Song Lyric Sunday – Light in the Hallway by Pentatonix

Ever since Adelle introduced me to Pentatonix, I have been in love with them.  I started singing pretty young and was in a choir all through high school.  This group makes me think of those times and how much I loved harmonizing with a group of singers.

I honestly didn’t know which song I was going to pick when I posted the theme yesterday, but as I was laying in bed this morning, I thought of this song and I realized it said almost exactly what I said in my post yesterday.

I don’t know about you, but there are still times that I just want to call my Mom and have her chase the monsters away.  I hope my kids always know that I am here for them, no matter how old they are.

I do hope you enjoy this song as much as I do.

Light in the Hallway by Pentatonix
Written by Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi and Audra Mae
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

Close your eyes, lay your head down
Now it’s time to sleep
May you find great adventure
As you lie and dream
If you’re scared of the darkness
I will calm your fear
There’s a light in the hallway
So you know I’m here

So count your blessings every day
It makes the monsters go away
And everything will be okay
You are not alone
You are right at home
Goodnight, goodnight

You won’t need me forever
But I’ll still be here
For we all have our nightmares
Even me, my dear
From now on, if you need me
You can sing this song
There’s a light in the hallway
Burning all night long

So count your blessings every day
It makes the monsters go away
And everything will be okay
You are not alone
You are right at home
Goodnight, goodnight
Goodnight, goodnight

  1. Pentatonix as a group is amazing. It always shocks me what a cappella has become nowadays. I can’t really sing myself (well, I can carry a tune but I have an ugly voice) but it does just amaze me how they manage to sound like a full band.

  2. Another new band for me this week. They sound a bit haunting to me – is that just this song? I love some of the lines (especially the one about how counting your blessings makes the monsters go away).
