Night Terrors

Screaming again
at the top of my lungs
Screaming again
out of control

Scared the hell out of myself
and everyone else in the house
Don't know why I'm screaming
Don't know what I'm screaming about

Jagged nerves
when I wake up
Embarassment creeps in
overtakes the terror

Can't fall back to sleep
can't stay awake
so I lay there quietly
and shake

for while
then sleep wins again
until the screaming begins

and it will
