Rhiannon Elizabeth Irons When The Night Is Young (And The Moon Is Full)

Staring up at the moon

Thoughts racing through my mind

It's tearing me apart

This wolf deep inside

The moon is full

It calls my name

The bite on my arm itches

And nothing will be the same

An arch of my back

A howl rips from my lips

The fur sprouts upon my body

And I know that this is it

 

Say a little prayer

Beg for your life

Tonight is going to get bloody

Beneath the pale moonlight

 

When the night is young

And the moon is full

Nothing is as it seems

The visions from your nightmares

Wake you with a scream

When the night is young

And the moon is full

You soon realize

That what you thought were just dreams

Is now standing before your eyes

 

Lurking in the shadows

Hidden from sight

Is a ghastly scene

That echoes the darkness of night

In the distance

Through the trees

I can see you walking

Completely at ease

Drool drips from my lips

I snarl a warning

And for the first moment of your life

You wished it was morning

 

Say a little prayer

Beg for your life

Tonight is going to get bloody

Beneath the pale moonlight

 

When the night is young

And the moon is full

Danger lurks around every bend

That's the moment when

You know your life is about to end

When the night is young

And the moon is full

You come to realize

All those stories about werewolves

Were not just little lies

 

Crashing through the trees

You see me and freeze

Keep repeating

Nothing is as it seems

My teeth are bared

I can tell that you're scared

Keep repeating

Do not despair

 

Say a little prayer

Beg for your life

Tonight is going to get bloody

Beneath the pale moonlight

 

When the night is young

And the moon is full

Nothing is as it seems

The visions from your nightmares

Wake you with a scream

When the night is young

And the moon is full

You soon realize

That what you thought were just dreams

Is now standing before your eyes
