Monsters

When we were young
There were always creatures lurking under the bed
A thousand year old dragon lived deep in the lake
And he said "Don't be afraid"
So you dove in

He seemed so sweet and lovely he made you laugh
And made you forget about the rain
Showed you new tricks on guitar
Hidden talents that erases the pain, ah

And don't you know that there's a wolf
Stalking in sheep's clothing
Tells me he's the real thing
Think what your life would be missing
If you didn't have him to sing
To sing about

Three headed monsters
They want your money wanna be in the picture
Be your friend
They fill your pool
With alligators are they all just jokers or are they cruel

They light up when they see you
Like there's no where else that they'd rather be
Than by your side
Then they promise you the stars
But they're really just along for the ride, ah

And don't you know that there's a wolf
Stalking in sheep's clothing
Tells me he's the real thing
Think what your life would be missing
If you didn't have him to sing
To sing about, ah ah

Ah ah, ah

Is it the sparkle
In their eyes or the knowledge of the ways of the world
The way they kiss
The way they hold you
Has made you blind to the fangs and the fire

There's a wolf
Stalking in sheep's clothing
Tells me he's the real thing
Think what your life would be missing
If you didn't have him to sing
To sing about, ah
Ah ah, ah ah
Ah ah, ah, ah ah
