Lyrics

Written by: Jenai Huff

When I was young
the boogey men
beneath my bed
Had telepathic voices
That came into my head
They made me scared
I filled with dread
Oh those boogey men
Beneath my bed

They told me stories about
peril and grief
I had a few good examples
And I begged for relief
I took their advice
Now I’m paying the price
Cuz those boogey men
Moved inside my head

Chorus
I did what they said
And I buried my dreams
I put of the walls
Became afraid of it all
I did what they said
And I buried my dreams
I covered my heart
Didn’t want to be seen

After too many years
I’m embarrassed to say
All the shoulds and couldn’ts
I learned to obey
Now I’m seeing the cost
So many moments lost
So its bye, bye boogey men
Get out of my head

Chorus
Now I’m doing what I want
And I’m living my dreams
Tearing down the walls
Embracing it all
Now I’m doing what I want
And I’m living my dreams
I’m openening my heart
Cuz I wanna be seen
