I was afraid of the dark
I didn't mean to be, but it got me
Monsters lived under my bed
But you kept saying "It's all in your head"


I was afraid of the dark
When I was 4 years old, it went too far
Mama would sit by my bed
Chase away ghosts that were filling up my head


I was afraid of the dark
And all the things that could go oh so, wrong
Soon as the sun went down
All of my fears would come creeping out


So, you turned on the lights
And everything was bright
& I thought the fear was over
But soon I came to learn
Demons are everywhere...


So, I went back inside without any lights
And I felt safer than ever
Because then I could decide what's make-believe or real-life...
Mmm, then I could decide what's make-believe or real-life...


Are you afraid of the darkness?
Light shows up all of the demons
Are you afraid of the darkness?
Light shows up all of your weaknesses


Are you afraid of the dark?
I was afraid of the dark...

Sometimes I get scared of what I can't see
But I think some of the stuff that we see everyday (on the news ect.)
is scarier than anything we could ever imagine...





LYRICS:


I was afraid of the dark
I didn't mean to be, but it got me
Monsters lived under my bed
But you kept saying "It's all in your head"


I was afraid of the dark
When I was 4 years old, it went too far
Mama would sit by my bed
Chase away ghosts that were filling up my head


I was afraid of the dark
And all the things that could go oh so, wrong
Soon as the sun went down
All of my fears would come creeping out


So, you turned on the lights
And everything was bright
& I thought the fear was over
But soon I came to learn
Demons are everywhere...


So, I went back inside without any lights
And I felt safer than ever
Because then I could decide what's make-believe or real-life...
Mmm, then I could decide what's make-believe or real-life...


Are you afraid of the darkness?
Light shows up all of the demons
Are you afraid of the darkness?
Light shows up all of your weaknesses


Are you afraid of the dark?
I was afraid of the dark...

I loved this haiku that Debi posted & wrote a little song around it!

I tried to just learn the pronounciations from Debi's recording that her Mum did, but I'm not sure if some of the inflections that I used may have changed meanings of words, so if you have any notes for my pronounciation etc.
please let me know, & I can re-record!

Thanks to Debi & her mum for sharing this beautiful haiku!

"Fallen to the earth
the flower's final farewell
rests upon its roots"

One of my favourite things that I learned from Japan's culture and tradition was "Mottainai"
You'll hear someone say this if you're wasting something - throwing away food, pouring water out, anything.
It's kind of like someone exclaiming "Don't waste that!", but that's not the direct translation
(I'm not sure what is or if there even is one!)

What I really loved about it was that it links in to the shinto belief that objects have souls...
And there is always a way that you could re-use something
or maybe just don't take as much in the first place (o:

I don't really have a specific story that goes with this I just really liked this whole part of japanese culture
& its something that has stuck with me!
