Lyrics

THE MONSTER
Jenny Bienemann and Carley Baer
 
All my life I’ve been afraid of a monster
See him peeking from behind a tree
Hear him whisper to me as I wander
This what he’d say to me
 
         Life is hard
         The world is scary
         People can be cruel
 
Then one day he came up right behind me
And I invited him in for tea
He said I’d only gotten half the story
This is what he tried to say to me
 
         Life is hard, don’t get numb
         The world is scary, but you belong
         People can be cruel, but you’ll find
         They’re far more often kind
 
Now he has a certain kind of sweetness
Like molasses in my tea
When the world gets overwhelming
On the bridge between awake and asleep
I hear him say
 
         Life is hard, don’t get numb
         The world is scary, but you belong
         People can be cruel, but you’ll find
         They’re far more often kind
