LYRIC



How many times do I have to tell you not to,
Leave the shades open, and the lights on,
And the thugs with the drugs, and the great big bugs,
Are watching every move you make,
Counting every breath you make,
Don’t you ever feel safe.

Don’t stand near that large corner window,
The guy in the tree outside will take your picture,
Lock your doors and your floors, and exfoliate your pores,
But go ahead and go about all your chores,
Call me tonight, but don’t be late.

You’re talkin’,
You’re thinkin’,
I’m watching you walk,
I know where you park,
No sleeping in the dark.

Call me crazy, but I thought that picture,
Originally was on that facing wall,
And the ghosts, and the hosts,
Of those parties always boast,
How they nonchalantly eat their jam with toast.
Wealth can bring so much irrelevance.

I could swear that I saw a figure standing,
In the bushes watching as you were bathing,
And the dogs, and the cats, and the great big rats,
Beat on the bubonic plague with a big bat.
I hope you know how to fight with your hands.

You’re talkin’,
You’re thinkin’,
I’m watching you walk,
Take note of my remark,
No sleeping in the dark.

Why don’t you fix us both a nice meal?
From where I hide, undress for me,
Wear for me my favorite things.
Sleep at 10, wake up when,
Your boyfriend comes in, I can’t see anymore,
He ruined it for ME!

You’re sleeping, you’re bathing,
I’m hearing you talk,
I know when you cry,
I can even hear you sigh.

You’re bleeding, you’re needing,
We’ve never met eye to eye,
But you’re thinking of me,
I know for sure don’t lie.

You’re talkin’,
You’re thinkin’,
I’m watching you walk,
Take note of my remark,
No sleeping in the dark.
