Walker Hayes Halloween

[Walker Hayes:]

Before I even learned to play a note, I was on stage

Mastering the art of selling myself at a young age

Fear and insecurity drove me like a Maserati

High school was like showing up at a costume party

I was a comedian, an athlete

A golden boy, a black sheep

Whatever I had to be to make the world throw candy at me

And college was the same act, different play

It was October 31st every day

And the real world was an all too familiar street

Another trick, another treat

Then I knock-knock-knocked on your door

Every mask I ever wore

Shattered like glass on the floor

And it was like

[Nicolle Galyon:]

Halloween ended

To all the people I pretended to be

Rest in peace, rest in peace, rest in peace

Halloween ended

To all the people I pretended to be

Rest in peace, rest in peace, rest in peace

[Walker Hayes:]

Hell, I don’t know why I’m like this

But what would it change if I knew

Maybe my parents messed up

But, hey, they’re just dressed up kids too

Maybe I guess what I’m trying to say is I love you

For being somebody I’m not ashamed to introduce my skeletons to

I still put on my Superman cape and hide in it

But when I’m with you it comes untied for a minute

Hits the ground in the shadow of your skin

For the first time I was comfortable in mine

When I knock-knock-knocked on your door

Every mask I ever wore

Shattered like glass on the floor

It was like

[Nicolle Galyon:]

Halloween ended

To all the people I pretended to be

Rest in peace, rest in peace, rest in peace

Halloween ended

To all the people I pretended to be

Rest in peace, rest in peace, rest in peace

[Walker Hayes:]

When I knock-knock-knocked on your door

Every mask I ever wore

Shattered like glass on the floor

When I knock-knock-knocked on your door

(When I knocked on your door)

Every mask I ever wore

Shattered like glass on the floor

It was like

[Nicolle Galyon & Walker Hayes:]

Halloween ended

To all the people I pretended to be

Rest in peace, rest in peace, rest in peace

Halloween ended

To all the people I pretended to be

Rest in peace, rest in peace, rest in peace

Halloween ended

When I knock-knock-knocked on your door

To all the people I pretended to be

Halloween ended

Rest in peace, rest in peace, rest in peace

When I knock-knock-knocked on your door

Halloween ended

When I knock-knock-knocked on your door

To all the people I pretended to be

Halloween ended

When I knock-knock-knocked on your door

Rest in peace
