An owl hoots aloud on a dark and cold misty night
Hard to see around you, where are all the lights?
Tree branches tapping on the windowpane
Your footsteps the only sound as you walk alone down a deserted lane
Looking back behind you through the car window, down a country road
A figure walking along the grass verge, but then where do they go?
That feeling of being watched, when you are all alone
The floorboards creaking in the night, odd sounds seem like a whisper, or maybe even a groan
Your belongings in the dark, creating odd shapes and shadows
When things mysteriously keep disappearing, where do they go?
You get a call in the evening, but there's nobody on the other end
Is it somebody sinister, or, trying to scare you, just a friend?
Spooky films watched through the gaps in your fingers
Images of scary faces and scenes in the film, for too long they linger
You wake at midnight trying to make out those shapes in the room
Your heartbeat won't stop racing, imagining all sorts of creatures and doom
Remember not to relax as your horror flick gets all quiet and calm
That's when they'll come out, creep up behind you, or suddenly grab your arm
Spiders, ghosts, zombies and killers
Getting frightened senseless, dressing up and dancing to Thriller
Carving pumpkins, trick or treating and telling ghost stories
Competing with one another for who can be the most gory
It's time to face your fears and find yourself in a dark, spooky, scene
Be prepared to get frightened, for tonight is Halloween!....
