the trees have eyes lyrics – king diamond

the trees have eyes

i’d been riding hard most of the night, wooded ravines on a mountain side
my horse was getting tired… and so was i
up there the moon was full, down here darkness ruled
the trees were so much higher than they were meant to be

in what is known as “the devil’s hide”
i knew i was not alone, and it was not that crazy moon above
oh no… i could feel the trees have eyes

i used to know this road so well, many a time i was here before
but now it seemed so different, the road was no more
i was lost, i stopped and looked around
i had this eerie feeling, that i was being watched

in what is known as “the devil’s hide”
i knew i was not alone, and it was not that crazy moon above
oh no… i could feel the trees have eyes

watching me
the trees have eyes, watching me

then the sound i didn’t wanna hear, howling at the moon
eyes i didn’t wanna see, i should have turned around

so much louder, the the howling was chilling my bones
one wolf grown to a dozen, and here i was alone
yellow eyes… they were everywhere… yellow eyes… as i prepared to die

suddenly there she was, in a halo of light
suddenly there she was, silvery black and white
the bluest magical eyes staring right into mine
never ever had i seen in a wolf, such a beautiful beast

in what is known as “the devil’s hide”
i knew i was not alone, and it was not that crazy moon above
oh no… i could feel the trees have eyes
