Follow It

lyrics

I don’t know what it is! Just follow it. Don’t know what it is! Just follow it.
Don’t know where it’s going either. Why’d I have to volunteer?
There’s an arrow made out of leaves on the ground or maybe the breeze has turned it around.
A rope is coming down the hallway. I can’t tell where it’s heading.
Don’t know what it is, just follow it. Don’t know what it is, just follow it.
If I’m not back in thirty, go get help and hurry.
I don’t know what we’ll find out there. I don’t know much, but I know I’m scared.
I never thought I’d be a believer! I never thought I’d catch that fear!

Hey there, won’t you lend me your light,
'cuz the candle I’ve got is not very bright?
And please stop shining that thing in my face,
you’ve been waving your mirrors all over the place.

Shadows moving there in the murky light. Shadows moving there in the murky light.
Why’s it have to be so scary? Why’d you have to double dare me?
Shadows moving there in the murky light. Was that a ghost or just my sight?
There might be zombies or devils, spirits or mummies or werewolves.
Just picture them all in their underwear. Just picture them all in their underwear.
Be sure your laces are tied and there’s batteries in your light.
It’s one foot in front of the other one. Put one foot in front of the other one.
And on the count of four I’m gonna open up that door.

Hey there, won’t you lend me your light,
'cuz the candle I’ve got is not very bright?
And please stop shining that thing in my face.
You’ve been waving your mirrors all over the place.

One Two Three Four

When you turn out that light, there’s no fright – it’s only night.
And when you’re scared, please be aware there’s nothing there – it’s only air.
And when you leave your past behind, don’t be afraid – it’s only time.
