Alice Cooper – A Bedtime Story lyrics

Lay still, Steven, and I’ll tell you a bedtime story.

I’ll tell you a bedtime story that’s not for all

Children. It’s a very special story, that only special

Children will understand. It’s a half-awake story, and

It will be better if you close your eyes. It’s a

Story that takes place in a dream, like other

Nightmares you have known. It’s a dream that Alice has

Dreamed. You can dream along with him. You can follow

Alice down the staircase, deep, down the stairs to the

Pit where he doesn’t want to go, but he has to.

If you go to sleep now, Steven, you can go down the

Long and endless stairway and sing sweet songs to Alice

And free him. And if you can’t get to sleep, Steven,

And in the middle of the night you get out of bed, when

Everything is quiet and the trees are still and the

Birds are hiding from the dark, you can lie down on

Your bedroom floor and press your ear tightly to the

Boards. If you listen very carefully you can hear

Alice searching for a way out, forever chasing

Rainbows.

Sleep tight, Steven. And have a good night.
