Don’t Look Under Your Bed (brand new song)

*I performed this last night at UnUrban Coffee House for the first time ever with my co-writer/guitarist, Dave Gaulkin.  Too much fun. 

Dedicated to: The insomniacs of the world

 

Don’t Look Under Your Bed

(VERSE)

It’s been a long day, babe, you look so tired

Your eyes are dyin’ to slam shut but you’re still wired

And putting off the inevitable

Is not gonna dissolve your troubles

 

(VERSE)

Now you’re lying in the dark again

Trying to quiet the buzz of demons

The moment you think that you can’t sleep

Fear comes to drag you down deep

 

 (PRE-CHORUS)

Insomnia lurks between your temples

Calling from that night highway of lost souls

Oh, no, don’t go down that hole

Keep this in mind …

 

(CHORUS)

All your demons seem bigger at night

They creep in to play out the drama of your life

Can you withstand the fright?

Of piled up problems behind your eyes

That scurry at the first sign of light

So, all you gotta do to make it on through

Is surrender to your fight

‘Cause it’s all in your head

But, don’t look under your bed

 

(VERSE)

The more you try the more you can’t sleep

So, focus on the sound of your breathing deep

Instead of calculating the sum of your sins

Bring back those thoughts, again & again

 

 (PRE-CHORUS)

Anxiety dances with your shadows

Branches are scratching on your windows

Oh, no, don’t go down that hole

Let it all go …

 

 (CHORUS)

All your demons seem bigger at night

They creep in to play out the drama of your life

Can you withstand the fright?

Of piled up problems behind your eyes

That scurry at the first sign of light

So, all you gotta do to make it on through

Is surrender to your fight

‘Cause it’s all in your head

But, don’t look under your bed

 

INTERLUDE

 

(CHORUS)

Your demons seem bigger at night

They creep in to play out the drama of your life

Can you withstand the fright?

Of tired out problems behind your eyes

That scurry at the first sign of light

So, all you gotta do to make it on through

Is surrender to the fight

 

Cause it’s all in your head

But, don’t look under your bed

Cause it’s all in your head

But, don’t look under your bed
