THE NIGHTMARE

 

WELL YOU WOKE UP THIS MORNING, SAID YOU'D HAD A DREAM                                                      

IT MADE YOU CRY IN THE NIGHT AND IT MADE YOU SCREAM,

AND YOU TOSSED AND YOU TURNED IN THE SWEAT AND THE STRAIN

0 YOU KNOW ... WHEN THE NIGHTMARE CAME.

 

AND YOU CALLED OUT TO ME, TO GET YOU OUT OF THERE,

TAKE AWAY THE SADDLE AND THE BRIDAL SNARE

AND YOU REACHED OUT TO ME

TO PULL IN THE REINS

AH, BUT NOW SHE GALLOPED THROUGH YOUR MIND,

CHASING DOWN THE WINDS OF TIME.

 

0 THE NIGHTMARE

SHE RIDES A DARKENED FIELD,

0 THE NIGHTMARE

SHE RIDES THE VALLEYS DEEP, YES

AND SHE KEEPS YOU TANGLED IN HER MANE

SHE WILL NOT TAKE YOU HOME AGAIN

AND SHE WILL NOT TAKE YOU HOME

SHE WILL NOT TAKE YOU HOME.

 

WELL WHAT LIES BESIDE YOU, IS IT REALLY ME?

OR IS IT JUST SOME FEAR YOU HAVE OF BEING FREE?

SHE CAN TAKE THAT FEAR

TO HER DARKENED FIELD,

AND RACE IT DOWN A STORMY WIND

SHE WILL NEVER LET IT REST AGAIN.

 

0 THE NIGHTMARE

SHE RIDES A DARKENED FIELD,

0 THE NIGHTMARE        

SHE RIDES THE VALLEYS DEEP, YES

AND SHE KEEPS YOU TANGLED IN HER MANE,

SHE WILL NOT TAKE YOU HOME AGAIN

AND SHE WILL NOT TAKE YOU HOME,

SHE WILL NOT TAKE YOU HOME .........
