
in hoping they will go
 than suddendly you  hear a alarm
 you wake up from your nightmare
and so glad they never did any harm
so glad they were never here!
