Lyrics
It was a hell of a party
We were shaking wall to wall
There were girls in the bathtub
And girls in the hall
Little Richard started talking
We were feeling so fine
Then a presence a**erted itself
Chilled me down to my spine
The beast came in the room
Evil to the core
If the beast came in the room
I don't want to be here no more

Having a nightmare
I wake up shrieking in the night
Must be a nightmare
Got me reaching for the light
This can't be real
(This can't be real)

Now pull the covers over my head
I curled up in fright
I don't need these problems
In my life
Sister Carrie started talking
She said, I'm with you babe
But that evil presence
Would just not go away
The beast was in the room
(Beast was in the room)
And he wouldn't leave
The beast was in the room
(Beast was in the room)
I was afraid the beast was me

Having a nightmare
I wake up shaking in the night
Must be a nightmare
Got me reaching for the light
This can't be real
(This can't be real)

I love you baby
We ain't living in sin
You and me baby
Won't let the devil in
Yeah
I love you baby
We ain't living in sin
You and me Carrie
Won't let the devil in

Having a nightmare
Got me shaking in the night
I'm having a nightmare
Just keep reaching for the light
Having a nightmare
Has me shaking
Shaking in the night
Having a nightmare
Got me reaching for the light
This can't be real
Oh no
I was afraid the beast
(I was afraid the beast)
I was afraid the beast
(I was afraid the beast)
Was me, me, me
Aaahhhhhh
Yeahhhhhh
