Early in the morning
While most are asleep
A tired woman wanders home alone
On a dark and empty street
The moon shines down from above
In the grass the crickets tweet
And unknown to the wandering woman
A phantom stranger lurks in the trees
 
Early in the morning 
While most are asleep
A tired woman wanders home alone
Unknowingly being pursued relentlessly
Feeling a sense of paranoia
She turns on her feet
Finding herself staring
At only a dark and empty street
She turns back around and quickens her pace
Aiming to make it home with the utmost haste
 
Early in the morning
While most are asleep
A frightened woman hurries home alone
On a dark and empty street
From behind her a phantom stranger emerges
Out from behind the trees
It whispers her name, sending chills down her spine
Causing her to turn around and utter a piercing shriek
 
Early in the morning
While most are asleep
A terrified woman stares death in the eyes
And learns her soul is to be reaped
She begs and pleads to live out more days
But the reaper responds , "Nay,"
"For three hours ago in your sleep
You passed away."
 
Early in the morning
While most are asleep
A woman's body is discovered alone in a house
On a dark and empty street
