As a child I would wake at night
I was scared but I kept real quiet
Shadows on the walls moving in on me
And underneath my sheets I could barely breathe

And your room was only just across the hall
All it would have taken was a single call
Maybe sometimes we've got to trust ourselves
Not to scream out loud, and run like hell

Believe me, all our days here are unsure
Believe in me, I don't want to anymore
And in the dark, picture me in your mind
And I'll lay with you, you don't have to be scared at night

As a young man you were shooting rats
By accident you hit the farmyard cat
He ran for the fields and came back the next day
You'd blown out his eye and you could see his brain

That's it boy, there is some things in life
You don't wanna do, but you know is right
So take him out back and finish him off
Got your gun off the shelf, it only took one shot

Believe me, all our days here are unsure
Believe in me, I don't want to anymore
And in the dark, picture me in your mind
And I'll lay with you, so you don't have to be scared at night

And I flew away and I paid on your final day
They said that you waited 'til I came
We sang your favorite hymns and we held your hand
You took your final breath and that was that

But I'd never seen a person die before
I tried so hard not to cry and all
'Cause maybe sometimes we've got to trust ourselves
That when you die you go some place else

Believe me, all our days here are unsure
Believe in me, I don't want to anymore
And in the dark, picture me in your mind
And I'll lay with you, you don't have to be scared at night
You don't have to be scared at night
You don't have to be scared at night
