Verse 1

The last sweet memory

Dangled from your clubbed fingers-

A tiny spider,

The fear in me still lingers.

And it crawls up on my skin,

And I just can't stop shaking.

And it punishes for my sin,

And my heart keeps on breaking.

Chorus

Why do broken up daydreams contort into nightmares?

Why does the world behind our closed eyes reek of despair?

Why do I dream of the creature that makes me feel scared?

Why is it the last thing you bared when you were still there?

If only you had held on tighter,

I wouldn't be hunted by spiders.

Verse 2

In a dream I find

My house is under attack-

A giant spider,

Slips its leg in through a crack.

And it blocks out my blue sky,

And I'm so frightened I cry.

And it'll eat me till I die,

And I'll be buried with lies.

Chorus

Why do broken up daydreams contort into nightmares?

Why does the world behind our closed eyes reek of despair?

Why do I dream of the creature that makes me feel scared?

Why is it the last thing you bared when you were still there?

If only you had held on tighter,

I wouldn't be hunted by spiders.

Bridge

Sitting there, listening to the music on your phone,

Happiness reverbed in every nerve, every bone,

Till we were interrupted,

The moment was corrupted,

By a spider sneaking on us,

You dangled it from your hand.

I jumped far away in alarm,

Far from my fairytale land.

And in a short while you were gone.

But the chase with the spider's on.

Chorus

Why do broken up daydreams contort into nightmares?

Why does the world behind our closed eyes reek of despair?

Why do I dream of the creature that makes me feel scared?

Why is it the last thing you bared when you were still there?

If only you had held on tighter,

I wouldn't be hunted by spiders.
