Crawled in through the window

I grabbed the kitchen knife

Bb5 (½)            Db5 (½)
Couldn't stick it in, no

F5 (½)                Ab5 (½)
Creeper had his own

Bb5 (½)             Db5 (½)
Shining in the moonlight

      C5 (2)
My home was very cold, and something didn't feel right

Repeat Intro

Someone was hiding in a dark room in my home
