Hidden in the Darkness

What lies hidden in the darkness?
A face you cannot see
floating through the blackness
an image of fear unseen

the place is deadly quiet
as steps echo through the house
the clock has chimed past midnight
no ones here, not a mouse

Your heart is racing quickly
hair it stands on end
you thought a noise behind you
and then turned but no ones there.

the jet black ink around you
hides a presence you cannot see
a feeling has come over
of some one here but me

Outside a storm is raging
no one will hear you scream
this fear is getting stronger
of anger, death and mean

as brave as you are trying
to break up this fear inside
a crash has come from upstairs
now has come the time to hide

The noise it isn't human
no one could make like that
the image is now stronger
with the doorway at your back


The power has been turned off
no light for you to see
the darkness has confused you
this fear will not let you be

A flash of light then thunder
shows a shadow by the door
there's no one there to make it
a realisation there'll be no more

They said the house was haunted
a fear you laughed away
sadly you didn't make it
to see the light of day
