Afraid To Let The Monster Out

You wonder why I don’t talk so much
It’s not because you haven’t got the human touch

You wonder why I don’t say a lot --ooh
It’s not because of something you have or haven’t got

I’m afraid to let the monster out - oh oh
I’m afraid to let the monster out - oh oh
I’m afraid to let the monster out - oh oh
Afraid if I let him out
I’ll never get him back again

You wonder why I bottle stuff up
It’s not through your lack of trying tho it’s just my luck

You wonder why I can’t open up – ooh
It’s not because your listening skills are not up to much

CHORUS

All of these years I’ve been storing it storing it
All of this time I’ve been hoarding it hoarding it
One of these days I’ll be pouring it pouring it
Out, it Out. I’ll have to let him out

You wonder why I don’t let you in
It’s not because you’re not worthy of being my friend

You wonder why I can’t be myself
It’s not through being weird or maladjusted…hell

CHORUS
