lt's only a movie.

lt's not funny.

You were scared, weren't you?

l wasn't that scared.

Yeah. You were scared.

lt's close to midnight

And something evil's

a-lurkin' in the dark

Under the moonlight

You see a sight that

almost stops your heart

You try to scream

But terror takes the sound

before you make it

And you start to freeze

As horror looks you

right between the eyes

You're paralyzed

You hear the door slam

And realize there's

nowhere left to run

You feel the cold hand

And wonder if

you'll ever see the sun

And you close your eyes

And hope that this

is just imagination

Girl

But all the while

You hear a creature

creepin' up behind

You're out of time

They're out to get you

There's demons closin' in

on every side

They will possess you

Unless you change

that number on your dial

Now is the time

For you and l

to cuddle close together

Yeah

All through the night

l'll save you

from the terror on the screen

l'll make you see
