There's a light on in the hallway,
So I can't understand
Why you hide underneath the covers.
There's a baby in your womb,
So don't be scared tonight
Raggedy Ann is in the closet picking posies.

Two babies in the dark,
Like diamonds in the sand,
While papa's far away making up children's stories.
The little one's inside,
So afraid to be alone,
She's trying to be brave until the daddy comes home.

So if you chance to see her,
Please tell her it's alright
'Cause everyone fights the tendency to snap.
Sometimes it's not a matter of being brave and strong
'Cause noises in the house are terrifying.

Two babies in the dark,
Like diamonds in the sand,
While papa's far away making up children's stories.
The little one's inside,
So afraid to be alone,
She's talking to herself now 'cause no one's home.

I'll put you to sleep at night
Like a foreign movie,
I'll sing you lullabies
And I'll teach you about everything,
And I'll only ask one thing,
Please save me.
