Metallica Enter Sandman Lyrics

Last updated: 11/12/2014 02:04:42 AM

Say your prayers little one
Don't forget my son
To include everyone
I tuck you in
Warm within
Keep you free from sin
'Til the sandman he comes

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We're off to never never-land

Something's wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren't of snow white
Dreams of war
Dreams of lies
Dreams of dragons fire
And of things that will bite, yeah

Sleep with one eye open
Grippin' your pillow tight
Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We're off to never never-land

Now I lay me down to sleep (x2)
Pray the lord my soul to keep (x2)
And if I die before I wake (x2)
Pray the lord my soul to take (x2)

Hush little baby don't say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
It's just the beast under your bed
In your closet in your head

Exit light
Enter night
Grain of sand

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We're off to never never-land

We're off to never never-land

Take my hand
We're off to never never-land
Take my hand
We're off to never never-land

We're off to never never-land

awesome | Reviewer: blackrangerfan4ever | 11/12/14

this song is awesome and is remind me of gays and running away from them and waking up and then all of them disappearing and if my words are too deep for you too handle the GO TO HELL.

Kick ass song | Reviewer: Jack | 12/23/12

This is one of the greatest metal songs of all time and Metallica is unarguably the greatest thrash band ever any headbanger worth his salt has a copy of the black album somewhere

LOVE this song!!! | Reviewer: Natasha | 8/20/12

i will be 12 technically tomorrow (its almost 4 in the morning) and i LOVE this song!!!!my favorite metallica song is whiskey in the jar because when i was really little (before my youngest sister was born) my dad would play it and it always reminds me of sitting in the car with my younger sister (named molly).my dad is dead so it brings back memories and i always did like it.ive heard enter sandman a couple times on the radio and never knew what it was called until technically yesterday.wierd thing is molly doesnt like much metal but my youngest sister and me do.shes with me too much.

WOW! | Reviewer: Lauren | 9/22/11

This isn't my favorite song of all time, but its the better of metallica. I like this song a lot, and when i found out id be playing it in band, i was excited! This is fun to play on the trumpet and it sounds good with the instruments. My band diector is so fun! We play you give love a bad name by bon jovi! Im only 11 too, so this is quite entertaining. Seek and destroy is a good song too.

I was at the live shit conseret | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/16/11

Ok i get that this is a fav song of metallica fans. Come on i was at the consert. Metallica played Seek and Destroy way better than enter sand man. I know that u pepl love enter sand man. So FUCKEN WHAT. Fade to black is way better. Trust me I was at the Live Shit conseret.[I suck at spelling.]

Lost soul! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/19/10

This is one of the best songs for metallica the best version for it its from the live show : Live Shit Binge And Purge they really ROCKED that night i wish i was there i keep on playing this song daily from 4 years till today i MUST hear it once or twice a day =D its just a common fucked up feeling "THE UNNAMED FEELING" that we have metallica express it in their music with their insane hard rock and there voice tune, it makes it pretty much amazing all respect to "metallica music" and one question could anyone help me and give all the names of metallica live shows or Concerts since the very first one PLEASE...

Hip hop fan...loving Metallica | Reviewer: GMac | 10/6/09

I have to say that I'm a hip hop nut! But, after hearing THIS song by Metallica some years ago, I've become a HUGE fan! After hearing this song, I got a hold of as much of their music as I could (past and present) and I have yet to be disappointed! I'm still a hip hop nut - but I now have as much Metallica as I do of any other artist!!

Well then | Reviewer: Official Cd's sound better then Pirated! | 5/29/08

This is a great song! One of the famous landmarks of rock back in the 90's. But with all these people accusing Metallica of stealing it, well you've prolly stolen from Metallica! "Downloading" their songs instead of buying them!! You're obviously not a true fan but a jerk yourself if you do that crap.

simply great` | Reviewer: santosh hamal | 4/29/08

this is the song i adore most performed by the popular thrash icon metallica and its words is simply great and all the members has given thsir full effort to make this rocking as always the band rock the world and the universe

So What? | Reviewer: Tenebrius | 4/10/08

Look, Metallica has produced awesome music. I dont fucking care if the name was stolen or the drummer is the fag, All I know is that this band has brought to be the music which i consider nearest to perfection and your stories make absolutely no difference to me. All enjoy their music as i have always done.

Thanks | Reviewer: Dave | 11/16/07

Fenyx, Apology accepted and I also apologize for my crude remarks. For the record I wanted you guys to realize that the project was copywrote by the guitarist who is now wackoo ( he is a transvestite in tuscon AZ area)When he wacked out, he took all of the materials including the mixed master. We had some killer tunes including the bashing song that opened our shows called Brain Damaged. The first stanza of the song went like this, STARS FALL FROM THE SKY, AS WE WATCH THE ANGELS FLY, WAR WAS AROUND BUT WE COULD NOT TELL, WAS THIS EARTH OR IS THIS HELL? I will give more info later cause I have to get back to work. see ya
