Lyrics

I thought I saw a black cat, a shadow ‘cross my path,
The moon was making darkness broken by a silver bath,
Noises on the edge of hearing make my heart run fast
On the night when the spirits walk and summer dies at last.

Jack-O-Lantern, who are you grinning for tonight?
Jack-O-Lantern on the jagged edge of light,
Jack-O-Lantern, won’t you tell me what you think?
As toward the horizon the pale moon slowly sinks.

I thought I felt a cold breath, a shiver down my spine
Don’t want to look behind me, ‘cause I won’t like what I find
I thought I saw a glint of light, a hunter’s yellow eye
On the night when when the spirits live but summer has to die.

Jack-O-Lantern, who are you grinning for tonight?
Jack-O-Lantern on the jagged edge of light,
Jack-O-Lantern, won’t you tell me what you think?
As toward the horizon the pale moon slowly sinks.

Jack-O-Lantern, who are you screaming for tonight?
Jack-O-Lantern, are you spoiling for a fight?
Jack-O-Lantern, don’t you know your prime is past?
On the night when the spirits walk and summer dies at last?
