Right Beside You

Right Beside You


It stands there beside you
As goosebumps run up your arms
And the air feels much colder
Like some kind of silent alarm

If you feel your skin crawling
It is trying to sink its claws in
This will only be the start
Of when the real terror begins

As Halloween gets closer
Each night gets more intense
Nerves will be more shocking
As if you're in an electric fence

You can't run and hide
They'll find you wherever you go
They want you as their victim
For they are after your soul

You can't hide in the closet
That is one of their favorite places
And don't look under your bed
You'll be surprised of the many faces

If you see an arm reach out
It does no good to scream
For these demons are to real
Much worse than anything you might dream

Watch out as you Trick-or-Treat
They hide behind bushes and trees
When they come after you
You better run not scream or freeze

Yes they are right beside you
Don't turn and try to look
If you make that fatal mistake
Then consider yourself already took
