Lyrics

Oh the island winds they whistle through the halls
Howling in the night
The pitch black darkness surrounds us all
Thunder rolling, bouts of light

I peek through blinds into the dark
Violent rain and frantic trees
Branches bang on window frames
Fences bend on fallen leaves

Oh the shadows on the walls
The howling in the halls
It sounds just like a ghost
Or am I dreaming
Am I dreaming
Am I dreaming
Ohhh
Ohhh

The storm grows like weeds
Slanted rain and fallen trees
My heart races for fear of these
Someone help me please

Oh the shadows on the walls
The howling in the halls
It sounds just like a ghost
Or am I dreaming
Am I dreaming
Am I dreaming
Ohhh
Ohhh

I am in a haunted house
The clock says 2am
I toss and turn I can't go to bed
When will this all end

Oh the shadows on the walls
The howling in the halls
It sounds just like a ghost
Or am I dreaming
Am I dreaming
Am I dreaming
Ohhh
Ohhh

Oh the shadows on the walls
The howling in the halls
It sounds just like a ghost
Or am I dreaming
Am I dreaming
Am I dreaming
Ohhh
Ohhh
