The darkness came closer to home, on the following night
And Miriam slept like a rock, when Jonathan's face went white
The bedroom was ice cold, but the fire was burning still
The blinding light, the family ghost, had risen again, the Ghost

Don't be scared, don't be scared now, my friend
I am Count De Lafey
Let me take you to the crypt down below, where Abigail rests
Let Miriam sleep, she never would understand
Now come let us go, it's time to know

Beware of the slippery stairs, you could easily fall and break your neck
Hand me that torch, and I will lead the way to the secret in the dark
Secret in the dark
Take a look into the vault, the vault, the sarcophagus of a child
Abigail has been in here for years and years, stillborn
Born, born, born

The spirit of Abigail is inside your wife
And there's only one way you can stop, the rebirth of evil itself
You must take her life, now, now, now, now, now, now

Songwriters
PETERSEN, KIM BENDIX
