Trick or treat!
Time to party!
Are you coming, she asked curiously
No, her BFF replied shortly
Walking alone in the dark
The devil swung her purse high up
Out fell keys and a few pennies
But, oh, where were her cards?
She headed back to the dorm
Click, the door came unlocked
Lights were off with deep snoring sound
Oh, her roommate’s dreaming out loud
So she crossed the room in the dark
To the table and took her cards
Then silently she tiptoed out
Partied late and a little drunk
Her friends drove her back around one
Alas, lights galore, outside the dorm
But of red and blue, what’s going on?
Your friend was murdered she was told
The couch was bloodied her friend was cold
But, oh, who did it, they did not know
Just gave her a number and left her alone
An hour of crying
An hour’s bath
Quietly she mourned an epitaph
Then she felt the murderer talking to her
Whispering sweetly into her ears
Shaking it off she went to get dressed
Opening the closet, a bloodied mirror talked back
Don’t you feel lucky you first left home
Yet you turned back brave and alone
And of course, you could’ve made the room shine so bright
But aren’t you glad you didn’t turn on the lights?
