lyrics

Here I am again,
naked in the pale moonlight
whiskey makes my teeth grow sharp
careful I might bite

Hair's getting in my eyes
can't see the forest for the trees
weight of your world is on my shoulders now, darling
it's making me shaky at the knees

And the devil's here now
he's in my bones
so don't you worry 'bout me
no, I'm never all alone
and I'm howling out your name
but it's time that you've been shown

That I'm a Monster
I got no right
to call you up this late at night
I'm a monster
and that's a fact
so if I run, don't chase me back

Here we go again
faster than a westbound train
grass is getting caught between my claws now, darling
cold blood is pumping through my veins

And the devil's fine now
he's by my side
don't you worry 'bout me
this ain't the first time that I cried
and I'm howling out your name
but I think you'd better hide

Cause I'm a Monster
I got no right
to call you up, this late at night
I'm a monster
and that's a fact
so if I run, don't chase me back

The mob is gaining ground
might as well tie me to my stake
my evil eyes are closing now, darling
but this beastly heart of mine won't break

And the devil's wise now
he says beware
but don't you worry 'bout me
no, I know what's fair is fair
and I'm howling out your name
but you know you should be scared

Cause I'm a Monster
I got no right
to call you up, this late at night
I'm a monster
and that's a fact
so if I run, don't chase me back
No don't chase me back
