The Lyrics

I'M BACK!! Sorry for the EXTREMELY LONG WAIT and kudos to Max Power for motivating me to get back to writing again! I recently turned 13, so I figured I'd celebrate with a parody! This is my duet with Jonathan, which is a parody of a Restless Heart song (it's really good). In parentheses I've put who sings what (ex. I sing, and have written, the second verse). Since this was the only parody that I was already prepared to release, I'll probably have to limit it to one winner every time the Weird Awards come around. Sorry guys... Anyway, thanks to Jonathan for writing the chorus and the first verse! I've had a wonderful time here and you all are great! Enjoy!
(Jonathan)
It's no secret that I really don't like the dark
And given the choice, I'd rather play with sharks
And I do truly believe we're in for a storm
To make me wish I weren't born, you hear that thunder?

(Jonathan/Logan the Amazing)
Why did it have to turn out the lights?
Power outages send me running for cover
Won't somebody please, please help me?
Now yellow-stained, no longer bright white
The once clean sheets I've wet, in my skittish blunder
Grab a flashlight, somebody, I can't see!

(Logan the Amazing)
Man, it's a fact that thunder leaves me so breathless
I don't know why I'm so scared, I'm always so stressed
I sorta wish I was a man without ears
So I can sleep in peace at night, without hearing the thunder

(Jonathan/Logan the Amazing)
Why did it have to turn out the lights?
Power outages send me running for cover
Won't somebody please, please help me?
Now yellow-stained, no longer bright white
The once clean sheets I've wet, in my skittish blunder
Grab a flashlight, somebody, I can't see!

(Jonathan/Logan the Amazing)
Oh, Why did it have to turn out the lights?
Power outages send me running for cover
(Won't somebody please)
Won't somebody please, please help me?
Now yellow-stained, no longer bright white
The once clean sheets I've wet, in my skittish blunder
(Oh, help me, oh, help me)
Oh, help me, why?
Oh, help me...

(Logan the Amazing)
Why can't I ever sleep in the night?
Why did all that thunder make me have to suffer?
Won't somebody please, please help me
I hope it's not like this when I die
Mommy, I'm right here hiding under the covers!!
God, tell me why, why can I never see?!
Again, sorry for the extremely long wait and thank you guys for all your support! I hope you all enjoyed this and, yes, there are MORE parodies coming RIGHT NOW!

Glad to see you are back in form. You are the type of artist here that I will go out of my way to read while listening to the YouTube video (because I never heard of this tune), just so I can enjoy it. So no rating until I get home from work.

If you looked at your last entry before this, you'll have noticed that the offending comments were removed by Admin. That happened within 24 hours of their first appearance. You were being harassed by a truly vicious troll who has plagued this site off and on since mid-2013. Hopefully, if if happens again, Admin will intervene quicker

Thanks guys! You’re both amazing 🤩! Just saying though, Jonathan did a TON of the heavy lifting, and without him, this parody wouldn’t even exist! Again, sorry for the hiatus and there are more parodies coming soon! You can suggest some ideas in the comments below!

Thanks Jonathan! I'm looking forward to making more parodies (and, maybe, more collabs)!
