 Have you run your fingers down the wall , have you felt your neck skin crawl

             C5                D5         D5
 When you're searching for the light

 D5                    D5               Bb5             Bb5         C5
 Sometimes when you're scared to take a look , at the corner of the room

 You've sensed that something's whatching you

  And turn around and no one's there

  D5         Bb5             C5                 F5      G5      D5
  And as you quicken up your pace , you find it hard to look again
 
                 Bb5                  C5      C5
  Because you're sure there someone's there
