No Sleeping Tonight

Are you set to sleep, if you dare to do so Music starts for no one on this fearful night The pumpkins shine brighter so that we may go Sleeping without an escape plan for tonight The headless horseman comes out for your head now Listen in the deep for the great cat’s meow To bed my little one, to dream land, it’s time You won’t have the saving grace, there’s no lifeline
Russell Sivey
