Bad Dream/Night Mare

Once upon a time

We were just little kids

Didn't have no worries

Didn't have no fears

Except for the monsters and the dark

When the lights went out at night

But there are scarier things out there

Than bad dreams coming to life

After my nightmare I said

But the big bad wolf was stopped

By a house made out of bricks

And the boogey-man don't come

When my night light's shining bright

After hanging up my dream-catcher

Just a few years back

All the bad guys have been stopped by it

Why couldn't it stop them

I remember our good-byes

When you left my side

In trouble at sixteen

You were scared for you life

I went into my room

And cried my eyes out all night

But mom came in the morning to hold me tight

That's when I said

But the big bad wolf was stopped

By a house made out of bricks

And the boogey-man don't come

When my night light's shining bright

After hanging up my dream-catcher

Just a few years back

All the bad guys have been stopped by it

Why couldn't they stop him

Thirteen years later I look in to the eyes

Of my youngest baby girl and

They're shining like lights

With the tears of a bad dream that

I know so well

She climbs into my lap and says

But the big bad wolf was stopped

By a house made out of bricks

And the boogey-man don't come

When my night light's shining bright

After hanging up my dream-catcher

Just a few years back

All the bad guys have been stopped by it

Why couldn't it stop them

Momma, please tell me why...

Why couldn't it stop them.....

The End
