  • Mark my words this night is far from its end
    Please spare me your threats and your useless remarks
    Go ahead, I dare you, take one step closer to this gap baby
    I'll show you what I mean

    I can't let fear get the best of me right now
    Keep smiling and soon you will pay

    Close your eyes and let your mind escape
    Into a world of dreams, I won't wake you
    Close your eyes and keep them shut
    The next part isn't going to be a very pretty sight

    Forget about tonight, tomorrow will be here so soon
    And we'll be busy singing, "The wicked witch is dead"
    Once upon a time seems so like a fairy tale
    I guess for us it's true

    Who's laughing now?
    Blood pours from her dry mouth as she begs for mercy
    Oh, how she screams
    If you think you'll win my forgiveness
    Sweetheart, you're sadly mistaken

    You shouldn't have brought us
    You shouldn't have hurt us
    You have not one clue what you've started but trust me
    You'll know when I'm finished

    Close your eyes and let your mind escape
    Into a world of dreams, I won't wake you
    Close your eyes and keep them shut
    The next part isn't going to be a very pretty sight

    Forget about tonight, tomorrow will be here so soon
    And we'll be busy singing, "The wicked witch is dead"
    Once upon a time seems so like a fairy tale
    I guess for us it's true

    You'd better run faster than that
    I know you're feeling scared but so am I
    Don't you dare turn around, hold on as tight as you can
    I know that you're afraid but so am I
    There's no time for tears run till you can't feel your legs

    Forget about tonight, tomorrow will be here so soon
    And we'll be busy singing, "The wicked witch is dead"
    Once upon a time seems so like a fairy tale
    I guess for us it's true

    Look who's laughing now
    Blood pours from her dry mouth as she begs for mercy
    If you think you'll win my forgiveness
    Sweetheart, you're sadly mistaken Writer/s: ADAM FERGUSON, DENNIS LEE, PATRICK M. THOMPSON, PATRICK THOMPSON, SHAWN MILKE
