Monster

  • I woke up in the night, I found an empty cage
    How you got out, I don't know, I guess you clawed your way
    You waited there in the shadows, you made me feel afraid
    I would've run before but no-no-no-no-not today

    Breathe, I close my eyes and count to three
    You're only there if I believe

    And you're just a monster
    Just a monster
    And I'm not scared
    You're just a monster
    Just a monster
    You're just a monster
    And I'm not scared

    Come on and cut me then if you really must
    Don't you realize that you and I would bleed the same blood
    You've got so much power and it makes you feel tough
    But can't you see that all you need I just to be loved?

    Breathe, I close my eyes and count to three
    (One, two, three)

    And you're just a monster
    Just a monster
    And I'm not scared
    You're just a monster
    Just a monster
    You're just a monster
    And I'm not scared

    You're only in my mind
    Yeah, you're only in my mind
    Tomorrow I'll be fine
    'Cause you're only in my mind
    You're only in my mind
    Wanna see you one more time
    Na na, only in my mind
    Tomorrow I'll be fine

    And you're just a monster
    Just a monster
    You're just a monster
    And I'm not scared
    You're just a monster
    Just a monster
    You're just a monster
    And I'm not scared
