Walk across the garden 
In the footsteps of my shadow 
See the lights out 
No one's home 
In amongst the statues 
Stare at nothing in 
The garden moves 
Can you help me? 
Close my eyes 
And hold so tightly 
Scared of what the morning brings 
Waiting for tomorrow 
Never comes 
Deep inside 
The empty feeling 
All the night time leaves me 
Three imaginary boys 

Slipping through the door 
Hear my heart beats in the hallway 
Echoes 
Round and round 
Inside my head 
Drifting up the stairs 
I see the steps behind me 
Disappearing 
Can you help me? 

Close my eyes 
And hold so tightly 
Scared of what the morning brings 
Waiting for tomorrow 
Never comes 
Deep inside 
The empty feeling 
All the night time leaves me 
Three imaginary boys sing in my 
Sleep sweet child 
The moon will change your mind 

See the cracked reflection 
Standing still 
Before the bedroom mirror 
Over my shoulder 
But no one's there 
Whispers in the silence 
Pressing close behind me 
Pressing close behind 
Can you help me? 
Can you help me? 
Can you help me?
