I’m on my cold bed, in my dark room

Clutching against my chest, alone;

No one to stop, the shadows

Slithering into my room, but that’s all right

It’s the monster, in my room I fear.

There’s no running away

From this monster in my room

This is where my fear ends

Running away from my dad.

Coming into my room, late at night

Drunk again, or with lollipop

It’s what he does, I don’t like

This is where my fear ends

On my cold bed, all alone.

Staring into the night

All alone, silently crying out

They linger in the shadows

The light doesn’t chase;

In the morning I take long showers

To wash away the memories.

I am not happy as I seem to be,

Going about my life during the day

Playing and laughing with my friends;

Shining in class

Dreading the fiend of the night.

It like no one cares for me

And it’s every day

Dad coming into my room;

This is where my fear ends

On my cold bed, all alone

The lights I keep on don’t chase away the shadows

The long showers I take don’t wash away the memories

I’m not happy as I seem to be.
