Once The Light's Off - Poem by Roberta James Mitchell

i won't sleep 'coz the mounsters are back,
the ones that went away
when you got in my life
they're back 'coz now you're gone
they must've heard the news on the radio
of their creepy city far away,
they must've seen it on a tv show,
i'm being left on my own.....

'extra, extra, she's alone again'
'extra, extra, no one cares for her'
'extra, extra' i can hear 'em from my bed,
where i'm hiding again.

now they're gathering all ghosts,
creepy creatures and mounsters will come
'coz they won't leave me 'til i'm lost,
they must've heard the news on the radio,
they must've seen it on a tv show

'coz it's no news that you won't care,
my meanwhile hero it's far away,
and my prince hasn't arrive yet.
no one will come once the light's off,
no one cares about the grown up girl
if she's afraid she's by her own,
no one will hel me once the lights go off.....
