What Does It Take

What does it take to make your eyes close?
The shades are drawn and the day is escaping...
So many things go on at night
Who knows what happens when I turn out the lights?
But now stay calm and get used to not knowing

Try not to dream of what can haunt you
Of headless men or of phantoms and goblins...
All sorts of things threaten our lives
But chances are you will make it through the night
So now stay calm and be glad you're still living

What do you feel when you're not smiling?
Is there a void, a vacuum that's draining
All of your hopes, all of your dreams,
All those ambitions you fear you'll never see
The basic things that make life fulfilling?
