I hide in the shadows,
I don't want you to see me.
I don't want to be in your light,
Because I'm not worthy enough for you to see.

When you go home, I follow you.
When you stop in the shop, I'll go out of sight.
Because, my love, you won't like what you see.
I'm the darkness, and you're my light.

So please, don't think ill of me,
Even though I stalk you all day,
And never let you out of my sight.
It's just called 'loving', in a different way.

So rest easy now, I'm there to watch over you tonight;
When you sleep, I'll make sure the bed bugs don't bite.
