At that time of night

"AT THAT TIME OF NIGHT" - George Wilhite

Outside
At that time of night
Darkness deepens
Shadows within shadows
Eerie sounds
Phantom breath brings gooseflesh
Spine tingles
Pace quickens
Instinct to look back
But you feel too foolish
Anxiety swells
Until key opens door
And light switch flipped
You are safe once more
At that time of night

Inside
At that time of night
Turn out the lights
The still silent house brings
Shadows within shadows
Eerie sounds
Phantom breath brings gooseflesh
Spine tingles
Pace quickens
Anxiety swells
You do all you can
To shelter your body
But your mind knows
Anything can happen
At that time of night
