I used to sleep with the lights on at night
They shined from 4 bulbs set in the ceiling
When one went out, I could sense something wasn’t right
And would wake with a terrible feeling.
We got a night light for the light at night
Often times it wasn’t enough to keep me sleeping
They said at this age sleeping with a light isn’t right
So I said for the city I’d be leaving.
She asked me why I felt safer there at night
I said in the city there was always enough light to keep me dreaming
